Discover Aalesund, Norway with Car Hire

 

Aalesund, often spelled Ålesund, is a port town on the west coast of Norway. Renowned for its Art Nouveau architecture, stunning fjords, and the Sunnmøre Alps, Aalesund is a dream destination for travelers. A devastating fire in 1904 razed most of the town, but it was rebuilt with stone and brick in the Art Nouveau style, making it a unique spot in Norway.

Advantages of Hiring a Car in Aalesund:

  1. Unparalleled Freedom: Aalesund and its surrounding areas offer diverse attractions. With a car at your disposal, you can explore the region at your leisure, from its mountainous terrains to its coastal roads.

  2. Nearest Airport: Aalesund Airport, Vigra, is conveniently located about 18 km from the town center. With a rental car, you can reach Aalesund in under 20 minutes, offering immediate access to the town and its surroundings right from your landing.

  3. Road Conditions: Norwegian roads are generally in excellent condition. The routes leading to and from Aalesund offer scenic drives, though it's essential to remain cautious during winter months due to icy conditions.

  4. Tolls and Traffic: Like many parts of Norway, there are toll roads around Aalesund. Ensure your rental car is equipped with an AutoPASS, or be prepared for manual toll payments. Traffic is typically light in and around Aalesund, but it's wise to check current conditions, especially during peak seasons.

  5. Recommended Attractions & Routes:

    • Aksla Viewpoint: Accessible by car, this viewpoint offers a panoramic view of the town, surrounding islands, and fjords.
    • Atlantic Sea-Park: Norway's second-largest aquarium and a fantastic spot to learn about marine life.
    • Geirangerfjord: A UNESCO World Heritage site, this fjord is a must-visit and is about a two-hour drive from Aalesund.
    • Godøy Coastal Road: A picturesque drive offering views of the ocean, lighthouses, and rugged landscapes.

Why Hiring a Car is Essential:
While Aalesund itself is walkable, many of the region's most breathtaking attractions require some driving. Public transport, though reliable, might not offer the flexibility and convenience that a personal car does. A rental car allows for spontaneous detours, extended stays at favorite spots, and the freedom to explore lesser-known beauties in the region.

Conclusion:
Aalesund, with its distinct architecture and natural beauty, is a Norwegian gem that promises a memorable experience. By hiring a car, you can dive deep into its history, navigate its fjords, and truly experience the magic of Norway's west coast. Whether it's the allure of the Art Nouveau buildings, the serenity of the fjords, or the thrill of mountainous drives, Aalesund beckons.

Key Highlights for Car Hire at Aalesund: Making the Most of Your Journey.

  • Atlantic Road (Atlanterhavsveien): Just a thrilling drive from Ålesund, this road is a marvel of engineering that stretches across archipelagos, islands, and the open sea. It's known for its stunning views and dramatic bridges, making it a must-see for anyone with a rental car looking to experience Norway's coastal beauty.

  • Geirangerfjord: About a 3-hour drive from Ålesund, the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Geirangerfjord is one of Norway's most famous fjords. A rental car allows you to explore the various viewpoints like Flydalsjuvet and Ørnesvingen, offering breathtaking views of the fjord's deep blue waters and surrounding cliffs.

  • Trollstigen (The Troll's Path): Approximately a 2-hour drive from Ålesund, this serpentine mountain road is an adventure in itself, with its steep incline and tight bends. The road leads to a spectacular viewing platform where you can gaze over the Trollstigen pass and Stigfossen waterfall. Having a hire car gives you the freedom to visit early in the morning or late in the evening, avoiding the crowds.

  • Alesund Town Centre: Don't miss exploring Ålesund itself. The town is known for its Art Nouveau architecture, a result of rebuilding after a catastrophic fire in 1904. A rental car allows for easy access to local museums, the Aksla Viewpoint, and nearby attractions such as the Sunnmøre Museum, a cultural and natural history museum with an outdoor area featuring historic Norwegian boats.

  • Runde Island: About an hour's drive from Ålesund, Runde is famous for its enormous seabird colonies, housing hundreds of thousands of birds. It's a paradise for birdwatchers and nature lovers. With a hire car, you can plan your visit to coincide with the best times for birdwatching or hiking to enjoy the island's natural beauty.
