The area to the north of Molde, Moldemarka, is a great walking/skiing area all year round with its network of paths, walking trails and skiing tracks. Several of the forest roads take you into wilderness areas where there are information boards with maps at many of the starting points, as well as signposts along the trails. In winter there are approx. 10 km of prepared skiing tracks and a good 7 km of these are floodlit. Outside the skiing season, the "classic" walk is the Gamle Vardeveg from Romsdal's Museum via the Storlihytta cabin to Varden (alt. 407 metres). It takes about one hour to reach the top, where in summer you can buy refreshments at the Vardestua restaurant. The eastern part of Moldemarka is easily accessible
from the car park at Jensgurulia in Nordbyen. To the west, we recommend the walk to Meekdalen and Kringstadsetra, while further inland you can walk up to Frænavarden (alt.588 metres) and Valltua (alt. 586 metres). There are many breathtaking views. Walking maps for Molde and Fræna can be bought in bookshops.
