The Sunnmøre alps
The Sunnmøre alps is famous for its alpine and jagged peaks and stunning fjord views. The mountains peak at around 1,500 m and, when the conditions are right, we have the opportunities to ski all the way down to the fjord. Stranda makes a great starting place for ski touring in Norway, and is only an hour drive from Ålesund, Ørsta/Volda, Geiranger, Stryn, Stordal, Hjørundfjord and Hornindal.
History about the area Many first ascents in the area were made by famous British mountaineers like William Cecil Slingsby and Charles Watson Patchell in the early 1900s. They came back year after year and have left a lasting mark on the area. Patchell also set up Patchell-hut at the foot of Mt Slogen, whereas Slingsby established his own climbing route(Slingsby-route) up from Villa Norangdal to the top of Mt Kvitegga.
