    Relax and enjoy the day in Ålesund, a fishing and ferry town with rich history. The town was rebuilt in 1904 after a large fire destroyed a part of the town, and is therefore distinctively different from any other Norwegian town, with its beautiful Art Nouveau architecture. The myriad of turrets, spires and beautiful ornamentation give the town its distinctive character, which is like something from a fairytale. Here you have the opportunity to visit the Atlantic Sea Park and enjoy stunning views over the town from the Fjellstua viewpoint.
