Cast away from Alesund for a three-hour sightseeing boat cruise that takes you through the mountainous surrounds of Hjorundfjord to admire its breathtaking natural beauty and learn about the local fishing culture of Borgundfjord. As you drift away from the dock in Alesund, listen along as your guide explains about the town's devastating fire of 1904 and the distinct Art Nouveau architecture that remains today. Feel the crisp air whip across your face as you glide through Hjorundfjord, one of the longest fjords in Norway, spanning 22 miles. Look around to see the sharp peaks of the Sunnmore Alps, steep rock walls plunging to the water, and dense forests bordering green valleys along the shore. You'll pass quaint villages and local farms as you travel south of Alesund and into Borgundfjord, a prominent fishing grounds where large amounts of cod are caught each winter. Then sail through the Vegsundet strait — stretching a half-mile, these placid waters deliver more awe-inspiring Norwegian scenery on the return trip back to the pier.
