The rest of the islands have ferry connections to the mainland. The Haramsfjorden, Vatnefjorden and Romsdalsfjorden all flow through the municipality.

Haram offers an abundance of experiences, from mountain hamlets in the east to the islands in the west. The view of the mountain world of Sunnmøre and Romsdal from the top of Skjerdingen, the highest mountain in the area, also includes the coastal areas. It is no surprise that people who visit Haram are fascinated by its beautiful and intricate nature, which they remember for a long time.

Haram is on its way to becoming the largest industrial township in Møre and Romsdal. The industries are varied, with a major focus on maritime-related activities. You are quite welcome to visit the North Islands, where the visible roots of the old culture clearly lead back to ancient times. And try your luck with a fishing pole in the well-stocked ocean, fjords and lakes.

Haram has nearby connections to the national highway system. The trip from Ålesund or from Vigra airport, by car or by the fast boat, is not any less of en experience either.

SUNNMØRE

Sunnmøre is the southernmost traditional district of the western Norwegian. Its main city is Ålesund. Though it is one of the three traditional districts in Møre og Romsdal, Sunnmøre is home to more than half the population of the county. The district is made up of mainland as well as several large islands such as Gurskøy and Hareidlandet, plus many small islands.

There are many local newspapers throughout Sunnmøre, as well as one that aims to cover the entire region, published from Ålesund, called Sunnmørsposten.

THE SUNNMØRS ALPS

It is a great pieature for us to welcome you to our "kingdom" - in the centre of Northern Europe´s fjord and alpine country. The region is spectacular, stretching from deep-blue fjords, via verdant valleys with emerald-green slopes way up to the highest wild peaks with their white glaciers. This is not just a picture, but reality, a landscape which you can become fond of.

Majestic peaks and a rugged alpine massif distinguish the Sunnmørs Alps from other mountain areas. Mountains plunge vertically into the fjord from a height of 1.500 - 1.600 metres and from the summit of Jakta at 1.588 metres, ther is a perpendicular fall of 1.821 metres to the bottom of the fjord. This will give you some idea of the enormous dimensions between the summits and the seabed below the waters of the fjords.
