The town is located spectacularly on a series of small islands, where the fjords and mountains meet the ocean. Enjoy a charming atmosphere and delve into exciting history and vibrant culture.

Following a devastating fire in 1904 the city was rebuilt in Art Nouveau style, giving Ålesund the characteristic and unique look for which it has earned reknown as one of the most beautiful port towns in the world. Ålesund is a great starting point from which to explore the fjords and panoramic Sunnmøre Alps.

The area enjoys a temperate oceanic climate. The weather is extremely mild for the latitude and inland areas at similar parallels see much hotter summers and colder winters. Ålesund itself is sheltered and summers are pleasantly warm with a daily mean temperature of around 14 degrees in July and August.
