Alesund is a beautiful Norwegian town surrounded by spectacular natural scenery in every direction. Head to the top of Mount Aksla and get your bearings as you soak up the vistas of the mountains that just wait to be explored. Stroll through the city - famous for its Art Nouveau architecture - and you will discover hundreds of buildings that highlight this style. Day tours, including cruises on Viking ships, take in picturesque villages and magnificent fjords, so there is heaps to do and see!
