The view from Sugar Summit is worth every step
We cruise through the cobblestone covered streets uncovering the intricacies of Ålesund’s Art Nouveau architecture, passing churches and crossing bridges on our ride through Ålesund. Riding the length of Asp Island, we cross Steinvåg Sound and make a right heading out around the outer edge of Hessa Island passing beaches, pasturelands, and historic installations from world war II; with the Atlantic on our right, we gaze out over the deep blue waters as the indomitable ocean becomes a fjord.
Halfway down Hessa Fjord, we arrive at the trailhead to Sugar Summit. Leaving our bicycles, we set out on foot for the summit. The trail is well-trodden as we make our way diligently upward to the summit and the 360-degree view of Western Norway and it’s Art Nouveau city.
Kayak More Tomorrow is a fully accredited sea kayak tour company; we know that getting going is what it is all about. Therefore, all our tours begin with our driver picking you up at either at your Ålesund accommodation or the cruise terminal for the short drive out to our staging/launching site. Here, your guide is waiting for you and without further ado, you will gear up and get going. You may leave any extra bags, clothing, etc. that you don’t want to take with you on the trip with us at the launching site. Also, if you have forgotten anything like sunscreen, water, etc. we will be able to help you out here as well.
