The Atlantic Road zigzags and leaps across several small islands on eight low bridges that are built directly above and along the edge of the North Atlantic Ocean. The 8.2 kilometre journey passes through stunning coastal landscape and has not surprisingly become one of Norway’s most visited tourist destinations. We start our trip with a short sightseeing tour of the small city Kristiansund before continuing to the island of Averøy.

Here, we visit Kvernes Stave Church, believed built in the first part of the 13th century. Afterwards, we visit a local tavern where we tuck into the specialty of the house, “bacalao”, made from the region´s famous `klippfisk´ (dried cod) and other local ingredients. We then proceed along the Atlantic Road to Norway´s `City of Roses´, Molde, famous for its annual international jazz festival in July. We conclude our excursion with a short sightseeing tour of Molde before re-boarding Hurtigruten.
