What has been called ‘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.

Over 5 miles, this highway zigzags along the dramatic coastline over bridges that connect the succession of small islands and islets that decorate the stunning landscape.

At the unique Kvernes Stave Church, take a peek at the attractive Boroque interior and admire the magnificent views of the fjord.

Then, we’ll stop at a cozy tavern to enjoy bacalao, a Norwegian specialty. This hearty stew is made from the region´s famous klippfisk (dried cod) and other local ingredients.

Our scenic ride ends with a brief tour around Molde, called the ‘City of Roses’, before rejoining our ship.
