The walk up seemed easier and quicker than I remembered it from my last visit in summer many years ago, and I was pleasantly surprised to note that they've added markings every 50 steps or so to let you know how far you've come...so you always know how far to go! It wasn't a good day weather-wise at all, but... More

We walked up the 418+ steps to the top. We are in our mid 60s and it was just fine although we did have to stop once to rest and also take some pictures. The view is amazing and well worth the trip. There is a nice snack shop (and at night it looks like it would be a beautiful... More

The view from Mount Aksla is not to be missed when visiting Alesund, Norway. You can walk up the 418 steps or catch the cute little train which drives through the pretty streets of the town. You have a panoramic view from the mountain top of Alesund below and across the archipelago to the Sunnmore Alps. There is also a... More

This adresse on the Borgernes way and the Aksla Stadion is nice and good out. I was there on the autumn in 2014 with some pupils and some teachers/assistants. With sincerely from Anders from Norway :) ;) <3 (y) O:) B|.

This is just a regular hiking side behind the mountain and you are literally walking behind the mountain and do not get a good view.

This is most certainly the best and most picturesque part of Alesund! It is the city centre around which everything else is built! The canal-like area, the walk way around it, the bridge over it, the restaurants, cafes and shops around it are all just part of the charm that make this a picture perfect postcard-like place. We visited this... More
