Alesund, Norway Overview
The municipality of Ålesund occupies seven of the outer islands in the county of More og Romsdal: Hessa, Aspoya, Norvoya, Uksnøya, Ellingsoya, Humla, and Tørla. The town centre is located on the islands Aspøya and Nørvøya, while Heissa and Oksnoya contain residential areas.
The second largest island, Ellingsøya, used to be accessible only by boat or by road via Skodje Municipality, but the undersea Ellingsøy Tunnel was built in 1987 to make traveling between the island and the town centre more convenient. The tunnel is 3,481 metres (11,421 ft) long, and was upgraded in 2009.
Situated 236 km north northeast of the city of Bergen, Ålesund is adjacent to the Hjørund and Geiranger fjords, the latter being on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites.

Norway - Ålesund
In the night of January 23. 1904 practically the entire wooden town centre of Ålesund on the Norwegian West Coast was destroyed in a fire. The disaster hit the news headlines all across the world and a major restoration effort took place. During the following three years the centre was rebuilt, this time using stone as building material.
The Art Nouveau Town of Ålesund could have be taken right out of a fairytale. Its beauty is simply mesmerizing! The town is also called "the adventure capital of the fjords". (By Yancy Caldwell, Matador Network)
