Description

The Sundbåten boat - The world’s oldest public transport service in uninterrupted use. Part of Kristiansund’s cultural heritage and the world’s oldest means of public transport still in use. The first passenger boat service started up in 1876. A new boat - "Angvik" - was taken into service in 2005, and now service the harbour along with "Rapp" built in 1958. These small passenger ferries depart from the Piren pier at the foot of Kaibakken hill and run between the four «lands», as the four areas of Kristiansund are called.

A roundtrip with the Sundbåten is a great way to experience Kristiansund. Explore different parts of the town with churches, galleries, klipfish museum and a vivid harbour life. Enjoy one of Kristiansunds strongest cultural monument at a very low price. Frequent departures on a daily basis (Sundays only from May-October). A round trip takes approx. 15-20 minutes and it makes a nice sightseeing tour of the harbour and surrounding area.

On request the Sundbåten is available for charter, ie for groups. Guided tours, city walks and even more complex arrangements through the whole region is arranged on request.
