Atlantic Sea Park Alesund

Atlanterhavsparken - Ålesund Aquarium

 Atlanterhavsparken is one of northern Europe’s largest saltwater aquariums, an architectural gem integrated into the shoreline. We enjoyed close encounters with some of the rich marine life found in and around the coastal waters of Norway. 

The visit included a spectacular diving show in Norway’s largest aquarium tank, where the fish can be seen being hand-fed by the divers, and a visit to the open-air pool where we saw my favorite exhibit, the resident penguins.

Ålesund Norway 

Our first port of call on our Norway coastal voyage was to this beautiful city, rebuilt in Art Nouveau, after the city fire of 1904. After the visit to Atlanterhavsparken, the tour continued to Mount Aksla, where we admired the view of Ålesund before returning to the quayside.
