A group of kayakers exploring the canals in Alesund
  • Discover Ålesund from the unique perspective of a kayak

  • Explore the beautiful town and see its Art Nouveau buildings

  • Learn more about the eventful history of Ålesund

  • Hear the stories and insights of experienced, local guides

See the picturesque town of Ålesund from a completely different perspective as you glide along the waterways in a kayak, lead by certified guides with great local knowledge. 

Most of Ålesund was destroyed in 1904 when a devastating fire ravaged the town. It was then rebuilt in the fashionable style of the time, Art Nouveau. You’ll see plenty of ornate buildings dotted along the waterside as the guides tell stories about the town’s history.  

We’ll meet our guides in the city centre and get kitted out with all the necessary gear. After receiving a safety briefing, we paddle out on the water for an unforgettable tour of the town, stopping off at several points for photo opportunities.
