What to expect?

As adventure capital of the fjords, Alesund is located right at the entrance of the fjords. After meeting up at the activity center, located in the heart of Alesund, you will start off with a 15 minute drive through the city center of the Art Nouveau town. The whole activity will take approximately 2.5 hours. After driving over to the next island called Hessa, you will arrive at the base of Mt. Sukkertoppen, or Sugar Loaf Mountain, where you will commence your hike. Mt. Sukkertoppen is Alesund’s local mountain and will let you walk through a calm and relaxing forest at first. No need to worry, the forest won’t be there for long. As you make your way further up the mountain the forest will open up and will offer you one magnificent view after the other. The rest of the hike, which is the biggest part, will be over a very wide ridge up to the top of the sugar loaf mountain. When having reached the 314 meters above sea level you will be rewarded with a 360° panoramic view all over the area. Here you’ll be able to look out over the city of Alesund, the famous Sunnmøre alps, the North Sea and all of its beauty.
