kurt :From the centre of Ålesund, by kayak, we went to the fjord, crossed the fairway and turned to the other side of the land end and landed at the border of the primary school. We crossed the road above the school and followed the Sukkertoppvegen westwards until we found the sign where the path starts (right to Nr 22). The path is gravelled in the beginning, passes a grove and then the path is clearly visible all the way to the top. Past half the way you're passing the transmitter mast. And then...an unforgettable view expects you ...360°...WAW !
kurt :....we went to the island by car through the different tunnels under the fjord. These tunnels connects the different islands. Before starting the hike we visited the timber lighthouse ...and then to the top. In almost the middle of our hike we passed a beautiful lake. The view at the top was miraculous. Back down...we went to the sea for a pheeric swim ...see above....

Ålesund and All Its Charm
kurt :...the thing is that you can visit all places by foot. Walk to the charming harbour, the art nouveau centre of the town, the church, the old pharmacie or take the stone stairs to the higher level of Mt. Aklacould which enables you to reach a fantastic viewpoint for taking photos over the seaport. Certainly when it gets dark...just before sunset ...it's awesome!!!!!
