Take a leisurely hike up Sukkertoppen mountain for picturesque views of Ålesund, the Ålesund fjord and the ocean. Most visitors make the relatively easy climb in 40 to 60 minutes. It’s located on Hessa, one of the seven islands that make up the municipality of Ålesund. There are plenty of places to rest along the way on this family-friendly trail but visitors should wear sturdy shoes as the trail is a combination of gravel, dirt and grass.
