Kristiansund is a port city located on Norway's western coast, in the Nordmore district. The city has population around 25,000 and is Nordmore's major town. Nearby settlements are the villages Nedre Frei, Kvalvag, Rensvik. Port Kristiansund is very often mistaken with Kristiansand (Norway's 5th largest city, located on the country's southern coast).

Port Kristiansund (Norway) cruise port

Since 1876 is operated the Sundbat ("Sound Boat") shuttle service for traveling between the islands. The small-capacity ferry ship crosses the harbour to Innlandet from Kirkelandet, then continues to Nordlandet, Gomalandet, and back to Kirkelandet. The roundtrip is repeated in half-hour intervals on weekdays. The Sundbat ferry bears the distinction of being the world's oldest motorized, regularly scheduled public transportation system in continuous service.

Grip is located northwest of Kristiansund. This is a deserted fishing village and a popular tourist attraction for its unique architecture. In Grip is also Norway's smallest stave church (medieval wooden church building) constructed in the end of 15th century.
