Discover Alesund by Private Van with Optional Guide
- GoBe an explorer: Climb the steps (or ride in comfort) up to Fjellstua Terrace for panoramic city views from Mount Aksla. Wander among Viking ships and historic grass-roofed cabins at open-air Sunmore Museum. Spot abandoned Nazi bunkers in the Tueneset hills, and visit a 150-year-old lighthouse high atop Godoy Island. See a penguin-feeding and the million-gallon Great Atlantic tank at the aquarium. Sample the town cafes, and visit the Art Nouveau Center to learn about Alesund's remarkable rebuilding after fire engulfed the entire city in 1904. Go for scenic island drives in almost any direction.
- Get out of town: Alesund and its immediate environs could keep you visually stimulated for days. Yet even more wonder awaits those who wander further afield. With 48 hours' notice, GoBe can arrange an extended road trip to places like Runde Island, where thousands of puffin and other seabirds cavort on the cliffs. Or along Geirangerfjord, a UNESCO-listed wonderland, with the added bonus of a hairpin-twisting climb up to Ornesvingen observation deck – where the views are totally beyond words.
Please meet in the lobby of your downtown-area hotel or a nearby central location. Let us know the name of your hotel/preferred meeting location when you reserve this tour so we know where to meet you. Your driver waits with a GoBe sign with your name.
Dress for the weather with flat, comfortable shoes for walking and don't forget your sunscreen and bottled water. Bring local currency for optional food and souvenir purchases and your photo ID. Have some specific ideas in mind or just want a general overview of the city? Discuss your wishes for the day's itinerary with your driver. Or let your driver make recommendations. Not sure where you want to go? Our Concierge Service can assist you with a custom-designed itinerary. We've got your ride, now set out and explore.
Get out and explore or enjoy the city panorama from the comfort of your vehicle. Folding wheelchairs can accompany you; however, the vehicle is not wheelchair lift equipped. Bring a companion to offer any assistance entering or exiting the vehicle.
