  Port Map

Charming Alesund is among the most picturesque fishing ports in Norway. It lies at the mouth of Stor Fjord and is actually set on two islands that are connected by bridges. Cruise ships dock near the centre of the city so shopping and exploration can be done on foot. Tourists can take the 400 steps up to Kniven Overlook on Mt Aksla for a spectacular panoramic view of the bay, surrounding offshore islands and mountains. The town was rebuilt with stone instead of wood as a result of a 1904 fire. The city is rich in delightful art nouveau architecture of turrets, towers and medieval romantic facades.

Further out is outdoor Sunnmore Museum where guests can see a collection of boats and traditional farmhouses and the Medieval Museum which features a recreation of 10th century village. The Atlantic Ocean Marine Park is also on the outskirts with massive seascape tanks created into the coastline. Cruisers can also visit the Giske islands (burial mounds) and Godoy (lighthouse).

Alesund cruise ship terminal

Alesund is a starting point for touring the hills of Sunnmore region, Norang valley, Oye glaciers and Runde island. The city dates from 9th century when Rollo (Rolf) Ganger built a castle nearby, but did not become a town until 1848.
