About the trip - history and culture
Welcome to the heart of beautiful Norwegian nature. With the sea on all sides, nicely located and surrounded by mountains we find beautiful Ålesund - the art nouveau town, which is like taken from a fairy tale book.
In the first stop we see Ålesund town from the top of the mountain Aksla, with panoramic views of the town, surrounded by sea and mountains. Driving through the streets of Ålesund you will see the old houses that survived the city fire in 1904, and the new ones that were rebuilt in art nouveau style.
From Ålesund, there are 3 underwater tunnels to Alnes and Alnes lighthouse. An adventure journey in reality, an unique experience even for Norwegians. On this tour you will see old farms, narrow roads, mountains with snowcapped peak and it is simply unforgettable. We take short stop to admire beautiful Alnes before we go to Alnes lighthouse
At Alnes lighthouse you can go up to the lighthouse and experience a 360 degree panoramic view. Panorama windows facing the great sea are equally fascinating in all kinds of weather from storms to sunlight. The most beautiful sunsets are experienced here. The lighthouse has fully operated for boats and ships on Alnes since 1853.
After visiting Alnes, the tour continues back to Ålesund. But first there is a stop at Giske - the historical viking island. Here we find Giske Church that was built in 1130. This church is the only one in Norway that is built in marble and is still in use.
