Cruise ship visit to Molde

by lespoll

I shall be visiting Molde during the last week of May 2010.I shall be part of a party of 6 ages ranging from 50 to 80. The ship only docks for about 4 hours. Can anyone suggest what would be the best way of seeing as much of the local scenery as possible during that time. Where is it possible to get a map of the area perhaps showing walking paths.

I haven't been to Molde myself, but I guess this webpage could give you some ideas http://www.visitmolde.com/en/.

I lived in Molde some years ago. The town itself is not very interesting. It was destroyed during WWII and rebuilt in a hurry without much architectonic finesse. The surroundings are spectacular. With only 4 hours, it's limited how far off you can stray. A visit to the view-point above town, is a must.

I guess you'll get a map at the tourist office, located at the central market square.

Have a great time!

it is the best to take the tours that are offered by the cruiseship, because Molde is not very interesting. Modern town, some shopping, high prices.

There are 2 things that I remember from Molde:
1) The excellent panoramaview of the mountains raising out of the water in the large bay close to Molde, you will see this best from the ship, when arriving and departing.
2)Atlanterhavenvejen the Atlantic-bridge,thats a row of 7 bridges connecting lots of islands along the coast close to Averoy-island and this is what they will also offer you as a tour onboard I am sure. It is worth it, the main bridge is really breathtaking.
---
The main problem is that the distance is quite far and when you have just 4 hours I would not dare to make this tour by a private taxi, you will be on the safe side with the (expensive) tours onboard of the ship !
The village of Molde is nothing special except for the view in my opinion !

Many thanks for replying to my question. I have noted the links that have been mentioned and will do some more research on them. It looks as if we will most likely just take a local walk to get a view from some high point or "raid the bank" and book one of the on board cruise tours that are on offer.

Sea Rafting - The ultimate experience

by knerten

If you haven't tried it yet, you should. This is an exiting adventure. Cruise flat sea at 50+ knots or jump the waves for a weightless sensation. Pricy, but well worth it. All provided: Thermal suit, goggles and gloves, no need to bring anything. The suits are really thermal, don't wear too many layers underneath.

"Ferry, mountain and sea"

I flew for an hour from Oslo to come to Molde-a heavenly place characterized by the natural beauty with the snow-covered mountains, the deep-Atlantic ocean and the unpredictable climate. I like the combination of the sea´and mountains. I also like the changeable weather which gives me opportunities to take many different pictures-sun, rain or snow.

I could not imagine that this beautiful city was bombarded and destroyed nearly 70 year's ago by invaders. 92% of the city houses were demolished. The Royal family fled to Molde and the Government was temporary seated in this city. The Royal family in the midst of bombardment, fled to the forest of a hill of Molde (see new things to do "King's Birch Tree").

"Molde 8 pm"

I took this photo from my hotel balcony in the evening. How would the weather like tomorrow? That was my thought at that moment.

Norway suffered a lot during the last war and people's aspiration for peace has been real and very strong. The Nobel Prize for Peace is awarded in Oslo every year. As people experienced the pain of war, it seems to me Norwegians' desire to contribute to peace has been so deeply rooted in the heart of the people.

"Rose, blue sea and mountains"

The town is small and quiet. But the ferry trafic is rather heavy. You never miss seeing ferries sailing smoothly in different directions. People are not stressed and you often see people of all ages are talking on various corners of the town.

Home sweet home....

Hurtigruten ship "Trollfjord" leaving Molde at 7pm on 17 October. Looking westward from the top floor of my office building. Rica Seilet Hotel to the left. The Eastern end of Otrøya island to the right at the back. Molde Stadium barely visible in the bottom left.

Molde Stadium, also known as "Røkkeløkka" (Røkke's playground), named after Kjell Inge Røkke, once Norway's richest, who donated this stadium to his hometown. Home to Molde Fotballklubb (Molde Football Club), also once one of Norway's best teams, still in the first league, but hopelessly lagging behind...

Rica Seilet Hotel to the right and the ferry M/F Tresfjord (in the centre) coming in to dock at Molde from Vestnes (in the background) .

Rica Seilet Hotel. Supposedly inspired by the Burj Al Arab in Dubai, this not even close to being a bleak copy. Actually, a closer investigation reveals that the shape is part of the company logo of Kjell Kosberg, the architect behind it. Talk about building a monument to yourself without paying for it. Anyway, the building makes for interesting photos...

Hurtigruten, also known as the Norwegian coastal express, has more than 100 years of service between Bergen and Kirkenes along the west coast of Norway. The route is recognised as one of Europe's biggest attractions and has been internationally acknowledged as the "world's most beautiful sea voyage". The fleet consists of 11 ships, here represented by the vessel "Kong Harald", seen docking at Molde harbour. Both northbound and southbound ships dock at my hometown during daylight (in summer, now it's close to winter and daylight is less), which makes it very convenient for photographing them.

Does this picture need words?
