Klippfish Museum, Kristiansund

This authentic tour takes you, by replica veteran sundboat, to the Klippfish Museum to find out about this Norwegian speciality.

Setting off from the quayside, your tour transportation will be a replica veteran Sundboat - a trademark of the town and the Kristiansunders are very proud of its long tradition on their harbour. After the short journey you will spend approximately an hour and a half at the Klippfish Museum. The museum tells the story of the salt cod trade in Norway from the 1740s to the post World War II period. The museum continues to dry salt cod in the traditional manner, and the production is unbroken from 1749 to the present day. Modern standards of hygiene have brought about radical changes in the industry and the museum will soon be the only place where salt cod production can be experienced in its traditional surroundings. A guided tour will be followed by a tasting of the traditional fish. You then return across the harbour to your awaiting ship.

Is this tour right for you?

IS THIS TOUR RIGHT FOR YOU? This tour involves a moderate amount of walking, over some uneven surfaces and there will be some steps to get into the boat. There are limited seats inside, but plenty of space on the open upper deck. Unfortunately the tour is not suitable for wheelchair users as there are relatively steep steps at the Klippfish Museum. You will taste a typical bacalao fish dish with flatbread.
