CULTURE

CULTURE International superstars and local language history, European Art Nouveau and rural museums. Sunnmøre offers up a plethora of cultural experiences. The varied range of museums and festivals at Sunnmøre enables meetings between past and future, locals and visitors. Go exploring and you will find a cultural treasure trove waiting to be discovered. Ålesund looks like a fantasy world, and is widely known for its characteristic Art Nouveau archi­tecture. A multitude of towers, spires and ornaments will draw your gaze, whether the town is bathed in the evening sun or glistening with raindrops. Ironically, we can thank the town fire of 1904 for the fact that Ålesund now boasts one of the world’s most concentrated collections of Art Nouveau architecture. The stories about the fire and the reconstruction in the Art Nouveau style are many, and best experienced at one of the town’s museums or with a local guide. Many fascinating stories are related to the people and region of Sunnmøre, and the varied selection of museums and experiences ensures that you will find something that suits your interests. Twelve museums are included in the foundation Stiftinga Sunnmøre Museum. Coastal and countryside culture, language history,

KLIPFISH CULTURE

ecclesiastical art and old traditions – there is something for everyone here. Ålesund is not classified as a city in Norwegian terms, but those who are hungry for experiences will quickly realise that there is a lot on offer here – from music festivals and theatres to the town fire walk and a culinary food festival. There are stadium concerts, intimate clubs and several festivals, such as the Jugendfest and Sommer­festen. The wider Sunnmøre region is also home to many reputable concert halls with a wide range of musical experiences on the pro­gramme. If you visit the countryside, you will also be surprised by the many historical plays in which local and professional actors create magical moments together with the natural wonders of Sunnmøre as the perfect backdrop. Your perfect cultural experience is waiting for you – you just have to choose!

Ålesund is Norway’s largest export port for klipfish (salted and dried cod). KLIPPFISKAKADEMIET, H7, +47 70 15 50 00, www.klippfiskakademiet.no, provide opportunities to learn more about our culinary traditions. Perhaps you will find the best klipfish meal in an Ålesund restaurant?

CULTURE

DISTINCTIVE LOCAL HISTORIES Dramatic historical events and powerful people have left their distinctive mark on the region. The viking era, the town fire, the fisheries and a breed of people who have a special ability to spot opportunities rather than problems. IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE VIKINGS A ship leaves no permanent traces on the surface of the sea, but if you travel along the coast of Sunnmøre you might feel that you are sailing in the Vikings’ wake. Many ancient monuments and historical plays bear witness to the region having played a central role in Norwegian and European history. Tradition has it that both Ragnvald Mørejarl and the Norman duke Gange-Rolv, or Rollo, were from Giske and the latter was the forefather of William the Conqueror and the English and Norwegian royal families. Giske Church, once the household chapel of the migthy Arnungane clans, bears witness to the riches on the island in the 1100s. Experience one of the Viking Plays in the region. Find more information about Herøyspelet “Kongens Ring”, see p. 21. FROM ASHES TO ART NOUVEAU On a cold stormy winter night on 23 January 1904 a dramatic fire raged through Ålesund. In the course of 16 hours 850 buildings were reduced to ashes and more than ten thousand people were made homeless. Miraculously only one person died as a result of the fire. The town was quickly rebuilt in the period from 1904-1907. Every year, at a quarter past two in the morning on 23 January, town fire enthusiasts assemble from far and near to follow the fire’s footsteps through the town. You may also re-live the history in the Time Machine at Jugendstilsenteret, see p. 13. The massive amount of help that came from all over the world once the devastation of the fire in Ålesund in 1904 became known was impressive. On 26 January, only three days after the fire, the first German ships came with emergency assistance, at the instigation of Kaiser Wilhelm II. The reconstruction of the town took place at a time of economic depression and extensive unemployment in Norway and craftsmen and architects streamed to Ålesund in the hope of finding work. Many of them were internationally orientated

