The town of Kristiansund is situated right on the coast of the Northwest region and has magnificent views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Atlantic Road as its nearest neighbour. A trip around the city's four islands, also known as ‘lands’ – Innlandet (the inland), Kirkelandet (church land), Nordlandet (north land) and Gomalandet – offer the chance to experience bustling harbour life, distinctive surroundings and unique culinary experiences.
Kristiansund goes by many names: ‘the Atlantic town’, ‘the town floating in the sea’ and ‘the town of klippfisk (salted dried cod)’. Pay this intimate and welcoming town a visit and experience its wonderful urban atmosphere. The autumn promises crisp, fresh air, and at times it even rains sideways. It’s remarkable to experience the elements in Kristiansund, right on the edge of the coast of the Northwest region, with breath-taking views of the open sea, with the Atlantic Ocean as its nearest neighbour.
