Only a few minutes by car from the center of Ålesund, you find Atlanterhavsparken, one of the largest Saltwater-Aquariums in northern Europe.

The Atlanterhavsparken is one of the most particular Aquariums in Europe. The Aquarium is built into the coastal landscape at Tueneset, the coastline west in Ålesund.

Through the day there are several activities, check the activityprogram. Be fascinated by the hectic activity in the largest tank when the diver enters to hand-feed the fish every day at 13 o'clock (from June - August  also at 15.30). And try picking up a Starfish or fish some crab in the Activityroom.

The Aquarium has a spectacular outdoor area with a view directly to the Atlantic Ocean. In the spacious outdoor area there is a separate penguin park. The penguins is fed every day at 14.30. There is also a popular Waterplaypark and a gigantic Octopus sculpture, perfect for the children to play in.The newest attraction is the Sealbay with an underwater observatory that shows the seals life in a spectacular way. The Harbour Seals has the perfect home in Europe`s biggest sealpool.