10

VISITALESUND.COM/CULTURE

through their training, practice and study tours. The reconstruction gave the town a unique archi­tectural expression and a distinctive local vari­ ation of Art Nouveau within a concentrated area. The town reflects the different aspects of the building style in a lively and diverse way. Lift your gaze while you explore the town and you will discover the many and varied expressions of Art Nouveau. You will find elements of German Art Nouveau/jugendstil with elegant organic lines and asymmetry, hewn stone buildings inspired by American architecture and National Romantic details from the architecture of the stave churches. INDUSTRIOUS AND ALMOST CULTIVATED More than two thirds of the world’s production of klipfish is loaded on board ships that sail from Norway’s fishing capital Ålesund. Nowadays the region is also a world leader in ship design and advanced maritime technology. The enterprising people of Sunnmøre have deep roots in the Viking traditions. Just like their predecessors they are exceptional craftsmen and outstanding businessmen, even if plunder has been put aside. It is not surprising that Ålesund - The Art Nouveau Town is the host for the InnoTown Innovation Confe­ rence, which draws together innovators and business leaders from all over the world, see p. 21. ISLAND TREASURES Runde has some of the largest bird cliffs in the country, but did you know that the island is also known as the site of Norway’s biggest find of ancient coins? The Runde treasure is the valuable cargo that the Dutch cargo ship “Akerendam” had on board on her maiden voyage in 1725, when she strayed off course and was shipwrecked off Runde one stormy night on 8 March that year. The treasure was discovered in 1972 by three sports divers, who found more than 57,000 coins. Explore an exciting selection of artefacts and coins on display in an exhibition at Runde Miljøsenter, see p. 14 and 46.

SIGHTSEEING

WORLD-CLASS NATURE Not many places are blessed with such beautiful, untouched nature. Geirangerfjord features on the prestigious UNESCO World Heritage List. Hjørundfjord is just as stunning, but an undiscovered treasure for many. By the ocean, you will find the Art Nouveau town Ålesund, which has won the title of Norway's most beautiful town. This combination is unique! If you have seen photos of picturesque fjords and majestic mountains, chances are they were taken in Sunnmøre. You will not find more beautiful fjords anywhere else in the world! Be amazed by Geirangerfjord, a place you simply cannot miss. Hjørundfjord is just as impressive, but not as full of tourists. THE ROYAL FJORD ROUTE Generations of royalty and nobility from Europe have visited Sunnmøre and been fascinated by the region's dramatic mountains and fjords. Hjørundfjord, Norangsdal and Geirangerfjord all have historical hotels that date back to the late 1800s. Experiences you are unlikely to forget are waiting for you, and they are all easily accessible by foot, boat, bus or train. Throughout the year, there is a great selection of trips for visitors, and a local guide can accompany you on many of them. If you like, you can experience town and country, mountains and fjords in just one day.

VISITALESUND.COM/SIGHTSEEING

Join a guided town walk and learn more about Ålesund’s fascinating history and architecture. Lift your eyes and discover the many beautiful and detailed ornaments on the building façades. Once you have noticed all the details, it is time to get the big picture. Step on board the little town train, which will take you to the top of the town mountain Aksla, where an astounding panoramic view of the town, mountains and ocean awaits. From the many windows on buses, boats and f erries, you can enjoy splendid views of magnifi­cent waterfalls, sheer mountainsides, snowcovered peaks and thriving villages by the fjords. A coastal cruise is the perfect way to experience scenic lighthouses, charming towns and quaint island communities. Enjoy the bracing sea air, marvel at the stillness and take a welldeserved break from everyday life. You will not regret it!

HIKING

HIKING “You will never see another such view”, said the well-known British mountaineer William Slingsby about the panoramic vistas at Slogen. The Sunnmøre Alps rise up from the fjords and have captured the imaginations of visitors to the region for several hundred years. A growing number of people are now also discovering the easy hikes in the coastal mountains, with their heathland, seabirds and huge expanse of sea and sky. Explore peaks and valleys in the Sunnmøre Alps, enjoy the lush and family-friendly coastal region, or marvel at the panoramic view from Ålesund’s town mountain Aksla. The Sunnmøre Alps are known for mighty summits with dizzying views straight down into the fjords, but you can also stroll along pastures in the valleys and look up at the impressive peaks and crags. Out towards the horizon, there are lower and smoother mountains, where you can taste the salty air and hear the song of the ocean. Long pebble beaches and sandy beaches allow you to get close to the sea and explore animal life by the shore. Sunnmøre’s nature spans from summits to seaweed. Tafjordfjella is the biggest hiking area in Sunnmøre, with varied nature and the trips at different levels. This is also where you find Puttegga, the highest peak in Møre & Romsdal county. Here you will definitely find trips suitable for everyone! Long summer days, bracing autumn storms, bright, crisp winters and magical spring seasons – you will find it all here. Sunnmøre offers mountains and nature walks for every season and hiking ability.

