The tour starts with a short sightseeing tour of Kristiansund (can also be done at the end of the tour) before continuing through the modern Atlantic tunnel to Averøy. The tour takes you through agricultural land and small villages on the lush island of Averøy before the landscape becomes more open as we approach the Atlantic Road.
The fantastic Atlantic Ocean Road is unique. Connecting the municipalities of Averøy and Eide, it took 6 years to complete. The road is 27,138 feet long and has a total of 8 bridges to connect each islet, the longest of which is 390 feet.
There will then be an opportunity to stop to take photos and admire the dramatic coast and the fantastic scenery around Kvernes stave church, which is situated on the sheltered side of Averøy. The beautiful, unique stave church, is situated on a hill with great views of the Kvernesfjord, is one of Norway’s youngest stave churches, dating from the 14th century.
Your return journey will bring you via Eide and Krifast back to Kristiansund.
