Day 1: Good taste starts here
In Ålesund your home for the night will be Brosundet, located in the heart of the city center. Modern Nordic design, with soft colors and furnishings, extends from the communal living spaces into the individual rooms, creating a cosy and relaxed atmosphere throughout. From here you are free to explore Ålesund on foot or take to the water. For a short walk, head to the town park and continue up the stairs to Aksla. Stop for an iconic photo of the city at the Byrampen viewpoint. If you have some more time on your hands, head to the mountains on one of the neighboring islands. Sukkertoppen is a local favorite on Hessa Island, as is Storhornet on Godøya Island. To explore even further afield, join a wildlife sea safari. High-speed RIB boats charge across the ocean and past Runde Island, home to hundreds of thousands of seabirds, including puffins. For a slower-paced activity, kayak tours provide a new perspective on the city and are suitable for beginners. See more activities here.
Relax at the hotel with a drink at Arkivet Bar before a four-course dinner at Apotekergata No. 5. Dining at Apotekergata No 5. is to be taken on a journey through the produce of the Sunnmøre region. The set menu features seasonal highlights from the fertile valleys, alpine pastures, and roaring ocean. In true contemporary Norwegian style, each dish is deliberate and restrained, allowing technique and flavor the opportunity to shine.
