One of our stops while on our cruise was Alesund. We were only in port from 8am-2pm so were limited to options. After walking up Fjellstua we took a cab to Sugar Top. Before our trip I researched the heck out of how to take...More

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

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.
