All reviews great view worth the climb catch your breath worth the effort city park surrounding islands viewing platform enjoy the view walk up road train hop on hop off bus climb the stairs by foot nice walk nice cafe cruise ship sunny day
Is something you will probably breathlessy utter a few times getting here. 418 steps. This is how many steps you will take from the bottom of the viewpoint to the top. And if you arrived on a cruise ship, it doesnt include the uphill wander...More
I was road tripping across Norway and ended up staying here an extra day I loved it that much! The viewpoint from the top was the main reason why I wanted to go, but once I got into town I fell in love with it...More
400 stairs above the park of Ålesund you can enjoy the fantastic view of the city, the ocean and most of the surrounding islands and mountains. A great place to visit for the experience, exercise and pictures. The restaurant did not impress the same way.
All I can say is don't miss the sights. It is such a beautiful sight especially at night!
And a activity for the whole family that costs nothing.
There are two ways up. We took the easy route as it was getting chilly and we...More
I always come here when my friends from overseas comes to visit me here in Ålesund. This is the no.1 place to visit for the view of Ålesund in all their magazines. It is also one of the top places you see on a tourist...More

Hi, the climb is not as bad as it seems and there are many resting areas with benches along the way. Some steps are very short and some are average. Even if you get only half way up, you will still get great views of the city and the ocean.
Another option is to drive up there, a road goes all the way to the top.
Have a great trip!
Hello dear Norway TA community! Greeting from Singapore! My family and I will be traveling to Norway on July 1st. There will be 4 of us (with my mum, age 50+). We like to see a little bit of Norwegian cities and a lot more of nature and wildlife. I am hoping to do at least one hike but not sure if this will be a stretch to the itinerary. We have drafted an 11-days itinerary and would like to seek your advice on how feasible it is. A few qns in particular: 1. Is this itinerary/route...More

This looks awfully rushed, and I think not doable. Day 1 : if you are arriving from Singapore after a very long flight you will be very tired by the time you arrive in the city. If your plan arrives at 12.30 then I think you will be in Oslo center no sooner than 2pm. Won't you be exhausted by then? Day 4 : where did you pick up the rental car? Day 6 to 9 : how are you planning to get to Lofoten? If by car, it will take you the whole time. If by bus/train/plane, you need to allocate one...More

Spend day 4 in Bergen. Hire car in Bergen and do round trip to Stavanger. Take NiN on way to Oslo. One-way car hire is expensive - your drive on day 7 is too long, especially if you want to stay the morning in Stavanger. Driving the interior route between Bergen and Stavanger will get you just as good scenery. Skip visiting Stavanger itself. Avoid flying - even the shortest flight takes several hours with airport transfers and waiting time - none of which is scenic.

Sounds good. From Stryn I suggest you go to Hellesylt and take the Hellesylt-Geiranger ferry. Going from Geiranger to Ålesund I suggest you do the Trollstigen road to Åndalsnes, then Åndalsnes-Ålesund. There will be drop-off charges for one way car rental.
