Round trip to Molde & Atlantic Road from Åndalsnes
- Sightseeing and Guided Tours
This trip takes you from Åndalsnes via Molde to what is often described as the world’s most beautiful road, Norwegian Scenic Road the Atlantic Road. You have some time in Molde before and after the trip to the Atlantic Road.
Molde is famous for its view towards the “Molde Panorama”, the impressive row of mountains on the other side of the fjord. Located between the 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.
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. (Open Saturdays and Sundays in the spring and every day 1st June – 31st August.)
The area also offers a magnificent landscape, a rich birdlife, and great fishing opportunities.
