This is not to be confused with the steps in Alesund. This is a hike about 2 hours away from Alesund. You'll want to go to Urke. We were in Volda so we drove to Saebo and then took a ferry over to Urke. This...More
amazing hike!!!! we do hike when we are on holidays but are not superwell trained hikers. it took us 3 hours to get all the way to the top, and the last part was steep and exposed and a bit scary but still doable!! I...More
There are reviews here from the stair climb in Alesund. Not sure what the deal is. But Mt. Saksa is in Urke, across the fjord from Saebo. It is about 4 to 6 hours roundtrip depending on how long you stay at the top. We...More
Everyone seems to know in advance that there will be 418 steps to climb to reach the top....and the view at the top is worth it! Just take your time, rest as often as needed, and use the handrails for support. No worries, it is...More
Not an easy hike for someone completely out of shape but there's also plenty of rest stops to just enjoy the views as you head up. I think the more interesting views are not even the ones at the very top.
From the town you can see the stairs...all 418 steps. You get to them by walking through this really nice park. It is steep if you are afraid of heights...but worth the hike up and it was very crowded. But you can take your time...More
We were told it was a must do and it was. Both of us are a little advanced in age and made it easily, but found the icy steps a little challenging. Would be brilliant in summer. Great view of the city and surrounds. Beware...More

Hi! I'm sorry, I can't answer your question directly from personal experience, but in researching it I came across a New York Times article that might prove helpful! It is entitled "Chasing Summer in Norway," by Gabriel Sherman, and written June 19, 2005. It contains lots of hut-to-hut hiking facts and links for Norway. Just might provide you with what you need to further research. I completed the TMB (111 mile Tour du Mont Blanc) a couple years ago, so I know well how enjoyable a hut-to-hut experience can be. I hope that you will enjoy your Norway hiking, no matter how you do the overnights!