34

VISITALESUND.COM/HIKING

If you prefer demanding terrain, or would like to learn more about our nature and culture, you can join a guided hike. Local guides and summit guides who know and love the area would be more than happy to share their knowledge with you. Most trips must be booked in advance. The beautiful nature in the coastal mountains and alpine region can be enjoyed the whole year through. There are many mountains and many possibilities! There are 300 kilometres of signposted paths in the Sunnmøre mountains – and several thousand kilometres of nonsignposted paths. Sunnmøre will whet your appetite, and many visitors are not satisfied with day trips. If this is the case, you can extend your mountain adventure by seeking shelter in the cabins belonging to The Norwegian Trekking Association (DNT), hire a fisherman’s shack, cabin or spend the night at a hotel. No matter what kind of hiking holiday you have opted for, you will learn more about nature, about those you are hiking with, and about yourself.


Hiking around Hjørundfjorden

HIKING

LIVE WELL BY THE MOUNTAINS When your bed is in the middle of spectacular nature, unique hiking experiences are just a stone’s throw away. Try a practical and comfortable stay in a bunk bed in a family cabin, or opt for luxurious relaxation in a four-poster bed at a hotel. Bring a map and explore on your own, or join a guide on a hike. No matter what you do, Sunnmøre is an adventure. HJØRUNDFJORD AND THE SUNNMØRE ALPS The Sunnmøre Alps are a magnet for naturelovers. Sharp peaks reach up from the fjord to heights of nearly 1,700 metres above sea level. Even in summer, the craggy mountaintops are covered by snow, and there numerous glaciers as well.

plore them on foot throughout most of the year. In this region, you can go mountain hiking one day, fishing by boat the next, and enjoy bird­ watching with binoculars on day three. You can visit the animals at a petting farm, and experience the flashing lights from picturesque lighthouses.

Hjørundfjord is a great base for a hiking holiday, and there are plenty of characteristic hotels and quality cabins to choose from. The fjord is surrounded by peaks like Slogen and Skårasalen, which are both more than 1,500 metres above sea level. The sherpa-built stone stairs at Saksa, at more than 1,000 metres above sea level, and the newly signposted circular walk across Urkeegga, have opened these mountains up to new hikers.

ÅLESUND There are very few places in the world where you can find hiking experiences right in the middle of town. The well-known lookout point Fjellstua and the town mountain Aksla gives you a panoramic view of Ålesund, the Sunnmøre Alps, the fjord and the ocean that you are not likely to forget. Combine easy, family-friendly trips with visits to cafés and restaurants, museums and the aquarium.

Molladalen is a family-friendly alternative, with a mountain lake and a campsite surrounded by dizzying peaks that provide challenges for boulderers and climbers alike.

THE TAFJORD MOUNTAINS The largest hiking region in Sunnmøre is known as the Tafjord mountains. Here you will find varied nature, including both steep and gentle hillsides as well as open country. The area is full of great mountain peaks, including the tallest mountain in Møre og Romsdal, Puttegga, which towers 1,999 metres above sea level.

If you’re heading out into demanding terrain or want to learn more about our nature and culture from a guide, read the chapter Guided walks and hikes on page 38. THE MOUNTAINS BY THE COAST The distance from the mountains to the ocean is short, and the coastal mountains are great for unique and family-friendly hiking experiences. Vanylven and Haram, and the islands of Sula, Godøy and Runde are coastal regions that are ideal bases for hiking holidays as the mountain peaks are so close by. The mountains by the coast are fairly free from snow, and you can ex-

VISITALESUND.COM/HIKING

The Tafjord mountains blend into the majestic and wild Romsdal Alps to the north, and Renn­ heimen National Park to the east. You can cross the mountain region or opt for circular walks in the Tafjord mountains. This area is popular both summer and winter. There is a map on page 2, and more information about accommodation from page 74.

