Here is a landscape full of contrasts! Welcome to great experiences in deep  fjords, steep mountains, lovely villages, traditional summer pasture farms and vibrant island communities await you. Charming and bustling Kristiansund is one of the most distinctive towns in Norway. Kristiansund is famous for klipfish and for its opera. For centuries, fresh cod have been salted, dried and processed to make klipfish. Enjoyed as a delicacy in Mediterranean countries and beyond, klip­fish has delighted many a palate. Kristiansund received spices and cultural impulses in return for its klipfish, and today our opera festival, international photography festival and fish are all important elements of our identity. Are you looking for unspoiled scenery and an active holiday? The coastal skerries are a paradise for kayaking and an eagle safari is a terrific experience. In the exceptionally beautiful Trollheimen mountains and the wild and steep Sunndalsfjella mountains, walkers will find both challenges and silence. Stay at a traditional summer pasture farm and enjoy a glimpse of an era you thought was long past. On coastal walking trails, you can breathe in fresh sea air – high up in the mountains. Or perhaps you would like to holiday at a lighthouse? Some of Norway’s best fishing rivers are in Nordmøre. Fish for trout and salmon in the Driva and Surna rivers – fishing permits are easy to buy. If you prefer cod and saithe, you can stay in traditional fishermen’s-style rorbu accommodation with deep-sea fishing available right on your doorstep. Right out at the ocean’s edge lies the island of Grip. In summer, boats run daily to this picturesque island with its small stave church, beautiful small houses and incredible history. The Atlantic Road has to be seen to be believed! It winds its way along the coast between Kristiansund and Bud/Molde. There are stopping places where you can take in the silence and admire the mighty ocean.The region shows a rich cultural life through its many festivals and arrangement. Amongst them are, The Culture Festival of Sunndal, Vårsøg consert festival, The Waterfall consert (fosskonserten), Norwegian Salomon festival  - and more!!
