About Alesund Aquarium, Alesund

This marine park is the most popular attraction in town. It is one of the largest saltwater aquariums in Northern Europe. With 4000 sq metres of exhibition space, it is able to house 11 large aquariums, 2 open touch pools and 2 activity pools, and a few minor aquariums. Between them, they cover practically all of Norway’s important marine life.

Highlights are:

The Great Atlantic Tank: Cod, halibut, conger and salmon.

Selbukta: The world’s largest seal exhibit, outdoors.

It’s a 40 minute walk from the town center. Very manageable, especially considering the charming scenery of woods, monuments, the sea and the hiking paths. It’s a nice walk. Nearby, there’s also a beach where you can go swimming or scuba diving.

Alesund Aquarium, Alesund Reviews

  • Nice park with lots of sea life to admire from around Norway. We also watched the diver going to feed the fish in the big tank, which was great to watch. We also ate a good lunch here. Staff was friendly and helpful. Bit strange the last bus in summer goes back already so early, but that is something the park can't help.

  • Always a joy. Friendly staff and well kept.

  • Lovely place for grown-ups and children. The sea lions are shy but you have to be patient. 2 hours visit is recommended and better on weekends.

  • Lovely place to visit the for adults and children the amount of aquatic life to see is quite impressive and it's in a lovely scenic area too

  • Great exhibits. I've seen many penguins in my life but I've never seen any as playful as those I've seen here.