OUTDOOR

OUTDOOR LIFE Ålesund & Sunnmøre is an eldorado for those who are fond of intense nature experiences, be it on land or at sea. Chances are you will make a huge catch in the ocean, or get close to one of the many hundreds of thousands of seabirds at Runde. Explore the landscape by kayak, hurtle down a hillside on a bicycle, or challenge yourself on an action-filled sea safari. No matter what you choose, each moment will be magical. At Sunnmøre, distances are short – fantastic fjords, majestic mountains, the open ocean and idyllic islands are all close by. This means you can experience several different landscapes in one day. You are guaranteed to find challenges that will suit you – whether you are an expert or beginner, and whether you prefer to explore alone or follow an experienced guide. The bird island Runde is a place you simply must visit. When hundreds of thousands of birds are nesting, the island is teeming with life. See and hear the birds from a boat, or take the trip up onto the mountain. Whether you visit by land or by sea, make sure you bring a pair of binoculars so you can see the birds up close. The area is a paradise for fishing enthusiasts, as well. If you are lucky, you will catch a big one. The chances of a big catch are highest if you follow local fishermen out to sea, but you can also catch fish from land. If you are on holiday with children, fishing

with a hook and bait in freshwater is a great way to entertain them. A kayak brings you really close to nature. Whether you like to paddle the ocean, explore islands and skerries, or contemplate the still fjords beneath towering mountains, you will find the perfect experience for you. Did you know that you can also go paddling in the middle of Ålesund’s Art Nouveau architecture? Sunnmøre is also great for cyclists. Young families can enjoy the flat terrains of the islands out in the ocean while taking in the bracing coastal air. More experienced cyclists can explore steep mountain paths that offer amazing views of the fjords. Get the adrenalin pumping with an action-filled sea safari, river rafting or surfing session, or try going beneath the surface. This landscape offers up a wealth of activities, and you will be surprised by how much there is to do when you are holidaying in Sunnmøre!

ARE YOU LOOKING FOR TIPS/ADVICE FROM QUALIFIED PEOPLE? At Ålesund – Sunnmøre Turistforening (Tourist Association/DNT) you can get detailed routes and buy hiking maps and guide books. Kongensgt. 17, H2, call +47 70 12 58 04 or go to www.turistforeningen.no/alesund or the tour planner www.ut.no.

FISHING LUCK Sunnmøre is a paradise for fishing enthusiasts. Try your luck in the species-rich waters off the Sunnmøre coast, join the winter fishery in Borgundfjord near Ålesund, or visit one of the many rivers in the area. If you have ever caught the big one, you will know what we mean by fishing luck!

Borgundfjord Fisheries

RENT A FISHING BOAT WITH A SKIPPER/GUIDE There are several companies in the area that offer organised fjord and ocean fishing trips on demand. You will be joined by a skipper and guide who knows where the fish bites, and who probably can be persuaded to tell you a tall tale or two. In the late winter, the Borgundfjord fishery is an unmissable experience. Just outside Ålesund town centre, you can catch big codfish that are migrating to spawn. There are several places you can bring your catch where a professional chef will help you cook the best fish dish of your life.

VISITALESUND.COM/OUTDOOR

FISHERMAN’S SHACKS BY THE COAST AND CABINS BY THE FJORD Sunnmøre offers several alternatives for fishing fanatics who would love to spend more time here. Wellequipped cabins and fisherman’s shacks (rorbu) are located just by the water’s edge, with great ocean or fjord fishing just outside the door, so everything you need for a successful fishing holiday is provided for. You can also rent a boat, and some places are furnished with gutting benches, freezers and life vests, as well as tourist hosts who can advise you about the best fishing spots.

NORTHERN EUROPE’S SHORTEST SALMON RIVER Between the Sunnmøre Alps, several mountain lakes are glinting in the sun. There are also many rivers of varying sizes running through the valleys. Straumen in Sykkylven is only a few hundred metres long, and thus Northern Europe’s shortest salmon river. The zone at the bottom of the river is reserved for fly-fishing.

The island boasts Norway's southernmost bird mountain, and is also the most species-rich seabird region in Scandinavia as more than 200 different species have been observed here. Roughly 100,000 puffins nest here, but birds like northern gannets and great skuas (bonxies) have large, established populations here during the nesting season. Above it all, sea eagles float with their impressive wingspan that can exceed 2.5 metres. The peak season is between April and August, and you can see the greatest number of birds in the afternoons and evenings. Runde is also known as ‘treasure island’ due to the gold that was discovered on the wreck site of the Dutch trading ship Akerendam, which ran ashore here in 1725. Please remember that Runde has protected nature areas with specific rules of access.

