Going all out in Ålesund

Ålesund has some great places to stay and the food is another good reason to use the town as a base for ski trips in the nearby mountains.

Try the salt cod restaurant XL Diner. Over 90% of the world’s salt cod, or bacalao as it is also called, comes from Ålesund. There are imaginative variations here with a taste of the Mediterranean, Asia and India.

Hotel Brosundet and Molja Lighthouse

Hotel Brosundet is housed in a listed building that is over 100 years old and it is a special place. The hotel also operates the Molja Lighthouse, the most unusual place in town to sleep. It has been refit by renowned Norwegian architects Snø­hetta – famous for designing the Oslo Opera House and the Ground Zero Museum in New York.

Dalen butcher shop

This butcher shop has been in existence for more than 90 years and it is the oldest one in town. On the counter, you’ll find a wide range of Norwegian delicacies such as fenalår – cured lamb – and genuine Sunnmøre sausages. And the fish cakes always sell out fast at lunch.
