Avaiable May 28 - August 31
Discover the majestic Sunnmøre Alps from the magnificent, 35-km long Hjørundfjord in Møre & Romsdal between Ålesund and Øye. You will travel through unspoilt nature in a dramatic, rugged, varied and historically rich fjord landscape.
The Hjørundfjord is surrounded by steep mountains that rise up vertically from the fjord with peaks stretching 1,700 metres above sea level. The fjord splits the Sunnmøre Alps in two with small villages along both sides of the fjord, some without any road connection. Some of these villages remain unspoilt and have kept their authenticity, as the boat has been the only form of transport for centuries for the people who live here.
The fjord cruise is a picturesque voyage through the core of the Sunnmøre Alps, between Ålesund and Øye, where you have the opportunity to embark or disembark in Trandal. In recent years, Christian Gaard Bygdetun in Trandal has become one of the most spectacular and most visited music festivals in Western Norway. Major national and international artists such as The Blues Brothers and Adam Douglas have been seduced by the mighty landscape and the atmosphere of Trandal and continue to return year after year.
