Fjord Norway Møre og Romsdal ÅLESUND

Mystic marble caves & the Atlantic Road

Overview

This trip combines the experience of the beautiful Bergtatt marble caves and what is said to be the world’s most beautiful road, the Atlantic Road. You also have some time to look around Molde, the town between mountains and the fjord.

The marble caves are part of Naas Kalksteinbrudd, a working marble mine beyond the usual. In some of the tunnels that are no longer being excavated, a visitor’s center – Bergtatt (literally “taken (in) by the mountain) - has been opened. These caves function as a concert venue, as well as an attraction in itself.

The visit includes a boat tour on the caves’ crystal clear, captivatingly illuminated water. Well inside the mountain, you will be offered a drink of the pure mountain water directly from the mountain wall. After the boat tour you will visit the concert hall to see a video about the history of the mine and its current operation.

You then go on the the Atlantic Road. With its location at the edge of the mighty ocean, the Atlantic Road is as beautiful in sunshine and calm weather as in full storm and rain.
The Atlantic Road connects Averøy with the mainland via a series of small islands and islets spanned by a total of eight bridges over 8274 meters. The road is a national tourist route.

On this round trip, the bus stops at Eldhusøya, where there is a suspended walkway around the islet. The walkway consists of latticework (“grids”) “floating” above the terrain, and is suitable for or anyone.

The service building at Eldhusøya, with its distinct architecture that falls into the terrain, has a café and toilets. (Open Saturdays and Sundays in the spring and every day 1st June – 31st August.)

There are two return options. The first option gives you a few minutes at Eldhusøya to take in the landscape before the return bus arrives and takes you back to Molde the same route as when you arrived. The later return gives you about an hour at the Atlantic Road, but involves a longer return trip to Molde along a different route, and involving several bus changes. Consequently, the return from Molde to Ålesund will later as well.
 

Departure from: Ålesund bus terminal, track 4
