Anyone familiar with Norway's western frontier will know that the coastal geography is defined by hundreds of tiny islands. Kristiansund is characterised by its existence on four main islands: Nordlandet, Kirkelandet, Frei and Innlandet. It's on Nordlandet that you'll find the airport, and those who hire a car from Kristiansund Airport can be in town in less than 20 minutes. You'll be struck by the impressive modern architecture of Kirkelandet Church, which contrasts nicely with the traditional cityscape.
Travelling between the islands is fairly simple; the ferry system known as Sundbåt is the oldest public transport system in the world, but if you want to discover terrain such as the profoundly beautiful Atlantic Road, hiring a car from Kristiansund Airport is essential.
Get to grips with the island hopping mentality of Kristiansund's locals by taking a ride on the Sundbåtene ferries, and taking in sights such as Nordlandet Church and Kristiansund Opera House, before relaxing in the city centre park known as Vanndamman. Take a stroll or a short drive to the Varden Viewpoint, which gives you wonderful panoramas over the city.
Hiring a car from Kristiansund Airport makes for a real treat, with the nearby Atlantic Road often cited as the best scenic drive in Europe. Check out the famous Storseisundet Bridge where the blind summit appears to be heading into a beautiful mountain abyss. Rent a car from Kristiansund Airport and you'll also love the Aursjøvegen Mountain Road with its awesome mountain passes.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
