A Coastal Combination

Begin your short break in Bergen where mountain meets fjord in impressive style. This charming and colourful city embraces its surroundings and offers an fascinating array of activities, museums, culture and cuisine. Set sail with Hurtigurten, the Norwegian ferry service that has connected coastal communities for over 120 years. You will be hugging the coastline on your overnight journey north to Ålesund, a town famed for its distinctive Art Nouveau architecture and envious location at the entrance to the Sunnmøre fjords and the spectacular Geiranger fjord.
Day 1 UK – Bergen
Fly to Bergen and self-transfer to the Thon Hotel Rosenkrantz for 2 nights.
Day 2 Bergen
Free time to enjoy Bergen your way. You may wish to take the funicular or cable car up to the top of Bergen’s surrounding mountains for some impressive views and trekking. Try some delicacies at the Fish Market, or buy a bun from Baker Brun. Take the tram to Troldhaugen, the home of Edvard Grieg. Join the throngs exploring the Hanseatic wharf, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and symbol of Bergen’s 11th century cultural heritage.
Day 3 Hurtigruten
Your Hurtigruten ship leaves early evening giving another full day to explore the maze of perfectly preserved wooden houses and cobbled streets or delve into the art museums that fill four buildings in the city centre. Embark for the overnight journey to Ålesund. Dinner is served as you cruise the coast with the view made all the more enjoyable as a result of the long summer evenings.
Day 4 Geiranger & Ålesund
You arrive quayside in the morning but stay on board the ship for a day cruise into the mighty Geiranger fjord. Lunch is included. There is an optional excursion to disembark at Geiranger and take a dramatic and panoramic return coach journey to Ålesund arriving back to meet the boat late afternoon. Overnight at Hotel Brosundet for 2 nights
Day 5 Ålesund
Day free to explore at leisure. This can be on foot, by bike or on an exciting sea safari. Public buses and ferries can also take you further afield to Briksdal Glacier or consider hiring a car for more flexibility and independence.
Day 6  Ålesund - UK
Direct flights operate to London Gatwick enabling you to enjoy another full day at leisure before returning to the UK.

Hotel Brosundet

A little imagination and you will sense history when you gaze out the windows of Hotel Brosundet. 100 years ago the person leaning out these windows would have been someone waiting for a fishing-boat to deliver its catch. The old Art Nouveau warehouse is now transformed into a tasteful hotel. Our hotel is a retreat for your stay in Aalesund. Hotel Brosundet is small and intimate with only 47 rooms.
