Atlantic Sea Park, Alesund

(4.2/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • An absolute must when you are in Ålesund. Impressive with some foe everyone, both the feeding of the fish, penguins and seals. Nice children's playground outside, nice to sit outside and eat and enjoy the scenery.

  • Nice and good place for a Sunday picnic. Suitable for children of all ages, so first on the fish, so the feed in large appeal.. before it was on the second floor the snake holding.. activity room could have had more frequent open on a Sunday, when we missed out on that. And got some disappointed children. Clean and nice toilet.

  • Atlantic Park is a large aquarium that lie on the Tueneset to the West of Ålesund. Hovudutstillinga is of the fish from the beach, not colorful Nordic species. In addition, where pingvinar, selar crabs and slangar. In the task room can take a fishing on crabs and starfish and kråkebollar. Exhibition ane are nice, interesting and good information. Lokala is dark, so that fiskane shows well in the dei enlightened akvaria. Borna really liked to play with the water in the outdoors, it was very nice to stave off water with locks. There was too little information inside the Aquarium about feeding times and opening hours to the activity room. Saknar signs about this. Sakna also microphone and høgtalar on the foringa of oterane. With some simple measures had this could have been a much better attraction. We drove the car from Ålesund. It was barely with parkeringsplassar, and 250 metres to go from parkeringa to the entrance. In January was the Aquarium is dark and cold, but it's well so that's Cold is better than kokande ' as in the proverb after Ivar Aasen.

  • 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"
  • A great aquarium. Nice shows, from feeding to diving, nice diversity and outdoors and a good price tag. A little bit small but overall a very enjoyable experience.
  • Technically it is possible to walk there from the downtown, though there is public transportation and the tourist "hop on / off" bus that will take you there. Unlike other aquariums, the Atlantic Sea Park focuses on local sea creatures, so you're not going to see a huge variety of fish, but it's very well built and structured with an hour or two of things to see at minimum, including seals, and hands-on crab, starfish, and anemone interaction for the kids.
  • Awesome place to just hang out and see all the different wildlife from around the area. Including outside seal pool and penguin habitat.
  • Great place, especially for kids. There is an activity room for learning all about the sea life!
