First, visit Alesund’s attractive setting, built on three islands with the spectacular Sunnmore Alps in the background. Pass by Borgundfjord, with charming suburbs and well kept gardens. Head over to the municipality of Stordal, famous for its furniture factories, a very important export item in this region. Reach the fertile valley of Valldal, where strawberry cultivation is common and ascend up the valley to Trollstigen, reaching 850 meters above sea level. Start the descent down the Trolls' Path with its daring hairpin bends. Down in the valley, make a photo stop to take in the lovely waterfall called Stigfossen waterfall cascading down the mountainside.
Next, detour up to Trollveggen where you’ll find the Troll Wall with the highest perpendicular rock face in Europe. Climbers from all parts of the world come to visit this 1,000 meter tall wall to try out the various routes to the top. Then, pass by Romsdalsfjord with its many small villages known for its ship and boat building. Before returning to your ship, cross over the Orskog Mountain Plateau, a popular skiing area for the people of Alesund.
