Mere og Romsdal

Mere og Romsdal is the northernmost county in Fjord Norway. The landscape is full of contrasts, with thousands of large and small islands and skerries, and mountain peaks towering to altitudes of up to 2000 meters. The Geirangerfjord, which was recently included on UNESCO’s World Heritage List, is the most famous tourist attraction in the county. The Trollstigen Road (near Andalsnes), the Eagle Road (0rnevegen) near Geiranger and the Atlantic Road between Molde and Kristiansund are all exhilarating routes offering unforgettable experiences. Other well- known attractions include the bird island of Runde near Alesund, the Atlantic Sea Park in Alesund and the salmon river Surna. There are also great opportunities

Attraction:

You can get a real bargain on one of the world’s best cruises by taking the ferry from Geiranger to Hellesylt on the Geirangerfjord. UNESCO recently added the Geirangerfjord to its World Heritage List. You can experience the fantastic scenic drive Golden Route from Geiranger to Andalsnes, trunk road RV63, past the jutting viewpoint rock of Dalsnibba, up to the Eagle's View (Ornesvingen), over the mountain pass to Valldal, down the hairpin bends of Trollstigen, passing the impressive mountain wall of Trollveggen. Take a train ride on one of Europe’s most impressive train lines - the Raumabanen Railway - an adventure for hiking in the Sunn more Alps. The three distinctive towns of Alesund, Molde and Kristiansund are also well worth a visit: Thanks to its rebuilding after the town fire of 1904, the Art Nouveau town of Alesund is famous for its distinctive and harmonious architecture. Molde, the city of roses, offers panoramic views of the fjords and the mountains. The town really livens up during the international jazz festival it hosts every July. Kristiansund is built on four islands right by the ocean. Bridges and tunnels connect the town to the mainland.

Take a trip to the fishing villages of Bjarnsund and Grip, which are really idyllic in summer, and to the lively fishing community of Ona with its 25 inhabitants that starts at the head of the Romsdalsfjord. One of the most dramatic stretches of road is the Atlantic Road between Molde and Kristiansund, the former town known for its Molde Jazz Festival. On an 15 km west of Kristiansund, stands Grip stave church. The county of More og Romsdal has more than its share of fine museums and a fabulous aquarium called the Atlantic Park. Alesund is unique not only for its harmonious Art Nouveau architecture, but for its beautiful ocean-side setting. The bird rock of Runde is required for any self-respecting bird lover or ornithologist.
