Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: 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!

This is definately worth the effort. Many locals go to the top of this mountain every day! No matter time of year or weather conditions.

The views both from the top and when you clear the woods are simply amazing. You get to see the wonderful town of Aalesund from another direction than the traditional photo taken from Fjellstua.
You also get to see the surrounding fjords and islands that has made Aalesund one of the most beautiful cities of the world.

The hike to the top is 20-40 minutes depeding on how fit you are.

Being from Aalesund my tip would be to climb the mountain late in the evening and be at the very top when the sun sets. It doesn't really get dark during nighttime anyway so finding your way back is no problem.

This was a super walk - mostly along a trail but you do need to find your own way at times and scramble up some rocks. The views from the top are amazing. We went up on a Sunday morning and took our time to enjoy the views, it was spectacular.

Short trekking, breath taking view. 30-45 minutes of quite easy walking, not too steep. The trail might be a bit muddy and wet. You can only get there by foot.

If you are going to go for ONE walk when visiting Aalesund, this is the one. You get the most amazing view of Ålesund city, The tour takes not more than 30 mins but it´s kinda slowly upwards :=)
