Description

This cycling tour starts in Molde and proceeds westwards to the island municipalities of Midsund, Sandøy and Aukra. Between the islands you can relax on ferries or express boats. The tour continues on the mainland to the fishing village of Bud, across small islands and
skerries along the Atlantic Road and ends with a bus trip through the Atlanterhavsveien tunnel (call 177 for time table) from Averøy to Kristiansund. Take the "Hurtigruten" (express coastal service) back to Molde or northwards to Trondheim.

Some parts of the cycling tour take you across flat islands right at the ocean's edge, with views of the high mountains on the mainland. There is very little traffic on may stretches, but a complete range of services. En route there are also lots of lovely detours you can take if you
want to see more of the area. The route, which totals 200 km, is cycled in stages with overnight stops along the way. Along the route you will pass a multitude of campsites, cabins, seahouses and attractive places to eat.
