Attend a penguin feeding show at Atlantic Sea Park, where you can observe a diverse marine life calling the northwestern Norwegian coastline its home. Part of a promontory reaching far into the sea, the park features seal and penguin areas, designed to resemble the animals' natural surroundings. The highlight of the park, though, is one of the largest seawater tanks in Europe, filled with cold-water fish native to this area. Pumped full of unfiltered seawater, this tank provides the setting for a daily show during which a diver hand-feeds the resident fish. Look for anglerfish, herring, spiked dogfish, cuckoo wrasse, conger eels, mackerel, yearling fish, crabs, sea anemones, sea urchins, and many other strange and wonderful creatures. Work out when and for how long to visit Atlantic Sea Park and other Alesund attractions using our handy Alesund travel planning tool.

Nice aquarium. Lots to see. We braved the wind and rain to see the otters, penguins and seals but mainly stayed inside. The car park is a bit of a walk in the rain but it was worth it. more »
