Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

One of Norway’s listed ‘Historic Hotels’, the Hotel Brosundet enjoys an excellent location right on the quayside overlooking the old fishing port. With the hotel’s walls extending directly into the waters of Brosundet canal, enjoy a stay right on the quayside! Ålesund centre is close by and when you’re ready to explore, you'll discover that a selection of restaurants and shops are just a stone’s throw away, whilst the main part of the harbour is a pleasant eight-minute walk away.

The attractively-furnished hotel is located inside an old warehouse that has been converted into a hotel - many of the original beams remain exposed. The lobby area and restaurant have recently been renovated to give off a modern and warm Nordic feel. The Brosundet offers a great continental breakfast and views over the canal, which is a great way to start your day.

Visit the hotel’s Apotekergata No.5 restaurant for the catch of the day for dinner or enjoy a drink in the Arkivet Bar which boasts an extensive wine cellar. There is also a well-equipped fitness suite and a relaxation area where guests can wind-down.

Ålesund is a bustling port and fascinating seaside town. It faces the Atlantic Ocean and is the entrance to some of Norway's most dramatic fjords and areas of outstanding natural beauty. Due to its position, it enjoys more days of sunshine throughout the year than areas deeper into the fjords. The town is built in an Art Nouveau style, with lots of towers, spires and medieval ornaments that are still there today. There are many many museums and a variety of interesting day trips to the surrounding islands and skerries of local fishing communities dating back to the Viking era. 

Making an excellent destination in its own right, it is great for a week or long weekend Ålesund can also be enjoyed as part of a multi-centre holiday. 

Fjord Explorer will travel from Bergen, through the fjord towns of Balestrand and Loen before the final destination of Ålesund.

Glaciers & Coast will split your holiday in two by combining Ålesund with Loen.
