Run by: Best Served Scandinavia

Reference number: 102127

From: £1195.00

Holiday overview

The Atlantic Road, which links the islands between Molde and Kristiansund along Norway's west coast, is considered by many to be one of the most spectacular coastal roads in the world. At just five miles long, it zigzags across eight low-lying bridges that jut out above the sea. In the middle is Molde, a former trading post on the northern shore of Romsdaldfjord, one of the most beautiful fjords in Norway. It makes a perfect base from which to explore the Atlantic Road and the various attractions of the region. This short break combines three nights in Molde with a stay in the heart of historic Bergen.

Holiday itinerary

Days 1-2: Bergen

Fly from the UK to Bergen and check into your hotel, a delightful brick-fronted accommodation run by the descendants of renowned composer Edvard Grieg. Once you've settled in, you'll have two days to explore the city, taking in the history of the Hanseatic Bryggen wharf, wandering between pretty parks and winding cobblestone streets and taking the funicular to the summit of Fløyen Mountain for views across the city and its mountainous surrounds.   

Day 3: Molde

Fly from Bergen to Molde where you'll collect your hire  before checking in to the Hotell Molde Fjordstuer on the edge of the quay in the centre of town. The outside pub-restaurant makes an idyllic spot for quayside dining as the boats come and go, while tables at the hotel's à la carte seafood restaurant are highly sought after in summer.
