Out and about nearby

Ålesund is a gateway town to the fjords and also to many activities on land and water. The town itself is known for its Art Nouveau architecture as it was rebuilt after a fire in 1904 which destroyed the old town. Today the cobbled streets are lined with appealing houses and buildings decorated individually with towers, turrets and ornaments. The historic fish warehouses line the harbour of Brosundet but today house hotels, shops and galleries. The town has an Art Nouveau centre and Art Museum KUBE. For a panoramic view over the town and coastline climb the 418 steps to the Aksla viewpoint. Take a city tour on foot in the footsteps of Viking Rollo or an Ålesund city walk without the Viking guiding you. The Sunnmøre region is renowned for its spectacular mountain scenery and scenic roads. By car you can visit Trollstigen, Ålesund and Geiranger and explore the scenic national routes, finding glaciers, secluded fjords, remote villages and authentic farms.

Sports nearby

Hiking, kayaking, biking, fishing, wildlife safari by boat (puffins, seals). Winter skiing (cross-country and downhill) and snowshoe walking.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for organising our honeymoon at such short notice. We would have been completely stuck without the help you gave us and it enabled us to have a lovely time away. We particularly loved the Capelounge and will have to consider returning there at some point.

Stave churches, beautifully preserved in wood, dating from Viking times, for example at Borgund, Lom, Ringebu and Urnes. Viking ships and artefacts, burial mounds and trinkets in museums throughout the country. The red, wooden houses perched stilts over the sea on the Lofoten Islands. The modern architecture of Oslo. Picking wild blueberries, sampling aquavit made from potatoes and caraway, and tasting reindeer steak with cranberries. The charm of Oslofjorden with its pretty, arty village and towns, harbours with sailing boats, islands offshore and beaches. Hike over the Jotunheimen and relish the natural landscape of this stunning National Park.

Gastronomy of Norway

Norway’s gastronomy is a clear reflection of its land and sea. From the land come reindeer, venison, lamb, cured meats and potatoes of all types: boiled, roasted and fried. From the freshwater lakes and streams come salmon served grilled and smoked, and freshwater fish. Sea fish is a vast array of cod, haddock, shrimps, mackerel, fish soup, fish balls, salt cod. From the orchards particularly around the Hardangerfjord come apples, cherries and plums as well as berries of all sorts including blueberries, cranberries, bilberries and, a great delicacy, cloudberries. Cheeses include Jarlsberg and brown cheese. Coffee is almost certainly the national drink, followed by beer, of which there are all sorts of craft beers brewed locally, and Aquavit is the national spirit made from potatoes and caraway.
