The Atlanterhavsparken is one of the most particular aquariums in Europe. The Aquarium is built into the coastal landscape at Tueneset, the coastline west in Ålesund. Study the large landscape tanks that show life in sea along the Norwegian coast and in the Atlantic Ocean and remember this is the same sealife as outside of here.

Be fascinated by the hectic activity in the largest tank when the diver enters to hand-feed the fish every day at 13 o'clock (from June - August  also at 15.30).

The Aquarium has a spectacular outdoor area with a view directly to the Atlantic Ocean. In the spacious outdoor area there is a separate penguin park. The penguins is fed every day at 14.30. There is also a popular big Waterplaypark and a gigantic Octopus sculpture, perfect for the children to play in. New for 2015 is the Sealbay with an underwater observatory that shows the seals life in a spectacular way. The Harbour Seals has the perfect home in Eourope`s biggest sealpool. Almost 6000 squaremeter and 15 million liters of fresh saltwater gives them the feeling og a wild life, but still with free food. Every day at 15.00 they will be served dinner. This is real experiences in real environments!

The aquarium has a cosy café perfect for lunch, coffee or cake while you enjoy the exciting view. In the souvenir shop you'll find lots of items you can bring home as a memory of The Atlanterhavsparken.
