Alesund is a town in Norway, and it’s one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country. It has a beautiful harbor with lots of architecture, shops and restaurants, history and more!
Alesund was founded in 1874 by Captain Eriksen who was looking for a place to build his shipyard. He built several different factories along with houses for his workers. These buildings still exist today including one that was built as an orphanage back in 1877 but now it houses an art gallery called Pingvinen (The Penguin). This building was named after Alesund’s famous penguin museum which is located just down the street from this building!
Another great thing about visiting Alesund is that there are many things you can do on your own time outside of sightseeing such as hiking through forested areas or exploring other parts like nearby lakes where kayakers will be able to take advantage of this during summer months when they’re not busy working at their job sites around town.

Nordfjordeid is a municipality in the county of Sogn og Fjordane, Norway. It is located in the traditional district of Nordfjord, and it borders Sogndal to the east and Ørsta to the south, along with other municipalities such as Selje (in Rogaland county), Brække and Rauma (both in Hordaland).
The municipality lies on a number of islands and skerries in an archipelago, with about 70 islands altogether. The largest island is Vågsøy with about 2000 inhabitants, followed by Otterøya and Skorpa which have about 1000 inhabitants each. There are also some small fishing villages along the coast such as Lekanger and Gartlandet, but most people live in towns like Eidsvik on Vågsøy or Hjelmeland on Otterøya.
The municipality of Fjordeid was established on 1 January 1838 (see formannskapsdistrikt). The old municipality was identical to the Fjordane county (and later district) with the same name. In 1964, a small part of Fjordeid was transferred to Selje municipality and another small part went to Ørsta.
The municipality is named after the island of Vågsøy. The Old Norse form of the name was “Vaðsey”. The first element is probably derived from the word “váð” which means “path”, or it could be related to the word for “fjord”.
The last element is “ey” which means “island”.
The coat of arms was granted on 18 January 1986. It shows a gold-colored anchor on a blue field, with two silver waves below it. The anchor symbolizes the importance of fishing in the municipality, while the waves represent the ocean surrounding Vågsøy.
Flam is a village in the municipality of Aurland in Sogn og Fjordane county, Norway. The town is located at the innermost part of the fjord Flåmsdalen, along the Nærøyfjord.
The area surrounding Flam has been inhabited since Viking times and there are many interesting places to visit in this region including:
- Flam Church (Flam kirke) — A gothic church built around 1150 which was restored several times throughout its history including during 1842–1853 when it became one of Norway’s best preserved churches due to its use as a grain warehouse during World War II by occupying German forces who were forced out after being defeated by Allied forces led by General Bernard Montgomery who had landed on Norwegian soil on 9 April 1945;
- Flåm Museum — An old building that used to be part of “Flåm Gaard” where farmers lived during summertime;
