The wide Moldefjord/Romsdalsfjord with its many islands and surrounded by alpine summits and little bays and smaller fjords is Norwegian landscape on a grand scale.

Molde is one of the three main towns and the administrative center of the county. It hosts one of the top football teams in the country, a fact that the local people are very proud of. The town also one of the major industrial towns in the area. Traditionally this was due to timber and textile related industry, but now it is dominated by maritime and petroleum-based activity. Norway's hub within logistics education is also situated here.

Molde has a maritime, temperate climate, with cool-to-warm summers, and relatively mild winters. The annual precipitation is medium-high, with an average of 1,640 millimeters (65 in) per year. The warmest season is late summer. Molde holds the national high for the month of October, with 25.6 °C or 78.1 °F (on 11 October 2005).

Due to the effects of Gulf Stream, the city rarely experiences lasting cold spells, and the average temperature is well above the average for its latitude.

More than 50 old buildings originating from all over the region have been moved here to form typical country courtyards of farm buildings, including open hearth houses, sheds, outhouses, smokehouses, and a small chapel. The Town Street with Mali’s Café shows typical Molde townhouses from the pre-war period. At Holmarka the museum has a stable which houses the museum’s horse, hens, sheep, and rabbits.

The Fisheries Museum is in the form of a small fishing village with old houses, fishermen’s shacks, cod-liver oil factory, engineering workshop, and schoolroom. It portrays the local coastal culture, working life and living conditions from around 1850. Large collection of boats and maritime equipment. The Hjertøya island is a great recreational area where you can hire rowing boats, fish or swim in the sea. Free Schwitters exhibition in the barn. Café and kiosk on the weekends. In the summer the Hjertøy Boat has regular departures from the quay by the market square in Molde. Separate prices.
  • The Jazz Boy (Jazzgutten). On the lower market square, with the fjord and the mountains as a backdrop, is the bronze statue “Jazzgutten,” a young jazz player with his saxophone. The sculpture by Nina Due was a gift from the people to commemorate the town’s 250th anniversary in 1992.
  • The green corridor. The green corridor runs from the sea at Reknes to the Chateau (baroque villa), continuing through the Reknes Park up to the ”Pavilion” at the Rekneshaugen viewpoint. The nature trail then passes through the Romsdal Museum and proceeds to Varden (407 m.a.s.), from where you can enjoy a marvelous view of the town, the fjord, and the Molde panorama.
  • Molde Cathedral. The cathedral, which was consecrated in 1957, is a double-nave long church in the Gothic style. A 50-meter high freestanding bell tower culminates in a copper-clad pyramid. The interior of the church contains some lovely stained glass and is richly decorated with Christian symbols and signs. It is the third church to be built on the site. The two first ones were destroyed in fires, but an old wooden cross and Axel Ender’s famous “Easter Morning” altarpiece were rescued from the flames.
  • The Rose Maiden (Rosepiken). At the Town Hall Square in the “Town of Roses,” you can find the bronze statue “Rosepiken,” surrounded by a dancing fountain. The sculpture was a gift to Molde in 1971 from Gotlib Moe. It was sculpted by Ragnhild Butenschøn.

