Molde is called the town of Roses but I think that the town is not worth the visit. But the view from Molde to the hundreds of mountains is really great and that is a good reason to go there.There is also a famous jazzfestival every year in Molde.I went there on a Hurtigrutenship in 2002.more
Molde was badly bombarded in 1940 by invaders. The King and Crown Princess and Government members were evacuated from Oslo to Molde. The Government was temporarily seated in this city. The Royal family members hid themselves under birch trees in the forest.That is why this monument was established called "King Birch Tree".more
There are both easy and hard hiking alternatives in and around Molde. The area north of Molde have well kept hiking trails leading to a number of fishing-lakes. You should purchase a state fishing licence to fish in these lakes, it can be purchased at any post office and in some sportsgear shops. For 2005 the price is 30 NOK for a single day, 75...more

I still remember the good old days, before Dolly Dimple's turned into a nationwide chain...when there was only one restaurant, in Sandnes, back in 1987...that's when they still made great pizza. I had the "Italian" style, thin crust pizza. 120 kroner for a thin loaf with a sticky topping. Sorry, guys, this is not my cup of tea.My friend tried the...more
With high meat prices in Norway I usually avoid fast food kebabs, because you'll usually be served some sort of processed meat, meat loaf or, if you're lucky, minced meat. Here, too, but nonetheless, the kebabs here are excellently made. BTW, this outlet is owned by the same guy who owns the fast food and pizza restaurant at the town square.more
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...more
This is a buy by the bulk tea and coffee store that also sells local produce, cheeses, cakes and syrups, and often they offer free samples, like this day. This store is rather pricy, but the quality is excellent. NOK 80-100 for a small piece of cheese, or a medium sized bottle of homemade syrup.more
You'll find Fjordland shelves in most Norwegian food stores, but the shelf at Mega has the biggest selection. Fjordland is a range of ready-made heat-and-serve products that taste great, and most food of this kind does not. With a wide range of traditional Norwegian dishes, this is a must-try when in Norway. Somewhat on the pricy side, but well...more
For the more exotic cravings, this is the place to shop. A delightful mixture of Indian, Thai, Chinese, Middle-East and international food can be found here. The selection is not wide, but it should satisfy most palates. As with most Asian stores in smalltown Norway, beware of the expiry date. Also sells international calling cards. Very friendly...more

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.
Equipment: All provided: Thermal suit, goggles and gloves, no need to bring anything. The suits are really thermal, don't wear too many layers underneath.
Favorite thing: Usually, the Molde River trickles through town. There is a tiny waterfall, but not very impressive, except after a heavy rainfall.
