The Atlantic Sea Park

Officially opened by the king and queen in 1998, the Atlantic Sea Park is an exciting place to visit. Well integrated into the weather beaten shore a few kilometres outside Ålesund, the building is an architectural gem. In the surrounding area there are several hiking trails, fishing grounds, spots for swimming and even possibilities for scuba diving.

Through several installations the park sheds light on aquatic wildlife from the inner fjords to the open sea.  There are more than twenty aquariums all showcasing different aquatic environments, life forms and sea depths. In the activity pools you can touch different animals and fish, and catch crabs with a line and bait. The highlight of any visit is the feeding of the penguins and fish. The park also gives daily diving shows aimed at children of all ages with singing and other ways of participating. There are also frequent photo and art exhibitions in the complex. The Atlantic Sea Park makes for a perfect day trip from Ålesund at any time of year in every type of weather.
