Ålesund Heritage Walk
USD45 per person
Meander through the heart of charming Ålesund and revel in its unique art nouveau style.
As you stroll around this unique Norwegian town, surrounded by colourful buildings, forests of spires and turrets, and elaborate façades embellished with dragons, flowers, and human forms, you’ll be forgiven for thinking you’re in a fairy tale.
Following a devastating fire in 1904 the town was entirely rebuilt in art nouveau style, and your guide will provide an interesting commentary about the town, and its strong maritime traditions.
In the harbour area of Brosundet you’ll see Ålesund’s famous Jugend-style houses, and witness wonderful views from the foot of Mount Aksla. Then return to your ship or to continue up Mount Aksla independently, for more spectacular views.
