Kayak Ålesund’s Fjords and Hike Sugar Summit
Borgund Fjord’s infinite sky opens, exposing Sula Mountain and the Sunnmøre Alps. We glide across this famous fjord to the secret archipelago at the eastern end of Hessa fjord. From here a 103-year-old landmark, Slinningsbua, is our bearing as we slip across.
Gazing westward out to the infinite waters of the North Atlantic, we glide down Hessa Fjord past ancient farmland delightfully mixed with ultra-modern homes to the trailhead of Sugar Summit.
Upon landing at the trailhead take-out, a rejuvenating snack energizes us before we set out for the summit. The trail is well-trodden as we make our way diligently upward to the summit where we refuel on hearty sandwiches and enjoy the 360-degree view of Western Norway and its 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. Also, 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; if you have forgotten anything like sunscreen, water, etc. we will be able to help you out.
