The View is Worth Every Step!

We slip into our sea kayaks and join the vibrant city life in the sound. Our senses come alive with the buzz, aromas and the pastel colors of the art nouveau facades adorning the city’s main artery.

Exiting the sound Borgund Fjord’s infinite sky opens exposing Sula Mountain and the Sunnmøre Alps; our kayaks are immediately drawn towards the 102-year-old landmark, Slinningsbua, that marks the entrance to Ålesund harbour.   

Gazing Westward out to the infinite waters of the North Atlantic gliding down Hessa Fjord past ancient farmland delightfully mixed with ultra-modern homes to the trail head of Sugar Summit. Upon landing at our take out refuel on hearty sandwiches before setting out for the summit.  The trail is well trodden as we make our way diligently upwards to the summit and the 360o view of Western Norway and it’s Art Nouveau city.
