The Atlanterhavsparken is one of the most particular aquariums in Northern Europe, and has been 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 see what goes on in the skerries, in the depths of the Storfjord, under the docks, and in the saltwater currents. This is The Norwegian Aquarium.

Be fascinated by the hectic activity in the largest tank when the diver enters to hand-feed the fish everyday at 13 o'clock (from June - August  also at 15.30). During the weekends you can join in and feed the fish in the open pools at 15, and it is also possible to feed the crabs several times during the day throughout the year.

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 are being 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 summer 2014 is the sealbaywith an underwater observatory which shows the seals life in a spectacular way. 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.
