Details about this scheduled guided day tour:

Ålesund - Aspøya - Storhaugen - City Center - Nørvøya - Ålesund

Our adventure begins at the pier, where our tour bus awaits us. From here, we embark on a captivating journey, promising to unveil the finest aspects of this picturesque Norwegian city. As we set off, you’ll be treated to breathtaking panoramic views of Ålesund’s distinctive architecture, combining Art Nouveau and Nordic design in a charming blend.

Ålesund’s story is inseparable from the devastating fire of 1904. This inferno transformed the city, reducing it to ashes. But out of the ashes, Ålesund rose anew, blossoming into a haven of Art Nouveau architecture. We’ll share how this tragic event became the catalyst for the city’s distinctive aesthetic.

The heart of our journey is the Storhaugen viewpoint, where we’ll make a brief stop. Here, high above the city, you’ll be captivated by the sweeping vistas of Ålesund, its surrounding islands, and the beautiful Sunnmøre Alps. The perfect spot for snapping photos, it’s also a moment to absorb the natural beauty and tranquility that define this region.

Back on the bus, we continue our tour, passing through vibrant streets lined with colorful buildings and ornate facades. While we drive through the heart of the city, you’ll see many charming buildings with various designs and a lovely waterfront. The Brosundet Canal is a prominent cultural and visual attraction, a testament to Ålesund’s maritime heritage.

The tour concludes back at the pier, leaving you with a deep appreciation for Ålesund’s unique charm. Our panorama tour provides a unique opportunity to learn about the city’s history and appreciate its architectural beauty. So, hop aboard and let Ålesund’s past and present enchant you as we explore the charming streets, canals, and viewpoints that make this coastal gem so special.
