Atlantic coastal city where the fjords begin

Ålesund is a bustling port and fascinating seaside town facing the Atlantic Ocean at the entrance to a region of outstanding natural beauty and some of Norway’s most dramatic fjords. The town was recently voted the most beautiful in Norway and was totally rebuilt in Art Nouveau style, with a myriad of turrets, spires and medieval ornaments, after a devastating fire in 1904. In addition to its many museums and impressive ocean aquarium there is a variety of interesting day trips to the small islands and skerries of local fishing communities dating back to the Viking era, plus round trips to the famous Geirangerfjord and Sunnmøre Alps. Inghams guests also receive a free guide tour of the city as part of their stay (Wednesday & Saturday 16 Jun - 16 Aug incl.) or city guide booklet (16 May - 15 Jun incl. & 17 Aug - end of season).
