We’ll travel by bus to the island of Giske, known as the ‘Saga Island.’ Birthplace of the Viking Chieftain Rollo, ancestor of William the Conqueror, this island has been inhabited since the Bronze Age. 

You’ll also pass the 12th century white marble church that was built by the island’s ruling family for their own use, before continuing to the island of Godøy. 

Here, we drive through the fishing village of Alnes up to Alnes Lighthouse. Built in 1876, it is a protected relic of Norwegian culture and offers great views of the coastline for those that climb to the top.  

Explore the historical exhibitions and local souvenir and crafts in the main building and then relax with a coffe and homemade cake.  

Back in the town of Ålesund, we make one last stop at Mount Aksla to enjoy the breathtaking vista of the town, the surrounding archipelago, and fjord.
