Location

Valldal is a valley which runs about 30 km from Storfjorden Sunnmøre and ends at the top of Trollstigen.

Valldalen (or sometimes just Valldal) is a valley in Norddal Municipality in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. It is located north of the Norddalsfjorden. The village of Sylte (which is also called Valldal) is located at the end of the valley along the fjord. The river Valldøla flows through the valley, and the Norwegian National Road 63 follows the river through the valley, on its way north to Trollstigen.


The valley lies just outside the northwestern border of Reinheimen National Park. The valley is fertile with a high amount of berry production, especially strawberries. In 2002, the annual production of strawberries was about 900 metric tons (890 long tons; 990 short tons). Previously there was also cement and wood products industry. There is also the Muritunet centre for rehabilitation.


Sylte or Valldal is the administrative center of Norddal Municipality in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. The village is situated at the southern end of the Valldalen valley along the shore of the Norddalsfjorden near the mouth of the Valldøla river, just west of the entrance to the Tafjorden. The 0.71-square-kilometre (180-acre) village has a population (2012) of 411. This gives the village a population density of 579 inhabitants per square kilometre (1,500/sq mi).


The village is located about 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) northeast of the village of Eidsdal (across the fjord), and it's about 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) northwest of the village of Tafjord which is accessed via several long tunnels including the Heggur Tunnel. Norwegian County Road 63 runs north through Sylte on its way through the Valldalen valley up to the Trollstigenarea.


The village is home to many industries, including production of cement and wood products, fish farming, and tourism. The Sylte Church is located here.
