TravelPod Member ReviewsAtlanten Motel Kristiansund
There was nothing wrong with the receptionist or our welcome. The cabin was clean and roomy. It's a caravan park cabin - so what we expected. And a heater too! Breakfast was tasty and sumptuous!

It was quite amusing watching other passengers trying ...

We set off on our journey, winding through the streets with their colourful houses, before we came to a long tunnel; in fact it was about 5.7km long, so not ideal for anyone who was claustrophobic. The tunnel went right underneath the Atlantic Ocean and reached a depth of 250m, making it one of the deepest undersea tunnels in the world.

Road, ferry and tunnel charges mounting, (based on the length of your vehicle), we elected to go back another way and found a beautiful free camp overlooking a fjord at Gaustad. The toll system here is "user pays" that seems fair, I guess, but mounts up ...
We were up, dressed, fed & raring to go as we entered the town of Kristiansund. This would be the northern most point of our cruise. The town is spread over 5 islands, if I remember correctly. So entering the port meant navigating through these small islands. There were colorful, traditional Norwegian homes all over the hills mixed with contemporary styles. In the middle of one island, the first we passed, stood an old stone church, stone ...
