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.
