Itinerary
Day 1 Alesund
Self transfer to your centrally located hotel. Remainder of the day is at leisure to explore this lovely Art Nouveau city. It is easy to become fascinated with Alesund. The town is young at heart, but with an unusually dramatic story to tell. One stormy night a hundred years ago, the whole town center burned to the ground. Only a few houses survived the devastation in 1904, and ten thousand people were made homeless. A new town rose phoenix-like from the ashes, in the distinctive Art Nouveau style with myriad turrets, spires and beautiful ornamentation, like something from a fairytale. Today, the town is a modern, pulsating city. Overnight Hotel Waterfront or similar.

From there across the mountain pass to the industrial town of Stranda. From there to the village of Hellesylt where the fiord cruise to Geiranger starts. Cruise the Geirangerfiord with a guide service in four languages. You will see some small farms high above the fiord and be told the story of how people lived there in bygone days.
