    Geiranger Fjord und Alesund

    August 18, 2019 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Just a short hike up to one of the surrounding hills of the beautiful geiranger fjord you will be rewarded with a picturesque landscape.
    Alesund, a small town on an headland at the westcoast is nice to see from a bird's eye view.

    Ålesund

    March 6, 2019 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 1 °C

    Today the Nordnorge took us to visit the city of Ålesund - our first long stop on the Norwegian coast heading north. We left the rain behind in Bergen and we were blessed with a dry, cool day and an amazing sky. We climbed to the top of Mount Aksla (a steep but short one) to look far over the city and into the distance. A great cardio workout with amazing views as the reward. A quick stroll through the quiet city and it was back on board. We’ve had good sailing weather to date with some rolling around when the ship has been out in more open water but this is limited and easy enough to cope with.Read more

    Alesund - Land of the Trolls

    September 6, 2017 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Off the boat all day today on a tour which took in Borgundfjord, the valley of Validal, the powerful Gudbrandsjuvet Gorge and then down the 11 hairpin bends of ' Trolls Path - the Trollstigen mountain road. We also saw the waterfall at Stigrora and the Trolls Wall (3280 feet vertical mountain face) at Andalsnes.
    The weather could have been kinder at the start but the rain stopped and we had dry coach stops until the final one where the Wall was lost to low level cloud. Overall, a great day out.
    We were back on board for another delicious dinner and ended the day watching another show from the entertainment team who range from very good to room for improvement!

    Ålesund

    July 4, 2019 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    We picked up a hire car at Ålusund airport and once again we were given a Toyota hybrid, this time a C-HR.
    We had a bit of a walk around Ålesund, had very good fish and chips at an outdoor place for dinner, then a glass of wine and dessert (very good chocolate cake with licorice ice-cream) at a nearby restaurant.Read more

    Ålesund

    December 30, 2019 in Norway ⋅ 🌧 6 °C

    Der Aussichtspunkt Fjellstua bieten einen wunderbaren Blick über die Stadt und die umliegenden Inseln. Als kleine Zugabe sind schneebedeckte Berge mit ihren Wasserfällen allgegenwärtig.

    Die 5 Stunden Tageslicht wollen hier im Norden gut ausgenutzt sein. Leider lassen der Dauerregen und heftige Winde nicht all zu viel Aktivitäten zu.Read more

    Alesund, Norway

    June 22, 2018 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    Ålesund is known as the Venice of Norway. Our tour gave us a view of ancient and modern Alesund. After a major fire in 1904, the city was rebuilt in the Art Nouveau period.
    We traveled to the city mountain of Mt. Aksla where we had incredible views of the archipelago, town center and Sunnmore Alps.
    Along the way we saw ladders on the roofs of homes leading to the chimney. Heat is critical in Norway so chimney sweeps need access for maintenance.

    First Port : Alesund

    January 5, 2018 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 0 °C

    This morning we hit open sea and as there was a big swell a few people were not very well. The cruise along the Norwegian Coast is different to a River Cruise, not much greenery, vineyards or old houses, just scenic icy mountains. After lunch we docked in Alesund where we walked around for a while as we only docked for a few hours before heading back to the ship. Once back on ship there was a tasting of cured meat (a local delicacy) on the top deck. This was followed by a short documentary film about the Northern Lights. Fingers are still crossed that we see them in the next few days. As I write this we are just having a glass of wine while we wait for our dinner seating.Read more
