Kongskrona is a 1,818-metre (5,965 ft) tall mountain peak in Sunndal Municipality in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. It is the higher of the two peaks on the main mountain Vinnufjellet. Its neighbour peak is Dronningkrona which is about 2 metres (6 ft 7 in) shorter. The name means King's crown in Norwegian (the neighboring peak Dronningkrona means Queen's crown).

The peak lies about 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) northeast of the village of Sunndalsøra. To the north of the mountain lies the Innerdalen valley. The top of the mountain is the glacier called Vinnubreen or Vinnufonna.[1]
