Molde lies at the foot of a fjord which opens on to a panorama of 87 snow-capped peaks. It’s known as the Town of Roses, because a host of plants belonging to far warmer climates grow on the sunny slopes. On this tour you’ll visit Molde’s two main highlights. First up is the Romsdal Museum, one of the largest regional museums in Norway. There are well over 40 buildings here, detailing life in the Viking era right up to the end of the 19th century. Once you’ve had a look around, a local folk group will don national costume and perform a dance for you. Then it’s time to be whisked skywards, 1200 feet above Molde, to Varden Viewpoint. Feast your eyes on superb views over the fjord, the Romsdal Mountains and the town below, with its white-painted wooden houses and emerald green gardens.
