Ålesund is famed for its Art Nouveau architecture resplendent with turrets, spires and beautiful ornamentation. This coastal pearl located on a cluster of islands is also an excellent starting point for excursions to some of Norway’s most spectacular sights  and cultural attractions.

The surrounding area of Sunnmøre is dotted with dramatic fjords, quaint fishing villages and craggy mountains, such as the Sunnmøre Alps, which soar up to 5,000 feet above sea level.
