Geiranger

Sunnmøre can offer some of the most spectacular fjords in our region. Geirangerfjord is the jewel in the crown of the Norwegian fjords. One of most beautiful tourist destinations in the world, which has been included on UNESCO`s list of World Heritage sites since 2005 and is considered to be among the most scenically outstanding fjord area on the planet.

Close to here, we also have Hjørundfjorden and the Sunnmøre Alps, perfect for hiking. And with it's small villages, some of them only reachable by boat.

Then we have Ålesund, also elected by National Geographic as one of the most beautiful port cities in Europe. Walk up the 418 steps to the city’s peak, Aksla, and you will be rewarded with a panoramic view you will never forget! Ålesund is perfect for a romantic escapade with your loved one. Just a 15-minute drive from Ålesund and 10 minutes from the airport, Vigra, you will find the charming fishing village of Alnes. Here you get panoramic views of the ocean and can walk through beautiful and diverse hiking terrain from the mountains to the seashore, as well as get acquainted with the picturesque Alnes Lighthouse.

Along the coast you can treat yourself to an exciting sea safari and encounter seabirds, sea eagles and seals.