  • Aker Stadium. One of Norway’s most modern football stadiums, seating 11 200. The stadium is situated on the waterfront to the west of the town center and is designed by the Molde architect Kjell Kosberg. It has a granite and glass frontage. The stadium was paid for by Kjell Inge Røkke and Bjørn Rune Gjelsten and cost 212 million Norwegian kroner in 1998.
  • Molde Cruise Ship Harbour. Molde has long been a port of call for cruise ships, and the town was one of the main attractions when the first cruise ship with paying passengers visited Norway in 1882. Every summer, 40-50 cruise ships call at Molde Harbour.
  • The Royal Birch and the Peace Grove. The place where King Haakon and Crown Prince Olav sought shelter from German bombers in April 1940 when they were being hunted by the German occupying forces. The Peace Grove next to the Royal Birch was founded by Knut Ødegård, president of the Bjørnson Festival in 1997. It symbolizes the continuing struggle for freedom, peace and human dignity both today and in the future.
  • Moldemarka hiking area. The area to the north of Molde, Moldemarka, is a great walking/skiing area all year round with its network of paths, walking trails and skiing tracks. Several of the forest roads take you into wilderness areas where there are information boards with maps at many of the starting points, as well as signposts along the trails. In winter there are approx. 10 km of prepared skiing tracks and a good 7 km of these are floodlit. Outside the skiing season, the “classic” walk is the Gamle Vardeveg road from the Romsdal Museum via the Storlihytta cabin to Varden (407 m.a.s.). It takes about one hour to reach the top, where in summer you can buy refreshments at the Vardestua restaurant. The eastern part of Moldemarka is easily accessible from the car park at Jensgurulia in Nordbyen. To the west, we recommend the Meekdalen valley and the Kringstadsetra summer pasture farm, while further inland you can walk up to Frænavarden (588 m.a.s.) and Valltua (586 m.a.s.). There are many breathtaking views. Walking maps for Molde and Fræna can be bought in bookshops and at the tourist office.

What to do in Molde, Norway


Excursions

The fairytale world of Skaret. Skaret is located only ten minutes by car from Molde on RV64. The area is an excellent starting point for those who want to experience nature, culture and handwork traditions. At Skaret, you will find old buildings, Norwegian food traditions, handwork, candle factory, and activities. In short, the whole place is an adventure. Here, everything is served, from simple home fare to local specialties and abounding feast tables in romantic, rustic surroundings. You will find authentic, handcrafted items including rose-painted artifacts, ceramics, woven articles, clothing, knitwear, silverware and plenty of local farm food in the sales exhibits. Skaret also offers an incredible selection of decorative candles from Løiten Lys, the largest producer of handmade candles in Norway. The candlemaking workshop ranges over 3 floors and is one of the most unusual shops in the district. Here you can see how candles are made, tinted and creatively decorated. At Skaret, you can visit horses, goats, wild sheep and rabbits throughout the summer. Pony-riding and horse-drawn carriage/sleigh ride can be booked all year. There is also a children’s playground and an open-air pool which is open during the Norwegian school holiday. The area is an excellent starting point for experiencing the countryside, including nature trails, walking trails, running trails and many fishing lakes.

Bud and the Atlantic Road. Within an hour driving from Molde, you can visit the idyllic fishing village of Bud and the famous Atlantic Road, voted the worlds nicest road by ”The Guardian”. The road zigzags across bridges and rock-fills from island to island right out at the ocean’s edge. It is easy to park your car in one of the many lay-bys and walk a few meters to the smooth coastal rocks and some excellent fishing spots. A stone’s throw or two to the west, the shipping lane crosses the notorious waters of the Hustadvika bay, concealing innumerable wrecks. Many people take a trip out here when the autumn storms start to rage. It is quite a sight when the big waves break beside (and sometimes across) the road! The road workers experienced 12 hurricanes during the construction of the Atlantic Road before it was opened in 1989. Around 1900 as many as 120 people lived on these windswept islands. In 2006, the Atlantic Road was voted Norwegian Structure of the Century.

The Trollstigen Road. Trollstigen, “The Troll Ladder”, is the most visited tourist road in Norway, and is located approximately 65 km outside of Molde. The road twists through 11 hairpin bends as it climbs the steep mountainsides up to Stigrøra (858 m.a.s.). In some places it is cut into the mountain, in others, it is built on top of stone walls. An impressive bridge in natural stone carries it across the Stigfossen waterfall. There are several ways to experience this splendor on foot. Try the old Kløvstien path over Trollstigen, which has existed for several hundred years, or the route from Trollstigen over to the Trolltindene peaks. The road is closed during winter and is usually opened at the end of May.

