Atlantic Sea Park, Alesund

#1 of 6 in Zoos & Aquariums in Western Norway
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.

  • Many interesting exhibits. Three languages available for almost all of the information available (Norwegian, German and English). The live demonstrations were well presented and educational without being too dumbed down. I'd recommend a stop here for anyone visisiting Ålesund.
  • Nice park with lots of sea life to admire from around Norway. We also watched the diver going to feed the fish in the big tank, which was great to watch. We also ate a good lunch here. Staff was friendly and helpful. Bit strange the last bus in summer goes back already so early, but that is something the park can't help.
  • Beatiful place to get a sight of what swims in the Norwegian Sea!
  • Nice place, but price od top high for this short trip.
  • Nice aquarium with big variety of local fish