CLOSE TO NATURE AT SEA OR ON SHORE Get ready for a few hours of relaxing kayaking, or opt for a longer trip and spend the night in a tent or lavvu on a small island. Get an adrenalin surge behind the handlebars, or enjoy family-friendly bicycle trips. There is so much to explore, both on land and at sea.

Kayaking in the fjords

CYCLE FROM ISLAND TO ISLAND You can bring your bicycle on the many express boats that connect Ålesund and the mainland with the outer islands. Here you will discover several cycle paths with very little traffic. The islands in the municipality of Giske have flat terrains and are also great for cycling trips. You can reach them by boat, or by car or bus through subsea tunnels. (Timetables are available at www.frammr.no).

HIKING WITH GUIDE The mountains in the north-western part of Norway are very similar to the European alps, with tall peaks, glaciers and lots of snow. This is the ideal starting point for hikes and glacier walks in the summer, and peak skiing from mountain to fjord in the winter. When you are hiking in demanding terrain, it is wise to team up with locals who are familiar with the area and can judge the weather and conditions. Several companies also provide packages that include guides, boat trips, skiing trips, food and accommodation. More information can be found on pages 74-84.

DIVING The coast of Sunnmøre is well-known for offering great diving experiences all year round. The clear water is perfect for current diving in Skodje­ straumen and wreck diving by Runde and in the fjords. If you visit the lake Lygnstøylsvatnet in Norangsdalen, you can float above bridges and between stone borders and house walls – underwater. This is now a unique diving spot in Norway. Please remember that the ruins and animal life in Lygnstøylsvatnet are very vulnerable, so take care not to disturb it.

FAMILY & CHILDREN

SUNNMØRE IS A PLAYGROUND Ålesund & Sunnmøre is an exciting holiday destination for everyone – including families. Many people come here to play and explore together, and there is no shortage of activities! Ålesund is home to Atlanterhavsparken, one of the largest aquariums in Northern Europe, which has won the title for best aquarium in the Nordic countries. Here you can explore the mysteries beneath the surface. The large pools reveal what life looks like in the ocean and fjords, and by the smaller pools, you can touch prickly sea urchins and doughy sea cucumbers, fish for crab and feed the fish. The largest tank contains a diver who feeds the cod and catfish while giving them a pat on the cheek. Outside, Ålesund’s harbour seals are having fun in Europe’s largest facility for seals. Their next-door neighbours are the penguins – who naturally have their dinner served by a person wearing white tie and tails. What about letting the children meet the cute animals at Hakallegarden or Blakstad Gard petting farms? Go horse riding or drive a tractor, cuddle a kitten and meet animals such as pigs, geese, donkeys, rabbits, peacocks and alpacas. At the bird mountain Runde, the puffins come in from the ocean in flocks and settle just a few metres away from you as the sun sinks towards the horizon. At Runde, you can also discover cannons and gold coins, and learn the thrilling story about the Runde treasure at the Runde Environmental Centre.

54

VISITALESUND.COM/FAMILY

The steep mountainsides at Sunnmøre are great for hydropower production, but they are also dangerous neighbours. A power station in Tafjord has established a power and landslide centre. Here, the children can set up their own slides with rocks and clay, and learn about landslides past and future. They can also research rock types and energy in the science corner, and there is even a 20-metre long pipe to slide down. There is nothing quite like testing your limits in fun outdoor and indoor playgrounds. In Valldal, you can experience an exhilarating activity park with a total of 800 metres of climbing routes up in canopy. The routes have different levels of difficulty and are suitable for children and adults of all ages. If you visit Ålesund, you can keep playing. Barnas Lekeland is a unique and popular indoor activity centre and amusement park featuring some of Norway's largest playground constructions. If you want your holiday to be an exciting trip for the whole family, there are many good reasons to make Ålesund & Sunnmøre your destination.

