Get to know the gorgeous town of Alesund whose island-setting is something of a heart-stealer. The largest town on the Northwest coast, it’s spread across several islands with the spectacular Sunnmore Alps as the backdrop and is packed with Art Nouveau-style houses. Visit the Sunnmore Open-Air Museum, which finds a home in the old trading centre of Borgund. It’s the ideal place to learn about local shipbuilding traditions. Afterwards, drive to Mount Aksla to feast your eyes on stellar views over the town and its surroundings. Then it’s time to make your way through the centre of town as you return to your ship.
Although this is a moderate walking tour, you'll need to wear sensible shoes.
- SUITABILITY Moderate physical activity.
