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

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 stroll in Molde, the City of Roses, before boarding the Havila Voyages ship again.

  • 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!

  • Thank you for assisting us with our trip to Norway. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Kirkenes and the Snow Hotel. The arrangements you made for us were perfect. The lodging was comfortable and the excursions were fun. Tom and I rarely use the services of a travel company when we travel; you enriched our trip and made the planning easy.
