Scandic Parken is centrally located in the “Art Nouveau” town, Ålesund. The hotel is an ideal venue for both small and larger conferences. Most rooms offer a great view over the city and the ocean. The top floor is very popular due to its seven exclusive suites and the meeting room “Polarbjørn”. The latter is used for small and intimate venues. The hotel’s two restaurants offer local specialities as well as international menus.

Scandic Parken can arrange a wide variety of activities, including guided city walks, boat trips, cod fishing, bird safari to the island of Runde, open-air museum, aquarium as well as excursions to the Geiranger and Hjørund fjord, Norway’s most beautiful fjords.
