Travel the iconic Atlantic Highway that
links the population centres of Molde and
Kristiansund. This dramatic highway zigzags
across low bridges that jut out over the sea
and links together small coastal communities
of the area. The road was chosen as ‘Norway’s
construction of the century’ in 2005. This
7-day / 6-night fly-drive itinerary begins
and ends in the former Hanseatic League
trading port of Bergen. During the middle
ages, Bergen was one of the most important
cities of the Hanseatic League when Saxon
merchants settled in the quarter of the town
known as Bryggen. Today, this part of the
town, Stifeltsen Bryggen, is on Unesco’s list of
world heritage sites.
