Cruises from Alesund
The Norwegian Art Nouveau town of Ålesund could be taken right out of a fairy tale. If you look up as you explore the town, you will discover an abundance of imaginative ornamentation on the fronts of the buildings. Walk up the 418 steps to the top of Mount Aksla and you will be rewarded by unforgettable panoramic views. It also boasts stunning seascapes, and the high peaks of the Sunnmore Alps.
It lies nestled between two dazzling blue fjords, the first the UNESCO-protected Geirangerfjord and the Hjorundfjord. They are surrounded by majestic, snow-covered mountain peaks, wild waterfalls and breathtaking lush, green vegetation.
