Join a fun and fascinating exploration of beautiful Ålesund and discover its Viking past.

Meet your costumed guides and follow them into town to hear about Rollo, the famous Viking chieftain, and life in the Middle Ages. Take in the stories that have been told in local folklore for over a thousand years and stop to admire various landmarks along the way. 

You’ll get an insight into the Vikings’ legal system, religion and Rollo’s journey from being the outlaw son of the local Earl to becoming an ancestor of current European Royalty. Pause to photograph the bronze statue of the man himself, which looks towards the island of Giske where he lived, and step aboard a replica of a longship. Complete your tour with a taste of the kinds of food that sustained Vikings during long voyages.
