106 Alesund Cruise Reviews

We only made a walk through the city near the port to look a the art nouveau buildings. It was early in the morning, a very good time for such city walks.

Beautiful town. We decided to walk up the steps to the top which overlooks the town and the view was incredible. There was a cafe at the top but you had to pay to get in so we didn’t bother. After we went down we went to see “the house that didn’t burn” We assumed we would just take a photo and then leave but it’s actually been turned into a museum which is free. We had a free tour round and listened to the interesting stories. There is a lovely cafe inside so we stayed for a coffee and cake. We had dry weather this day so we had a walk around the harbour area Read Less

There is a local company at the dock that will sell your a cruise up the local fjord at a reasonable price.

With the ship docked in town, everything in town is close. And, the first place to visit is the Tourist Cinema located inside a corner souvenir shop, at Lorkenesgata 1. It’s literally across the street from the cruise port. The film takes the visitor on a journey of history, and provides a bird’s eye view of the spectacular fjords. The show lasts 17 minutes. Also recommended is the HOHO bus, which travels to all the major attractions both in and out of the City. The entire tour takes about 80 minutes. The Aksla viewpoint, as well as the aquarium, are worth a Hop-Off. It is recommended that visitors use their credit card for the HOHO bus. Not only is it the best exchange rate, there’s a 10% discount on the price of the tour. Read Less

We loved this town. It burned near the beginning of the 20th century. It was rebuilt in the Art Nouveau style. It is a wonderful town for strolling. The Art Nouveau and Modern Art Museums are really good. The Modern Art Museum concentrated on people's, the artists', relationship to the sea. Then we took a cab to the overlook for a wonderful view.

Jumped on the little train here and went up to the view point over looking the town which gives great views and good value to money. Nice town to wonder around

The next stop was another small city, Alesund. It was a lovely little place with a really nice harbour vibe to it. We immediately went for a little explore before booking with local adventure company 62 degrees nord, onto a RIB sea safari at 10am. It would last two hours; we'd don weather protective suits and life-jackets, and head out on a Rigid Inflatable Boat, speeding across the water passed beautiful islands and scenery to see grey seals and a lot of wild sea birds, and even three white-tailed fish eagles. It was a lovely sunny day in Alesund and the experience on the RIB was awesome. It was super-quick and we had a lovely guide telling us about the wildlife. In the afternoon we grabbed a local taxi which took us to the nearby Aquarium/small zoo. The focus was of course on marine life, but it didn't just had fish, crabs etc, they also had Humboldt penguins, otters and seals, in a really unique outdoor setting with amazing views out across the sea and nearby islands. It didn't cost a lot and was worth seeing for an hour or two. Read Less
