Excursions in Andalsnes

This is our first time traveling to Norway and we'll be visiting Andalsnes this summer. Our Cruise line has a few options for tours. Wondering if anyone has insight as to which will be best scenery and experience for our tour while on our Cruise stop in Andalsnes. Please note that we're also visiting Geiranger, Flam, Stavenger, Bergen and have these excusions already planned although we're in need of suggestions as we're not finding as much info on the Andalsnes region.

Train Excursion to the Romsdal Region (3 hour tour) with Train along River and then reach Bjorli station transfer to Coach to Troll Wall.


Trollstigheimen Excursion 3.5 hours by Coach along narrow 11 hairpin bends. Includes Isterdal Valley.

The Atlantic Road is an all day excursion although I recall someone saying it wasn't quite worth the time and money during such a short stay.

Anyone having any recommendations will be appreciated!

In my opinion Trollstigheimen will be the most interesting.

Romsdal is nice, but Trollstigen is unique. (And I agree - Atlantic road is not worth a detour from Åndalsnes).

And btw. the Troll wall is just a 10 min detour from the road to Trollstigen

Another option (if you like hiking, steep hills and nice view) is to hike Romsdalstrappa https://www.visitnorway.com/places-to-go/fjord-norway/northwest/listings-northwest/romsdalstrappa-(715-m-a-s-l-)/1007/
