The view from Fjellstua is absolutey amazing! It isn't that high above Ålesund, but the view across the town and across the islands and the sea is really stunning. Highly recommended. We came just before sunset and the view towards the snow covered mountains was also something special. Very nice people working in the cafe, and the toast we had,... More

As an Ålesund Authorized Guide I have visited Fjellstua over 40 times this year. At present the walk up to Fjellstua is under re-builing and has only access by road. This work is planned to be finished early 2015 ready for the New Cruise season. Enjoy.

We got up in the morning at 7 a.m..and around 7.40 we started a walk to the top. The stairs are being repaired so we took the road.. It is very well marked. It is quite steep walk but in some 20 min you get to the top (it is not hard walk so almost anyone can do it). and... More

Absolutely magical, beautiful and priceless place. You won't forget it. I had the luck to have relatively good weather (just some light showers) that allowed me to climb all the steps till the top. The journey is amazing and when you get at the top you have that landscape as a prize.

It was one of the most amazing city views I have ever seen. The way up by car is a bit mysterious but it pays off when we reached the top. It was awesome!

As the steps were closed for refurbishment we decided to get a taxi up to the viewpoint . Only cost the price of two beers but well worth it. Great view even on a dull day Found a route down through the trees which was not hard and was good exercise with more views

What a stunning place to seek out for soul delighting views! Fjellstoua lets your eyes drink in the vast and sweeping views across the fjord, islands, mountains and beautiful town of Alesund below. The sun came out too! Loved this place. The pathway up was closed for repairs so we drove up. I was grateful for effective brakes, but my... More

Starting at a pleasant park at the base of the hill the trail slowly makes its way up. There will be benches placed strategically for those that might needed them intermittently. (Would not suggest for handicapped, elderly or young children). Make sure you have comfortable shoes and some water because you will get some exercise. Do not just trek straight... More

When we arrived in port we were handed town street maps by the locals. It is mentioned on the map that the steps are closed for repair at the moment. Seeing that there was a route which went through the woodland we decided to do this. Using the street map for guidance got to the first signpost for the viewpoint.... More
