The ship docks right in town--you get off the ship and are minutes away from the center of town. This is a delightful Art Nouvou city that you can easily get around. The hop on hop off bus and the "trolley tour train" are located right off the ship and are reasonable and both feature free Wi-fi. These are reasonable options if it is cold, rainy, or windy or if you just don't feel like walking. Read Less

If you don't take an excursion to view the falls and fjords, you can walk up the hill (about a mile and a half round trip) to see the Viking graves. Note that when you see piles of rocks, that's it! Also take the path along the ... Read More

A walk around town at dusk. A safe and delightful ramble through the town, next to the ships berth

We just walked round on our own but climbed to the top of the view point which was well worth it to appreciate the superb location.

The most disappointing stop on the cruise, especially as it was a public holiday and most things were closed. We decided on the Hop On - Hop Off bus trip but this was a waste of money as there is a long interval between buses (45 mins). It was very windy at the top of the main viewpoint and as the cafe was closed and we could not face a 45 minute wait we braved the 418 steps down to the town. We do not think Alesund is a very interesting place, even if it had been open so wondered why this ws on the itinerary at all. Read Less

We did the hop-on/hop-off bus which is nice. You can buy the tickets right in the port. The Alesund musuem is interesting, too. Gives a history of the city and the fire that changed it.

A visit to the Art Nouveau museum is a must. It has a time capsule depicting the great fire and rebuild of Alesund. Entry 80 Krona. A short walk from the ship berthing. Be prepared to pay for using the public toliets costing 5-10 Krona ... Read More

The weather was cold and rainy, so we spent the day on the hop along bus and at the Alesund Aquarium. Very interesting. Nice penguin exhibit. We missed seeing the downtown area of Alesund and all of the art nouveau architecture, which we learned at the end of,the day is only a very short walk from the cruise docks, very easy to get around town on your own and make up your own tour locally.

A lovely Art Deco town. You can buy a guide for 30 Norweign Krona(from the mshop - Apotekergata) which has pictures and a route covering the main buildings. I didn't think the cost of the museum was worth it, as art deco furniture/glass etc was limited and although the video of the fire was good, if you knew your history you didn't learn anything new. The town is very pleasant and there are a no. of walks Read Less

We climbed the 418 steps to Mt Aksla and the views were worth the effort. We took it slowly with frequent stops to admire the view. There were lots of seats on the way up to rest and we were glad we went there first before it was too crowded so we could take our time. We walked down the winding path through woodland and that was very pleasant. The old town was very pretty. Some of the museums and boat trips were not open for the season yet. Read Less

we rented a car from Sixty and drove to Geiranger Fjord. it was the best road trip ever! the views were spectacular and the stops were breathtaking! we had lunch in Geiranger then headed back to the cruise with an hour to spare! there wasnt any traffic because it was early morning but the way back the opposite side of the road was a little busy. we also took a ferry and that too was very empty and enjoyable!
