Molde, Åndalsnes og Eresfjord Cruise Ports

In the midst of the Norwegian fjords

Central ports for major cruise destinations Trollstigen, the Atlantic Road and Rauma Railway. The ports of Molde & Åndalsnes are situated in the midst of the Norwegian fjords, and have been visited by cruise ships since 1882. Cruise ships dock in the town centers, great for independent exploration. From 2016 we also welcome cruise ships to Eresfjord, where you can experience the quiet and charming village life. All excursions are possible from all ports. Perfect for visiting some of Norway`s most spectacular destinations and dramatic sights in one day. We offer a chance to visit two ports for the price of one, opening for a wide variety of overland tours.
