KRISTIANSUND – FLOATING IN THE ATLANTIC OCEAN (c) Terje Rakke Nordic Life AS

Kristiansund

Kristiansund is situated at the very edge of the Atlantic ocean and oozes of charm and bustle. Colourful houses surround the lively harbour. The city has four islands and named Tahiti and Marokko; a sign of the international klipfish trade in the old days. Klipfish is dried, salted cod and was the reason for the great wealth in the town back in the old days. Today Kristiansund`s most important industry is oil and gas.
Cruise ships berth directly in the town center, only steps from shopping, restaurants and attractions. You may walk easily everywhere. The mail attraction in this area is the Atlantic Road, situated on the island of Averøy - a 30 minutes drive from the harbour. The road is voted " The world`s best roadtrip" by "The Guardian" and is a stunning experience in both sunny weather and a stormy day. Try the Sundbåten boat to see the 4 islands from the sea side. The boat goes directly to the Norwegian Klifish museum. Grip island is also worth visiting.
