What has been named ‘the world’s best road trip’ starts with a short tour of picturesque Kristiansund before continuing to Averøy, an island that sits at the entry of ‘The Road in the Ocean,’ The Atlantic Road. This route is one of Norway's most visited attractions and won the title of "Engineering Feat of the Century" in 2005.

Covering over 8 kilometres, this unique highway zigzags along the dramatic coastline, crossing over bridges that connect the series of small islands and islets that decorate the stunning landscape.

Stopping at the unique Kvernes Stave Church, we admire the magnificent view of the fjord and take a peek at the attractive baroque interior.

We’ll stop at a cosy tavern to tuck into a Norwegian specialty, Bacalao. Made from the region's famous klippfisk (salted and dried cod), this hearty stew is influenced by Mediterranean recipes and is a result of extensive trading with southern Europe in the 19th century.

Our scenic route ends with a brief tour around the 'City of Roses,' Molde, before rejoining our ship.
