Discover the beauties of Ålesund’s Archipelago
This Ålesund tour highlights both place and activity; the whole experience comes together when elements of intimate local knowledge combine with a professional adventure trip designer.
The glistening waterways surrounding Ålesund entice and adventure beckons! Ålesund is a fairytale setting of green grassy parks, lush leafy hillsides, Art Nouveau facades with torrents and sexy curves, historical maritime landmarks, bustling marinas with gentle waves lapping the rocky shores. Here we slip into a sea kayak and glide along glistening waterways that give way to specular fjords dotted with a plethora of islands.
We reach a secluded campsite where a delicious supper of local delicacies prepared with natural ingredients is served in the great outdoors. A crackling fire, good company, and warming night-cap rounds off the evening before retiring to a cozy tent for a well-deserved rest. The smell of fresh-brewed coffee draws you from your tent and a wholesome breakfast energizes, pushing-off, sea kayaks aimed down the fjord to our inevitable entry back into urbanization and the beautiful Art Nouveau architecture.
An intricate archipelago that boasts untold secrets, a hidden campsite known only to an exclusive few, the eminent ingredients for micro-adventure. A visit to Ålesund is not complete without exploring the archipelago the city is built on! So make sure you save some time during your visit for KMT’s micro-tour (24 hours), paddle a sea kayak and camp out in the archipelago.
