You’ll get to spend half of today discovering Mount Stranda, a popular viewing point within easy reach of Alesund. You’ll get picked up and taken on a short city sightseeing tour, before making your way to the mountain. This bit of the journey takes you on a ferry across the fjord, so you’ll get to snap some great photos of the surrounding peaks from the water. On arrival at Mount Stranda, you’ll ride a cable car up to the top. During the summer, goats graze on the grass, while in winter, snow turns this peak into a winter wonderland. The views from up here are outstanding, and you can see for miles across the dramatic fjords. After some free time, you’ll head back down the mountain and take the bus back to the ship.
