This little gem of a ferry connects the islands, but it is also culture. This is the heart of the city. Slow down, understand, and enjoy.

A 20 minute cruise for 33 NOK - who could ask for more? The best possible view of the archipelago that surrounds Kristiansund harbour. An even better alternative: Go for the day pass and explore every island separately

Check this one out . Cruise around the bay and see the port from all angles. This weekend there is an annual festival of timber framed boats all of them beautifully men tainted.

We decided to leave the car behind and take sundbåten. Sundbåten offers a fantastic view of the harbour. Today the fare was free and the conductor was polite and informed me of this when I tried to pay with my cellphone.

A very affordable and nice roundtrip for only 75 kr. We were allowed to go up with the skipper, a friendly man that loves his job. Nice views from the boat.

The captain was on of the old school...he made us feel special. It's a must. Pay extra and get off in each island for a 20 min walk.

Yes you can certainly hop on hop off as this is essentially a commuter service for the locals. There is another sightseeing cruise which lasts a couple of hours and costs about 20usd
