What to expect

This tour starts in the beautiful “City of Roses” Molde, which was given this name for its numerous parks and public gardens. You will be traveling by bus along various fjords and on the famous Atlantic Ocean Road, visiting traditional villages and stopping for photos at sites offering panoramic views.

You will start your day traveling towards the traditional fishing village of Bud. Along the way you will pass the Romsdalsfjord, the Malmefjord and the Elnesvågen area which is famous for producing the delicious “Jarlsberg” cheese. In Bud you will visit the Ergan Coastal Fortress from WWII. Ergan offers you a glimpse into the dramatic history of Bud, as well as beautiful views towards the village and over the ocean.

Your journey continues along the infamous “bay of shipwrecks”, Hustadvika. You will notice how the landscape changes from a fertile countryside to rugged, windblown islets and reefs, before you get to the Atlantic Ocean Road. This impressive road counts eight bridges, including one that is 23 meters high. These bridges seem to defy nature as they wind their way along the archipelago in a spectacular zig-zag pattern. You will soon understand why this road was named the world’s most scenic drive by “The Guardian” and awarded the title of “Norwegian Construction of the Century”.

Your will stop is at Eldhusøya which is in the very middle of the Atlantic road. Here you can enjoy a cup of coffee or a local pastry, or walk around the entire islet on a newly constructed walking path. This 10-minute stroll offers an amazing view over the wild and open Atlantic Ocean and is accessible for everyone. On a clear day you might even spot a whale or a seal on the horizon.

After driving across the Atlantic Ocean Road, your journey goes back to Molde via the renowned marble quarries of Eide. Before going back to the meeting point of the tour, you will make a final photo stop on the top of Mount Varden which offers a spectacular view of the city and the 222 peaks on the other side of the Romsdalsfjord.
