Overview

We will take you in a small wooden sailboat of the class 12,5 kvm. This is a traditional Norwegian class designed by Chris Jensen in 1929. You will be sailing off from the peer at the bus station, next to where the cruises dock. The tour will take about two hours. During this time we will try to see the entire south shore of Alesund in the Borgundfjord. The tour captain can spend this time telling you stories of the city, its history and every day life or he can let you and you company enjoy the ride in silence. Up to you.

Around Ålesund, this is the best possible way to get a private relaxing tour and see the magnificient views of the sunnmøre alps through the fjords.

This boat tour took us around Ålesund town and the beautiful Borgund fjord. The guides are very friendly and helpful. If you like nature and want to experience some sailing the Norwegian way, this is for you.

The tour was really nice and the guide was excellent. The big disappointment though was the weather... I still think the trip was amazing even though the weather wasn't all that great. This is a off the main stream tour, a real hidden gem!
