10 days, Alexander von Humboldt II
Book this journey
Ålesund is an intimate harbor amongst beautiful fjords, mountains and islands. Consisting out of seven islands, Ålesund is a modern city. In 1904 the city, once built largely of wood, was completely burned down by a sea of flames. After a period of planning, the town was rebuilt in stone, brick, and mortar in Jugendstil. Visit the Atlantic Sea Park on a rainy day or, if the weather is nice, go to the Sunnmoere Museum to see historic Norwegian houses and Viking relics.
Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland, inhabited by about half a million people. The Old Town and New Town are jointly considered the UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city is a home to many festivals and events and the entertainment options are aboundant. Visit the Royal Yacht Britannia to see how the English Queen used to vacation and see the St Giles' Cathedral and Edinburgh Castle to immerse yourself in the history of the town.
