BASE

It was here, in Trollveggen, parachute jumping from mountains started in Norway in 1980. The Finish, Jorma Öster, was the first to jump from Trollveggen and this attracted parachute jumpers from all over the world.

Several people lost their lives, and in 1986, it became illegal to jump from Trollveggen, despite this, many people still jump from Trollveggen. In recent years it has become popular to jump from Romsdalshorn, which is legal. From Trollveggen Camping you have panorama views of this activity, many jumpers land on the camping grounds. There is also BASE jumping from Karlskråtind, approximately 10 km up the valley, and from Gridsetskolten in Innfjorden, where the annual World BASE Race takes place.
