Our last stop before the airport on the last day of my weekend on the West Coast was Aksla, the famous mountain and viewpoint in Ålesund. As my uncle said while driving up: "You cannot have been to Ålesund without going to Aksla". Because of the lack of time, we decided to drive up instead of walking the 418 steps up to the platform and café at the top, but I'll definitively have to try that next time! The stairs have been renovated recently, so it seems like a nice experience.
No matter how you get there, the panoramic view over Ålesund and the islands will not disappoint you… Some city! Definitively one of the most beautiful cities in Norway, with its unique architecture and all its islands.
