Kristiansund - the Atlantic Road - Molde - Ålesund
This trip goes from Kristiansund via the Atlantic Road - often described as the world’s most beautiful road – to Molde and Ålesund.
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. 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.
Note! If you are travelling on a Saturday, you have no stop at the Atlantic Road but will be able to enjoy the spectacular view from the bus.
In Molde you have some time 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.
From Molde you travel via Vestnes and Sjøholt to Ålesund. This part of the trip includes a ferry trip that offers a great view back on Molde and to the surrounding mountains. Along the rest of the route you can enjoy the beautiful mountain and fjord landscape.
Ålesund is the largest town in Møre and Romsdal county. The town is known for its art noveau buildings and offers a wide selection of shops, restaurants/cafés and actitivies. If you have time, you must walk up to the Aksla “town mountain” and Fjellstua. There are stairs up from the town centre, with view points and benches on the way up. From the top you can see the whole town, in addition to the fjord and islands around Ålesund. Another popular place to visit is the aquarium at Atlanterhavsparken.

(The tours are set up so that the buses, ferries and boats connect.)
