On this trip you will first have some time in Molde before the trip continues to the mystic marble caves at Bergtatt.
Molde is famous for its view towards the “Molde Panorama”, the impressive row of mountains on the other side of the fjord. In the summer, the town lives up to its name “Town of roses”, and in July the famous Molde International Jazz Festival takes place.
From Molde, the bus goes to the stop Brandsæter. There you will be picked up and taken to Bergtatt. After the visit you will be driven back to the bus stop to catch the bus via Kårvåg to Kristiansund.
The marble caves are part of Naas Kalksteinbrudd, a working marble mine beyond the usual. In some of the tunnels that are no longer being excavated, a visitor’s center – Bergtatt (literally “taken (in) by the mountain) - has been opened. These caves function as a concert venue, as well as an attraction in itself.
The visit includes a boat tour on the caves’ crystal clear, captivatingly illuminated water. Well inside the mountain, you will be offered a drink of the pure mountain water directly from the mountain wall. After the boat tour you will visit the concert hall to see a video about the history of the mine and its current operation.
The return to Kristiansund goes via the Atlantic Road and Kårvåg. With its location at the edge of the mighty ocean, the Atlantic Road is as beautiful in sunshine and calm weather as in full storm and rain.
The Atlantic Road connects Averøy with the mainland via a series of small islands and islets spanned by a total of eight bridges over 8274 meters. The Atlantic Road – Atlanterhavsvegen - is a Norwegian Scenic Route. Norwegian Scenic Routes are selected roads that run through landscapes with unique natural qualities, along coasts and fjords, mountains and waterfalls. The routes are intended as alternatives to the main roads, and the drive itself should be an enjoyable experience. On the Norwegian Scenic Routes web page you can read more about Norwegian Scenic Route Atlanterhavsvegen.
Note! There is no stop at the Atlantic Road, but you can enjoy the view from your bus seat.

(The tours are set up so that the buses, ferries and boats connect.)
Tours cannot be booked for public holidays and during holiday periods such as Easter and Christmas due to deviations in the timetables. The timetable shown is valid for the periods when the tour is bookable.
