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.
