Ålesund

Get ready to explore some of Norway’s most famous natural and cultural attractions. Ålesund’s beautiful Art Nouveau architecture is widely known. A myriad of fjords, island gems, and mountains on Sunnmøre are waiting to excite you. The great variation of experiences gives you the freedom to choose exactly the holiday experience you are looking for – all year round.

Adventure Capital of the Fjords

The characteristic town of Ålesund

Beautiful Ålesund is located in the far north of the western fjord landscape and includes several islands stretching out into the Atlantic Ocean, with the Sunnmøre Alps as a spectacular backdrop.

Join a bike ride between the pointed buildings or kayaking in Brosundet. The architecture is characterized by a very fascinating history and an originally defined construction plan. Large parts of Ålesund burned down in 1904, and this resulted in the decision to build the new houses in Art Nouveau style, which characterized much of the European architecture around the turn of the century. No other town in Norway has as many spires and turrets as Ålesund, let alone the facades’ detailed ornaments and figures.

If you want to enjoy a fantastic view of the town, you will find a road to the viewpoint on top of the mountain Aksla via the town centre. You can choose to walk the 418 stairs up from Byparken or make the turn around Aksla and up via electric bike. If you ask us, the last option is probably our favourite!
