This picturesque village sits on the Aurlandsfjord, a branch of the vast Sognefjord. You’ll be mesmerised by the dramatic views from the viewing platform, which protrudes high over the fjord. Not for the faint-hearted! As you continue your breathtaking journey on Azura, you’ll already be realising that the only way to soak up the vastness and majesty of this unique landscape is to sail through it.
Located amidst the fjords and mountains and peppered with Art Nouveau architecture and fairytale turrets, it’s no surprise that Alesund is frequently considered one of the most beautiful cities in Norway. As well as its outstanding natural beauty, the city is the cultural epicentre of the region and host to many festivals throughout the world.
Highlights of this a pretty medieval city include the beautifully preserved, multi-coloured wooden houses of Bryggen; the picturesque fish market located between the fjords and mountains, and the Fløibanen funicular for amazing views of Bergen from the top of Mount Fløyen. You could also visit the home of Norway’s most famous composer Edvard Grieg, or admire the ice sculptures at the Magic Ice Bar.
If there’s one thing that really sets the Azura apart it’s the range and quality of her dining venues. Guests may choose to enjoy a five-course, silver-service experience in the Peninsular or Oriental restaurants, or reserve an exclusive table in one of Azura’s signature à la carte restaurants.
