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.
4- Aksla Viewpoint
From the top of the city mountain Aksla there is a panoramic view of the beautiful town center, the archipelago and the Sunmøre Alps. From Aksla you can walk 418 steps down to the city park.
