Get ready for some especially exciting drives today! From Geiranger, drive up the steep and winding Ørnevegen, known as “the Eagle Road”, to Eidsdal, where you will take a short ferry ride to Linge. If you enjoy twists and turns, you will be very impressed with the drive up Trollstigen, “the Troll Ladder”, which is one of the most visited attractions in Norway.
After passing towering mountains along the drive, you will reach Ålesund, a captivating city that was almost completely destroyed and rebuilt after a great fire in 1904. Therefore, it looks very different from any other Norwegian town with its Art Nouveau architecture. The myriad of turrets, spires and beautiful ornamentation give the town its distinctive character, like something out of a fairytale. Here you also have the opportunity to visit the Atlantic Sea Park and enjoy stunning views from Fjellstuen.
Spend the night in Ålesund.
