Experience the Atlantic Ocean Road – Havila excursion

The Atlantic Road by CH Visit Norway

The Atlantic Ocean Road is more than eight kilometres long, winding past the open sea, and over skerries and islets. No wonder it has been named one of the world’s most beautiful roads. Disembark in Kristiansund and rejoin the Havila ship in Molde on this excursion by bus.

This is an optional excursion which you can add to your Havila cruise booked through Fjord Travel Norway. The excursion will appear during the cruise booking process, with prices and details.

Kvernes Stave Church by Marco Spongano, Hurtigruten

Kvernes Stave Church

In Kristiansund you will be picked up at the quay by bus where the excursion starts with a city stroll in the klipfish capital. The town is built around the international klipfish industry, and while you are there you can sample one of the numerous dishes that can be made from klipfish: bacalao.

The Atlantic Ocean Road is also a popular place for car commercials, and more recently as the location of a car chase scene for the new James Bond film. This excursion sticks to a slower speed so you can enjoy the scenery, and there will be time for photo stops.

After a drive above the sea, you will drive through an undersea tunnel and arrive at Kvernes Stave Church. Stave churches are Norway’s most important contribution to European architecture. Kvernes Stave Church is richly decorated with leaf vines over walls and ceilings. The altarpiece and the rest of the church interior is characterised by the exuberant and colourful 17th century baroque style.

Finally, there is time for a short sightseeing in Molde, the City of Roses, before boarding the Havila Voyages ship again.

What our customers say:

  • On behalf of the group I would like to thank you and your colleagues for organizing our wonderful tour of Norway. Everything went very well including the weather, which was spectacular. We enjoyed all the hotels, the central locations you chose and the amenities, especially the lavish breakfasts. Three extra days in Oslo allowed us to tour the city at our leisure and to enjoy more of the important sights including the newly opened National Museum. The Norway in a Nutshell tour was amazing and made much easier by using your recommended porterage service between hotels in Oslo and Bergen. Both the train journeys and the boat trip were spectacular, and combined with a night in the beautiful Kviknes Hotel made for an unforgettable two days. We were very impressed by the Hurtigruten cruise, particularly the way they combined a working ship with a cruise ship, the comfortable accommodations, the food and service. It was fascinating to visit all the various ports, islands and fjords and the two included tours were excellent and informative. In the end we were glad to have the extra night in Kirkenes, to visit their lovely museum and take a trip to the Russian border. It was a good way to end the tour. Again, thank for staying with us through 2 years of pandemic postponements and changes. We certainly will recommend Fjord Travel in the future.

  • We just recently completed the Tromso, Northern Lights & Arctic Coast tour. I am writing to say what an amazing tour we had. Everything ran smoothly without an issue, the accommodation was fantastic and the tours were brilliant. We cannot fault the package at all. I would also like to thank Franziska and Lene, they both were fantastic in answering all my questions promptly, whilst booking the tour. Thank you for a wonderful and memorable holiday!

  • I wanted to thank everybody. We had a wonderful trip. Everything went well and fortunately we had the chance to see the lights while on the cruise. All my friends in Turkey would like to go on a similar trip. So I will be in touch with you. Thanks again and best wishes to all of you.
