Alnes Lighthouse under the Northern Lights
  • See the stunning ocean view from Alnes Lighthouse

  • Discover the amazing Viking history of Giske and Godøy islands

  • Take in the panoramic scenery from Mount Aksla viewpoint and enjoy some freshly baked lefse

We’ll travel by bus to the island of Giske, known as the ‘Saga Island.’ Birthplace of the Viking Chieftain Rollo, ancestor of William the Conqueror, this island has been inhabited since the Bronze Age. 

You’ll also pass the 12th-century white marble church that was built by the island’s ruling family for their own use, before continuing to the island of Godøy. 

Here, we drive through the fishing village of Alnes up to Alnes Lighthouse. Built-in 1876, it is a protected relic of Norwegian culture and offers great views of the coastline for those that climb to the top.

Back in the town of Ålesund, we make one last stop at Mount Aksla to enjoy the breathtaking vista of the town, the surrounding archipelago, and the fjord.
