Why Go on Norwegian Vacations to Alesund

Alesund is a beautiful Scandinavian town tucked away between Norway's magnificent fjords. It was voted as the most beautiful town in the country by the Norwegian people and often called the Adventure Capital of the Fjords.

The city is spread over several islands, with the spectacular Sunnmøre Mountains as a background. Although the town is quite young it has an unusually dramatic story to tell.

On, January 1904 a devastating fire raged through the streets of Alesund. During 16 hours, the whole center of the town burned to the ground and only 230 houses escaped destruction, leaving thousands of people homeless. The town was rebuilt in three years, in 1907 after remarkable contributions of its residents.

Alesund revived in the unique Art Nouveau style and is a member of "Rèseau Art Nouveau Network", a European network of Art Nouveau cities. Therefore, make sure to include a walk to see the most famous buildings and streets during your Alesund tour.

One of the great ways to immerse yourself in the beauty of the city is to treat yourself to Alesund sightseeing from water. As such, there are numerous boat rides and tours on offer throughout the year.

The town is known today both nationally and internationally for its outstanding architecture that everyone should see for themselves.
