What You Can Expect

Alesund Shore Excursion: City Sightseeing Hop-On Hop-Off Tour

Enjoy a comprehensive view of Alesund on your Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Leave your cruise ship behind at the Ålesund port, and head into town for your hop-on hop-off tour by City Sightseeing bus. Show your voucher to the driver, and then explore the city from the comfort of your double-decker bus. Plug in your headset to hear audio narration about the sights, and gaze out at the Sunnmøre Alps, flanked by the Norwegian fjords. 

Your pass is valid for a total of 24 hours, so use the service as you wish to hop on or off wherever you like. Use it to visit attractions such as Ålesund Church, the Art Nouveau Center, the Sunnmøre Museum and more; or disembark to stretch your legs on a seafront stroll and admire the city’s art nouveau, or jugendstil, architecture. The 400-odd-step climb up to Fjellstua Kafé is worth the exertion; commanding mountain views await.

All the 10 stops on this hop-on hop-off tour are located within a 10-minute walk of the port, so you decide the time to return to your cruise boat in Ålesund. Allow yourself ample time to enjoy the excursion and ensure your timely return to port. This excursion is not covered by our worry-free policy.

Another great tour. Good English commentary with a good mix of information. With two cruise ships in port at the same time it could have been chaos but the ticketing was handled quickly and efficiently with no delays.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Great tour. Free WiFi on bus allowed us to share bus ride/sights with family 12000 miles away. Great service.
Please alter website so number of persons /tickets can be printed on one page we had lost page two indicating two tickets but operator accepted readily. Great experience. Ray Simpson

Weather was terrible, rainy and cold but the bus was good. Alesund is somewhat spread out and if the weather had been better, it would have been a great tour.

The Hop on hop off bus is the easiest way to see Alesund but they don't run often enough so you spend a lot of time waiting for the bus.

3 star rating: Worth doing July 2014

The trip was well worthwhile however although we had booked and paid for the trip two weeks previously with a dedicated time it was more by luck than judgement that we caught the right bus. We still had to wait in a queue to collect our tickets and if there had been two more people had been in front of us we would not have caught the bus and had wait 45 minutes for the next one. DEFINITELY NOT ENOUGH buses with 2 cruise ships in the port - the business you must have lost that day phew. Your staff were aware of the situation its just a another case where senior management refuse to listen to staff on the ground.
