Islands & Fjords of Ålesund Walk

Islands & Fjords of Ålesund Walk Overview

Nestling on a cluster of granite islands against a backdrop of mountains on the northern fringes of Norway’s fjords, Ålesund promises a truly Norwegian experience amid archetypal scenery.

  • self-guided, single centre walking
  • breathtaking fjord scenery
  • stylish waterfront hotel
  • relaxed yet fantastic walks
  • local travel pass included to access walks by bus or boat

Given its proximity to the Sunnmøre Alps, whose lofty peaks reach heights of 1,700 metres, Ålesund is known as the adventure capital of the fjords, but there are some equally rewarding routes which command sublime views without involving such strenuous ascents. Combine these with boat trips along the fjords, city touring by kayak, bird watching, museum visits and discovery of the town’s emerging foodie scene, to enjoy a very varied week in what is arguably Norway’s most picturesque town.
