Your guide will meet you at the quay and go with you on a short bus ride to the mountain's base. You will climb 260 meters in an hour with a gentle slope. Enjoy built-in photo stops and storytelling during the journey. Remember to wear appropriate shoes for the possibly slippery path. We'll return to the ship by bus.
The people of Ålesund (and Norway in general) love mountain hiking, and you can join in to experience the magnificent views. A knowledgeable guide will lead you safely along the trail while sharing the city's rich history.
Ålesund has a captivating story, including the Viking chieftain Gange-Rolf, the klipfish, and the town's great fire. In 1904, the city was devastated by a fire, leaving over 10,000 people homeless and 850 houses destroyed. However, an extraordinary reconstruction effort took place, resulting in the remarkable art nouveau city of Ålesund. Its elegant brick houses with beautiful lines and ornamentation rose from the ashes.
The trail to Sukkertoppen guides you through a small copse before opening up to breathtaking views of the city and the Alps of Sunnmøre. At the summit, standing 314 meters above sea level, you'll be treated to spectacular vistas of the sea, the fjord, and the mountains.
