Day 1 Ålesund Arrival
Arrive in Ålesund and check into your hotel, located a short walk from the Hurtigruten pier.

Spend the afternoon and evening in this lovely town -  perhaps visit the medieval Museum, the Fisheries Museums or the Atlantic Seapark, or just take a walk through the town streets, and enjoy the sight of the many beautiful Art Nouveau buildings that were constructed after a  major fire in 1904. The houses are decorated with towers, turrets and imaginative and colourful ornaments -  the small details that make these houses so beautiful. Today Ålesund is renowned both nationally and internationally for its architecture. Overnight and breakfast at Radisson Blu Hotel Ålesund or similar.

Day 2 Ålesund – Geiranger
Breakfast at your hotel before departure on the Hurtigruten vessel, which arrives in Ålesund at around 08.45hrs and departs at around 09:30hrs. Travel the beautiful Geiranger Fjord from Ålesund to Geiranger where you will disembark via tender at around 13.30 hrs. 

Geiranger is the crowning glory of Norway's fjords and is considered a pearl of natural beauty. Majestic, snow-covered mountain peaks, beautiful and wild waterfalls, lush, green vegetation and the deep blue waters of the fjord -it is like something  from a fairy tale.  

Arrive in Geiranger and disembark for the short  transfer to the renowned Union Hotel for dinner and overnight.
