They had 6 ships in port and everything was too crowded for size of town. We took Hop on Hop Off and it was terrible because there were so many busses at the view point that we sat on the bus not lmoving for more than an hour. Don't ... Read More

We were going to take the hop on hop off bus but were glad we changed our mind. We heard from others that they were stranded at distant stops because the bus was full and no one was willing to get off. One couple were stuck an hour and a half. We did see some empty seats late in the day but they obviously sold too many tickets. We spent the morning in the Art nouveau museum and adjoining art gallery. The town had burnt down in about 1910 and had been rebuilt in Art Nouveau style which is explained in the museum. We walked the streets looking at the buildings and passed the cathedral which was closed. We found a trendy coffee bar overlooking the harbour and found tea or coffee are affordable compared to alcohol!! Read Less

We climbed up 417 steps to the Fjellstua Viewpoint, it was a bit windy so it was a tricky climb , I literally was nearly blown over but amazing views at the top. We also visited the little Alesund museum which I thought was interesting.

Got on the road train from right outside the port, it was excellent. A good tour that takes you to the top of the mountain with fantastic views, costs less than £20 per person, lasting about 1 and a 1/4 hours, with a fifteen minute stop ... Read More

We climbed the 418 steps to the fjellstua viewing point...and what a view!the town itself is so beautiful, architecture and reflection in the water was something to behold.

A short walk from the ship is the Art Nouveau region of Alesund. Wander and enjoy the delights of this picturesque town.

Our cruise stopped in Alesund then continued down a fjord to Urke, from where several excursions began. While one of my sisters stayed on the ship to Urke and then took an excusion (hike to Shieling) that she said was fantastic (her pictures showed it too), the rest of us got off in Alesund at 8:45 am and stayed until the ship returned and left Alesund at 7 pm. In Alesund, we shopped, ate, climbed Mt. Aksla, and another sister and I took a guided kayak trip. This worked for us and we appreciated the opportunity to have our independent day in Alesund.

This was our fourth time here, so went on our own. Highly recommended is the Path of the Trolls from a previous visit.
