The fjords

Trip 1Hjørundfjorden

Many visitors rank the beautiful Hjørundfjord higher than the Geirangerfjord. The route visits the small communities Trandal, Urke /Øye and Sæbø. On this trip, a lunch at the legendary Union Hotel Øye is highly recommended. We can also arrange for a guided road trip through the incredible Norangsdalen.

Net sailing time from Ålesund/Vigra return: 2 hours


Trip 2 Geirangerfjorden

The unique Geirangerfjord is included on UNESCO’s world heritage list and one of Norway’s most visited placed. You get to see the magnificent waterfalls and the amazing farms along the fjord up close. We can also bring a local guide to take you and your guests the steep path up to the farm Skageflå.

Geiranger is the obvious place to go ashore. We would be glad to arrange your lunch and a guided tour to see the Vesterås farm, and the viewpoints Flydalsjuvet and Dalsnibba.

The islands

Trip 3 Finnøy and Ona

This tour takes you right out to sea north of Ålesund. On Finnøy there is a modern engines factory, Finnøy Havstuer with restaurant and accommodation, and an spectacular aquapark.

The old fishing village and trading post Ona provides unique experiences. Today Ona is inhabited by handicraft artists and some fishermen, but go for a walk between the houses and up to the lighthouse. If you listen carefully, you might hear fishermen's shouts and the sound of running children's feet.

Net sailing time from Ålesund/Vigra return: 3 hours


Trip  4 Runde and Fosnavåg

The island Runde is south of Ålesund, hosting some 500,000 nesting birds from February to August.  We go outside the island, so you can contemplate the teeming bird life. We can also arrange for a hike with a guide up the mountain. It's an incredible feeling to look down on birds.

The tour continues to the small town of Fosnavåg, from where much of the Norwegian fishing and offshore fleets are controlled.  Fosnavåg has a great new water park, for those who want a dip - whatever the weather and season.

Net sailing time from Ålesund/Vigra return: 3 hours
