Overview
More
From Sukkertoppen (The Sugar Top), you can get a magnificent view with both city, coast and fjord in one! From the centre of alesund you can drive, bicycle or take the local bus to Hessa and eventually park at the primary school, just west of the roundabout in Hessaskaret. Cross the road above the school and follow the Sukkertoppvegen westwards until you find the sign where the path starts, at the right by number 22. The path is gravelled in the beginning, passes a grove and the path is clearly visible (but might be wet and dirty) all the way to the top. You are past half the way when passing the transmitter mast. An unforgettable view expects you!

Uteguiden Activity Centre Alesund (uteguiden.com) has e-bikes or 21 speed. We rented for 4 hours and biked around the island counterclockwise, away from the downtown area to avoid traffic (don’t want to be THAT person slowing down cars!). Storhaugen Park is a nice uphill gravel...More

This a great hike that more or less anyone can manage. If you only have a couple of hours but still want to be active and see Ålesund from a different side, this is a good choice.

This hike has some climbing but you end up with a beautiful view of the ocean with the city of Alesund behind you. It isn't a long hike but does climb quite a bit. Very highly recommended.

A must do, if you are visiting the city of Aalesund. Some sections can be a bit steep and tricky if you are not use to hiking.

Someone else reported no 618 bus and ask the driver to be sure you're going in the right direction. Ask to be let off at the school and there is a hiker sign.
