From Giske there is an underwater tunnel to the island Godøy . The name Godøy actually means "Gods Island " and refers to the Viking Kings who once lived here . Today you my find the fisheryvillage Alnes interesting . Seahouses and boats to rent for tourists and very good fishing possibilities.
The island Giske is a flat sandy island , and you my find several nice beaches there.
Also the island has a very old and beautiful stone church which is worth visiting.
Bridge from Valderøy to Giske
From Ålesund there is a underwater tunnel to the island Valderøy , Valderøy is connected to the island Vigra , were you will find the local airport , good connections to most destinations in Norway. From Valderøy there is a bridge to the island Giske and from Giske to the island Godøya.
In Sykkylven county , near Ålesund , you will find this mountain called Trollkirka or in English The Troll Church. It is best seen if you are driving from Stranda towards Ålesund through Sykkylven. Everyone who have been travelling in Norway have probably heard the stories about the Norwegian Troll , scaring at night , but as they all burst and die when sunlight hits them , not dangerous in daylight. The story about theese one`s are: One Sunday morning Papa Troll Mama Troll and Baby Troll where on their way to Church. Baby Troll where always playing around and always careless about watching the time , and even if papa troll told him several times to hurry up , they were caught by sunlight , and because of this they were all turned into stone , even the church . Well this is the story like my father told me when I were a little kid .
