Ålesund - Molde - the Atlantic Road - Kristiansund
This trip takes you from Ålesund via Molde to what is often described as the world’s most beautiful road, the Atlantic Road, and Kristiansund.
If you are travelling Monday – Friday, you have some time in Molde to walk around this charming town between the fjord and the hills. Molde offers a magnificent view towards the fjord and the mountains on the other side, and has a multitude of shops, cafés, etc.
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 road is a national tourist route.
On this round trip, the bus stops at Eldhusøya, where 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. The area also offers a magnificent landscape, a rich bird life and great fishing opportunities.

The city’s speciality is the dish bacalao and dishes with “klippfisk” are served in all the restaurants and most of the cafés in town. You also find a snackbar that serves another one of Kristiansund's specialities - real fish and chips, locally called "fishan". The town has a rich cultural offering and a selection of shops and cafés.
