And of course, helicopter tours are always available as a part of the bespoken experience, should you wish to fly over the Sunnmore Mountains of the area.
A Tour of A Town Built All at Once
In the town of Alesund, the architecture has an unusual consistency. This is because in 1904, a huge fire burned down nearly everything wooden in the area, which included all of the buildings. Though only one life was lost, the town had to do a total rebuild all of its homes. This was accomplished with a rush of help from 20 master builders and 30 architects from all over Europe. They all agreed to focus on the Art Nouveau style, and today, there are several Art Nouveau museums and study centers in the town. When you have finished exploring the fjords of the region, you may wish a bespoke tour of the town’s aquarium, or perhaps a round of golf on the Sølnor Gaard course near the town center. The hotel’s dining establishment, Restaurant Maki, offers eight course dinners and may be the best restaurant in the country. The Hotel Brosundet will be glad to provide you with the bespoken travel experience that will make your journey to Norway an unforgettable experience.
