Driving from Molde to Kristiansund is about 100km on
route 64 and would take two hours if you didn't stop.
Of course the aim typically is to stop and enjoy the amazing
views, so allow a half day for this trip. There are a
few alternatives but here is one suggestion.
Starting in Molde in the Rutebilholdeplassen where the
coaches are parked drive east towards the sea past Petrine's
Pizza and pub.
Follow the road until you have to bear right inland
beside the stream bed. Then take the first turning on
the right onto Strandgata. Keep right as you head out
of the town and you will be driving on Fannestrandvegen
along the sea.
The road becomes E39 and on the outskirts of the town
takes you to a roundabout or traffic circle, use the first
exit. e.g. the one heading east.
Keep going past the marina and onto the main road.
At the next round about go straight over. Do not
take the right hand turn that goes to the tunnel!
After that is another round about and here you turn to
the left, and leave the main E39 as you head north on the
This is a long and beautiful mountain drive to the
mountain tunnel. There is a toll at the tunnel which
is 3.5 km long.
Keep on the Rv64 road.
There is only one turning now on the road, a T-Junction
but it is very clearly signed posted to the right is Rv64
towards Kristiansund. Take this turning correctly then
stay on the road, and it will take you past all the famous
bridges of the Atlantic Road Norway.
When you are past the last of the amazing bridges and
tiny islands you will be back on the big islands and can
follow signs to Kristiansund as there is now only one way.