Island hopping on two wheels. This cycling tour starts in Molde and proceeds westwards to the island municipalities of Midsund, Sandøy, and Aukra. Between the many islands, you can relax on ferries or express boats. The tour continues on the mainland to the fishing village of Bud, across small islands and skerries along the Atlantic Road, and ends with the ferry trip from Averøy to Kristiansund. Take the “Hurtigruten” (express coastal service) back to Molde or northwards to Trondheim. Some parts of the cycling tour take you across flat islands right at the ocean’s edge, with views of the high mountains on the mainland. There is very little traffic on many stretches, but a complete range of services. En route, there are also lots of lovely detours you can take if you want to see more of the area. The route, which totals 200 km, is cycled in stages with overnight stops along the way. Along the route, you will pass a multitude of campsites, cabins, seahouses and attractive places to eat. Cycle guide with detailed maps, tour descriptions, and interesting detours is available at the tourist office in Molde.

Activities and sports

Diving equipment hire, organized guided boat trips, diving courses and air fills, are offered at the Atlantic Road.

On the landward side of the islands and in the fjords it is possible to fish from ordinary pleasure craft. Along the whole coast, there are many good spots for angling from shore with rods, line, and lures.
  • Hunting and fishing. Fishing in fresh water is reserved for an owner, permission from owner necessary. It is permitted to use most types of fishing equipment in the mountains. Many people use otter boards for fishing in mountain lakes, but most prefer to use a rod. The tackle should be light, with a line that is preferably not much thicker than 0.25 mm and small hooks. Small spinners and spoons also work well. Some mountain lakes are ideal for fly-fishing. The best salmon rivers are Aura in Eikesdalen, Batnfjordselva in Batnfjorden, Eira in Eresfjorden, Hustadelva at Hustad, Malmeelva in Malmefjorden, Moaelva in Sylteosen, Måna in Måndalen, Oselva in Kleiveosen, Rauma in Romsdalen, Tressa in Tresfjorden and Visa in Vistdalen. Sea trout migrate up the Oselva river, and freshwater trout can be fished in the Visa, Moaelva and Hustadelva rivers. Lesja is a unique area for those interested in hunting or fishing. There are over 300 mountain lakes, many of them teeming with fish. A state fishing license is required and can be purchased at any post office. Fishing permits can be bought locally near the rivers. Annual hunting season for wild reindeer, moose and small game, especially grouse.

  • Ski and snowboard. Bjorli is renowned for its long winters with guaranteed snow. Bjorli has expanded its lift capacity with a 6-seat express chairlift.

  • Extreme sport.

We do not recommend anyone to take part in such activities if they don’t have the necessary experience and skills. As publishers of this brochure, we accept no liability for any injury that might arise.
    • Base jumping. The mountains of the Romsdalen and Eikesdalen valleys are some of the best places in the world for base jumping. Kalskråtinden, Gridsetskolten, and Unionsveggen are popular exit points in Romsdalen. In Eikesdalen, we recommend Strandkolvet (Katthammaren), Aurstupet and Vikesaksa. In Julsundet, 10 km west of Molde, you can jump from Ravnfloget. Base jumping from the Trollveggen wall is prohibited. All base jumping in the region is at own risk.

Safety in Molde, Norway


Norway has, in general, a low crime rate. Møre og Romsdal does not have any big cities where crime is relatively more frequent. Violent crimes are very rare. Petty thefts and vandalism are the most common form of crime. Most of Møre og Romsdal are small, peaceful villages where everybody knows each other, and tourists do not need to worry about their safety in public places. Tourists should, however, watch their belongings in crowded tourist spots.

In general, people drive carefully on mountain roads and few car accidents happen, even if many tourists feel unsafe. However, drivers tend to overuse their brakes which causes the brake fluid to boil - use a low gear and let the engine control the speed downhill.

Møre og Romsdal has large numbers of red deer (hart, "hjort") that can suddenly jump into the road at dusk and dawn (particularly where the road is passing through dense forest). Red deer is much smaller than the moose (elk) found in Eastern Norway, but it can still create a situation of danger and cause serious damage to your car. Note the special warning sign along many roads. Call the police at 02800 (or emergency number 112) if you wound an animal.

Do not walk near or on glaciers without proper equipment and instructions. Do not underestimate the risk on slippery slopes (particularly near waterfalls).

Do not underestimate the power of waves along the Atlantic. Wear a life vest when in a small open boat.
