MOLDE is known as the town of roses. Situated by the Romsdalsfjord, Molde is renowned for its beautiful surroundings and wonderful views. The most famous viewpoint is Varden, with its extraordinary vista of 222 mountain peaks. Here you will also find Romsdalsmuseet, one of Norway’s largest and most comprehensive folk museums. Don’t miss out on a trip to the Atlantic Road, equally impressive both in sunny and stormy weather. Visit the marble caves or sail on a replica Viking ship to the old fishing village of Håholmen.
