Romsdalfjord, Norway Cruise Port

Romsdalfjord is the ninth longest fjord in Norway at 88 meters. Its water source is the Rauma River and its two major ports are in Molde and Åndalsnes. The fjord itself is a popular site for boating and fishing, and the ports have welcomed cruise ships since the 19th century. They offer relaxing small-town amenities alongside breathtaking views. Åndalsnes lies in the valley of Romsdal at the mouth of the great river and is surrounded on all sides by mountains. As the administrative center of the Rauma Municipality, they print a regional newspaper, have an Association Football club, and are a major stop on the Rauma Railway. Molde, offers stunning views of the fjord, its isles, and over 200 snowy peaks. As the major town in the municipality, they offer guided and unguided hiking, biking, and cave tours. It has also been home to the Romsdal Museum since 1912.
