Walking & hiking

The combination of fjords, mountains and the ocean represent refreshing contrasts for anyone interested in hiking or climbing. The topography of the Geiranger, Ålesund & Sunnmøre region is a part of Norway with great variations, from a coastline facing the ocean, to the deepest fjords and the highest mountains in the famous Sunnmøre Alps.
