The western coastal town of Molde stands on the Romsdal Peninsular on the shores of a fjord. It is sheltered by the islands of the Molde Archipelago and forested hills to the north. Visitors who hire a car in Molde can explore the renowned lakes, rivers and shorelines here. Highlights of the area include the Trollkirka, a marble cave leading to a beautiful waterfall, and Trollveggen, or the 'Troll Wall' - Europe's highest vertical rock face at a daunting 5,6ft. Drivers may also want to tackle the Trollstigen road or Trolls Path - part of Rv63 that zig-zags up a steep slope with 11 hairpin bends.
Molde is a cathedral city sited at a good natural harbour where the Moldeelva reaches the fjord. Hire a car in Molde to tour around the city easily, the attractions include the acclaimed Romsdal open-air folk museum and Fisheries Museum, both packed with historical buildings and objects. The local airport is situated three miles to the east in Åro and the Hurtigruten coastal service arrives in the harbour every day. Molde is famous for its panoramic view of up to 222 snow-capped mountains lining the horizon. The best place to see it is from the top of Varden, a 1,335ft hill next to the city.

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.
