Molde - the Atlantic Road - Kristiansund
This trip goes from Molde via the Atlantic Road - often described as the world’s most beautiful road – 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 road is a national tourist route.
On some of the departures you have the opportunity to leave the bus at Atlanterhavsvegen and take a later bus onwards. Other departures is a direct connection to the bus for Kristiansund, and you enjoy the view from the bus window. (Check the timetable below.)
If you stop at the Atlantic Road, you will get off the bus at Eldhusøya. 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.
Kristiansund is known for the dried and salted cod – “klippfisk” (literally “cliff fish”). 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.
