Møre og Romsdal

Møre og Romsdal is a county in Western Norway. It is the most northerly of the famous west coast fjord regions and its northern location possibly cuts visitors – but it yields to none of the others in its scenery. It is an area of iconic fjords but also of alpine mountains rising directly from the ocean, countless waterfalls, myriad of islands, rugged coast and great valleys. There are also interesting man-made sights such as the unusual city of Ålesund and the Trollstigen mountain road.
