Svalbard is a Norwegian archipelago in the Arctic Ocean with its largest island being the famous Spitsbergen. If you want to experience the arctic climate, although tempered by a warm current, Svalbard is the place to visit. Look for seabirds, reindeer and marine mammals but watch out for polar bears! With approximately 2,600 people living in Svalbard, there are more polar bears than people. It's a must-see place for nature lovers and enthusiasts of the polar regions.
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.
