Fjord Norway Møre og Romsdal ÅLESUND

Rollo's Footsteps - the ultimate Viking tour

  • Start: Cruiseharbour, Ålesund
  • +47 93849161
  •  /  km From You
Overview

A guided tour through Aalesund with a historical review of the time when Chieftain Rollo, son of the local Earl Ragnvald, lived at Sunnmøre.

Tour guides are dressed in Viking outfits, and will tell the story as it is told in local folklore and the Icelandic writer Snorri Sturlason’s book "Heimskringla". You will be received at the harbour gate, in the vicinity of your ship by a Viking and his, or her, trelle. The guide will provide you with all practical information of the tour, and the trelle will be at your service.

The tour is undertaken by foot, with frequent pauses wherein you will be presented with stories from the Viking’s everyday life, their legal system, religion and Rollo's journey from being the outlaw son of the local Earl to become the ancestor of all European Royalty. You will have the oportunity to see some replicas of the most important vikingequipment. And along the way you will also get a taste of ancient traditions and food at a Søstrene Fryd.

The tour will end by the bronze statue of Rollo, which is a present from the French city of Rouen in order to commemorate the 1000 year anniversary for the founding of Normandy. He looks to the island of Giske where he lived.

This spot is a perfect starting point for own trips to the viewing point Fjellstua, or Aalesund city.
