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!

Great hike. We did it with kids (youngest 8yrs) no problem. Views are fantastic. Our biggest concern was the mud which was slippery. Rainfall was recent so quite muddy. Happy hiking!

Instead of just doing the steps of Aksla, be more adventurous and go climb Sukkertoppen. We walked from our cruise ship to the start of the hike, quite a distance but perfectly manageable, then started the climb. For a non-hiker, I was very comfortable most...More

If you're a regular hill walker then this will be a stroll for you but it's worth it for the view. The starting point is a couple of miles from Ålesund town centre. It's perfectly walkable but is easier by car or bus. The starting...More

Let's start from the good part: The view from the top is amazing, you can have a 360 degrees panorama of the city plus its surroundings, that's thrilling. The hike can be considered easy to moderate, but we did the hike on a rainy day...More

We chose to hike up on a day where it was really hot (The weather forecast said showers!). The hike can be tricky in places due to a large amount of tree roots sticking up, but if you watch where you are putting your feet...More

It's not a very difficult walk but it's got a few steep sections, the reasonably fit shouldn't have a problem.The day we went was quite chilly with some rain and it was quite windy at the top, so a waterproof windbreaker is a good idea....More
