  • 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, led by certified guides with great local knowledge.

Most of Ålesund was destroyed in 1904 when a devastating fire ravaged the town. The entire town was rebuilt in the art nouveau style, which was fashionable at the time. You’ll see plenty of ornate buildings dotted along the waterside as guides tell stories about the town’s history.

We’ll meet our guides in the city center, who will provide us 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.
