Uncover the rich, colourful history behind the Viking Saga Islands of Giske and Godøy. 

These islands were the centre of power during the Viking Age, as they were home to local kings and Viking chieftains. Once only reachable by boat, today you can enjoy a leisurely drive to them both.

The Giske Bridge will take you to Giske, birthplace of the legendary Viking chieftain, Rollo, and home of the remarkable 12th century Giske Church. 

Travelling through one of the longest sub-sea tunnel connections in the world, you’ll arrive in Godøy. The ocean views from the lighthouse in picturesque Alnes are exceptional.

As you return to the city, you’ll stop at Mount Aksla, Alesund’s most impressive viewpoint, where you can savour the magnificent views, along with Norwegian cakes and coffee and tea.
