Get to know the beautiful town of Ålesund under your own steam and enjoy a tasty treat along the way.

What will you do with time to explore at your leisure? Take a stroll by the handsome harbour area of Brosundet and watch the fishermen selling freshly caught shrimp from their boats? Buy yourself a ticket for the Atlantic Sea Park – one of Europe’s largest saltwater aquariums – or perhaps walk up to the Mount Aksla viewpoint for stunning vistas of the archipelago, the town centre and the distant Sunnmøre Alps?

If you’re intrigued by the unique architecture for which Ålesund is famous, use your free pass to visit the Art Nouveau Centre. Here you can admire fascinating exhibits and find out more about how the town was rebuilt following the devastating fire of 1904. And when you’re ready for a rest, swap your voucher for an energising coffee and a sweet cinnamon bun at the Green Garden Café – a contemporary little haven in the chic Hotel 1904.
