Welcome

Vestnes, in the heart of Western Norway, is known for its beautiful surroundings, with open fjords and tree-covered slopes. It is an ideal place for an exciting and rewarding family holiday. It is also an excellent place to be stationed if you want to take day-trips to tourist-attractions like Trollstigen, Geiranger and Atlanterhavsvegen. From Vestnes it takes you less than an hour to get to each of the towns Molde, Ålesund or Åndalsnes. Molde is every summer the host of an international jazz festival for a week in july.

To the east of Vestnes lies Gjermundnes Head, which in days gone by was a Viking settlement. Nowadays, the site is occupied by the county´s agricultural college. At the end of the fjord known as "Tresfjord", in the little village of the same name, lies Tresfjord church, built in 1828. During the summer months there are guided tours both here and also at the local museum, a short distance from the church. The museum is a collection of old buildings and artefacts, both domestic and agricultural, which gives an excellent insight into former lifestyles in the area.

Vestnes is known for the many Icelandic horses. To go horseback-riding in the mountains is a great experience. Take a look at these web-sites for more information: Stall Kjersem, Stall Kjellbotn and Vestnes Islandshestforening.

Our forests and mountains are easily accessible both on foot and in some places, by car. For those who are looking for a challenge, a trip in the mountains will prove a rewarding experience.

On the shores of the fjords you can find idyllic spots where you can swim or fish or simply take life easy. Take a boat trip out to one of the many good fishing grounds and feel the tug of the coalfish on your line!

If you come with your own boat, you will discover that Vestnes is ideally suited for boating and makes an excellent base town for longer trips to well known places such as Bjørnsund or Runde.

Vestnes, as a council area, is centrally placed in the county of Møre and Romsdal. Its scenery is both beautiful and varied: a long shoreline borders fertile county villages which in their turn are watched over by mighty mountains whose lakes are teeming with trout and other fish.

Vestnes is well known for its long traditions in the boatbuilding industry. Boatbuilding is still an important part of daily life here and orders for new boats are regulary received from home and abroad.

Agriculture, with emphasis on cattle and sheep, still retains a high profile in these parts.

In the little villages which make up "Vestnes Council Area", there are several choirs and instrumental groups, who carry on the long-established cultural traditions of the area. However, cultural activities are not limited to music alone ; there are countless small groups who are engaged in all aspects of culture - from art to sport, from homely handicrafts to theatre. Needless to say, all age groups are represented in these activities.

Most of the services which you will need when you come to Vestnes, can be found at Helland, where there is a good variety of shops, cafes and accomodation.
