This trip goes from Kristiansund via Norwegian Scenic Route the Atlantic Road - often described as the world’s most beautiful road – to Molde and back to Kristiansund!
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.
On weekdays you will get off the bus at Eldhusøya by the Atlantic Road. Here you can take a walk on the suspended walkway around the islet. The walkway consists of latticework (“grids”) “floating” above the terrain, and is suitable for or anyone. The service building at Eldhusøya, with its distinct architecture that falls into the terrain, has a café and toilets. (Open Saturdays and Sundays in the spring and every day 1st June – 31st August.) The area also offers a magnificent landscape, a rich bird life and great fishing opportunities.
In Molde you have some time to look around this charming little town by the fjord. Molde is famous for its view towards the “Molde Panorama”, the impressive row of mountains on the other side of the fjord. Located between sea and mountains and with a short distance from the one to the other, you can explore the fjord, the town center and the mountains behind the town in a short time. In the summer, the town lives up to its name “Town of roses”, and in July the famous Molde International Jazz Festival takes place.
The trip back to Kristiansund goes via Batnfjorden and Frei. Along the route you can enjoy the beautiful mountain and fjord landscape.
