Overview
Details

The Atlantic Road was in 2010 awarded as the most beautiful bike ride in Norway, by votes from the Norwegian website ut.no! The ride can be done both from Kristiansund and Molde.

There can be some heavy traffic during the peak season and the trip is not really suitable for the youngest children to ride alone. The trip is beautiful and scenic.

From Kristiansund:


Suggestion: Kristiansund-Averøy-Kårvåg-Vevang-Farstad-Bud
Starting in Kristiansund, you must jump on the bus. The bus has its own bike racks and after only 10 minutes through the Atlantic tunnel you reach the island Averøy. The goal for the first leg is Karvåg - which is the start of Atlantic Road.

From Molde:


Suggestion: Molde-Eide-Vevang-Kårvåg-Farstad-Bud
You can choose to go by bus from Molde to Eide, and then start biking from Vevang. It is also possible to go by bus from Molde to the fishing village Bud.

What to see:
Vevang-Kårvåg: The Atlantic road is a 8 km stretch of road that winds its way from island to island, connected by eight bridges. The most spectacular bridge is Storseisundbrua. Stop at Eldhusøya, and try the walk around the island. Håholmen is also an attraction you should take the time to visit, in summer there are departures every hour to the beautiful Håholmen. Experience the Viking story of the norwegian adventurer Ragnar Torseth at the Saga Siglar hall. You can also stop for other activities if you have time: Strømsholmen Diving Centre offers in the summer fishing trips, diving trips and seal safaris. Sveggvika offers activities such as kayak several times a day during the summer. If you want to go fishing on your own, you can safely try your luck standing on the fishing bridges on the Atlantic Road.

Farstad: Take a detour on Farstad coastal path, six kilometers of lovely and hilly landscape with beatuiful view over the sea. The path leads you to Nordneset Lighthouse.

Bud: In the 16th and 17th century Bud was the biggest trading post between Bergen and Trondheim. The last meeting of the national council in Norway was held here in 1533 under the leadership of Archbishop Olav Engelbrektsson. Today, Bud is still an active and charming fishing village with several good fish restaurants and an interesting coastal fort and museum; Bud museum.
