1- Departure: Ålesund Pier

The Art nouveau town of Ålesund is a perfect starting point for excursions in the beautiful surroundings. It is the largest city in the province of Møre og Romsdal and it has a unique setting across several islands streching out into the Atlantic Ocean. Destroyed in 1904 by a devastating fire it is now noted for its concentration of Art Nouveau style.

2- Giske Church

The famous Giske Church is Sunnmøre’s oldest church and one of Norway’s cultural heritage treasures. In fact the church was originally built as a private chapel for the powerful Giske Family in the 1100s.

3- Alnes Lighthouse

Alnes Lighthouse is one of the best highlights the Ålesund area can offer. The view is majestic, and the beaches and waves have turned the destination into a surfer’s paradise. Entrance fee to the lighthouse is included in the tour ticket.
