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. Making an excellent destination in its own right, it is  great for a week or long weekend (using non stop flights from gatwick on Fridays and Mondays), Ålesund can be enjoyed as part of our Fjord Explorer tour or in combination with a stay in Loen on Nordfjord.

City Breaks in Bergen, Ålesund or Stavanger

Bergen, Alesund and Stavanger each offer a wealth of cultural attractions and sightseeing opportunities and can be booked as a 3, 4 or 7 night City Break on their own or as part of one of our multi-centre Fjord Tours
