The fishing village of Alnes is situated on the neighboring island of Ålesund. It makes sense to come here to see a beautiful, deserted place. Not long ago the village was isolated from the rest of the island by the mountain, but now there is a tunnel.

The main attraction for the rare tourists is a lighthouse, built in 1876. It operates, hosts a museum, café and a toilet, open from 12 to 18 every day in the summer. In April, May, September and October open only on Sundays.

However, if you have enough power, comfortable shoes and water, we strongly recommend to climb the Storhornet mountain. It is not necessary to go to the top (497 meters), you can just visit a Johan Skytt stone (250 meters), which can be seen on the next photo. Wonderful views are waiting for you along the way up.

Rising to 250 meters you will see a large Alnesvatnet lake and a pointer. Continue walking along the lake to the stone.

Johan Skytt stone (Johan shooter) is the natural wonder. We have to say that the place is incredibly beautiful, but very dangerous. Stone is hanging over the abyss of 100 meters and has a width of about 1 meter, be aware of the wind.

Getting there: Bus 662 from the Ålesund, tell the driver you are going to Alnes. At the stop Ytterland (Giske), near the Airport Hotel, there will be a change to a 664 bus (with the same ticket). Sometimes bus 664 goes directly from Ålesund. See schedule here, your stops are Ålesund Rutebilst. (Ålesund) and Alnes skule (Giske). Note, that it is impossible to get here by bike due to the tunnels. Although bikes can be transported by bus.