SKIING & WINTER

SKIING & WINTER The alpine fjord and mountain landscape of the Sunnmøre Alps is the starting point for some of the most unique skiing experiences in Norway. The views of the fjords and mountains are quite breath taking! Go for the powder snow and endless areas of off-piste skiing or enjoy excellent cross country skiing trips with the family. Enjoy skiing one day; surfing, fishing or birding the next. The Sunnmøre alps are well known among skiing enthusiasts and are often mentioned in well-known skiing magazines as the undiscovered treasure of the skiing world for those looking for the absolutely spectacular. The combination of vast areas of powder snow and views over a beautiful fjord and alpine landscape would be exceedingly difficult to find anywhere else in the world. The memorable skiing and winter experiences often start in the Art Nouveau town of Ålesund. A ski bus will take you efficiently from Ålesund to the Stranda Ski Centre, which has been proclaimed the best ski resort for off-piste skiers. The distances between the many ski resorts in the region are short, and the resorts have a

joint ski lift card: the Alpepass. This provides you with the flexibility to choose the skiing that suits you perfectly. Local guides will take you to unfamiliar mountain areas where a boat may be the best or only means of getting there. Over the past few years, Ski & Sail in Hjørundfjorden and the Sunnmøre Alps have steadily become more popular. Travel on the fjord from place to place and reach a new mountain summit every day! If the weather and skiing conditions are not completely optimal one day, or if you are looking for other things to do, you have several alternatives. Join in the Borgundfjord fishing for winter cod, explore the birdlife or encourage your adrenaline by surfing on awesome waves.

FRIFLYT HIGH CAMP IN HJØRUNDFJORDEN 21. - 24. MARCH 2019 The Friflyt High Camp in Hjørundfjorden at Sæbø, V12, is an annually winter mountaineering festival in Sæbø/Hjørundfjorden the centre of the Sunnmøre Alps. During the festival you can experience guided ski touring, concerts, lectures, social activities and much more. All with the beautiful Sunn­ møre Alps as the playground. www.highcamp.no

SKIING & WINTER

SKIING IN A FJORD LANDSCAPE Mountains and fjords form a perfect and quite special backdrop for the skiing resorts of the region. Unique views of the fjords from the ski trails provide an unequalled experience for all who love snow and winter. Off-piste skiers are able to enjoy powder snow and pristine downhill skiing next to prepared trails while summit enthusiasts will find their paradise on snow clad mountain sides

Stranda Ski Resort

NORWAY'S BEST SKI RESORTS Sunnmøre is a good starting point for memorable skiing adventures. A ski bus will take you efficiently from Ålesund to the largest skiing centre in the region, the Stranda Ski centre, which has also been proclaimed the best ski resort for off-piste skiers. Three mountain restaurants and a cable car are some of the things you can enjoy. The skiing centre has a unique location. Have a try at Alperittet: ski the path of the race from the top of Roaldshorn, at 1230 m above sea level, and straight down to Stranda Ski centre by the fjord. Loose snow and views of the fjord are some of its characteristics. Local guides will take you to some of their less well-known, favourite places to ski, and afterwards a powder cab or a friendly resident may take you back to the skiing centre.

VISITALESUND.COM/SKI

THE ALPEPASS The Alpepass - one card, nine skiing centres Alpepass is a joint lift card for nine skiing centres in the region, and permits your access to an abundant and varied offer of lifts, downhill runs, terrain parks and off-piste areas.

The distances between the resorts are short, and it is entirely possible for eager snow enthusiasts to visit several ski resorts in one and the same day.

SKIING & WINTER

BE PREPARED Always check the weather, snow conditions and avalanche warnings before going out on a tour. If you want to go out into unfamiliar terrain a qualified guide with local knowledge will lead you safely to your skiing paradise. Summit tours require good physical fitness and good skiing skills. You either use alpine touring skis (randonée skis) or telemark skis and skins. If you are a snowboarder, snow shoes or a splitboard is recommended. Touring on your own without a guide requires knowledge about avalanches, first aid and navigation. If you are going to explore an area for the first time it is recommended that you use a guide with local knowledge. An avalanche course and offpiste guide can be very useful if you intend to move around in areas outside the marked tracks. Use the map to form an overview of the best skiing adventures in the region. The Alpepass centres, areas suitable for cross-country skiing and summit tours are marked, as are other winter activities. All Alpepass centres offer ski hire and skiing instruction. Contact the individual ski centre, see p. 67, or www.alpepass.no for further information.
