Atlantic Sea Park, Alesund

#1 of 8 in Parks in Alesund
Zoo / Aquarium Nature / Park
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.

  • I like the outdoor surroundings, unfortunately l did not see much seals and other see animals which have been indicated to observe...the indoor big aquarium is great!
  • Very nice big aquarium. Focused on the local north Atlantic sea life. Tourist friendly.
  • A windy place to see the seals and penguin but the place is amazing with the fish and the coffee!!
  • Atlantic Sea-Park (Atlanterhavsparken) is one of Scandinavia's largest saltwater aquariums and one of the best tourist attractions in Ålesund. The exhibition area showcases marine life from all coasts of the Atlantic Ocean, particularly in the waters surrounding Norway. Species from various ocean depths are on display, including marine life from deep water habitats.
  • A Brilliant Aquarium which is definitely one of both best I have been too. All the water is taken from Fjords or the Sea and so the effect of the ocean is captured perfectly. There lighting conditions are also replicated so the fish feel as if they are at home. My only suggestion would be to make the Penguin pen larger. I lived in the Falklands amongst thousands of Penguins and I feel the enclosure could have been more "natural"
