Nordlandet is an island in Kristiansund Municipality in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. The 14.3-square-kilometre (5.5 sq mi) island is located just east of the city center of Kristiansund, and is one of the boroughs of the city. The island is home to Kristiansund Airport, Kvernberget, which is named after the nearby 205-metre (673 ft) tall mountain Kvernberget. This is the largest of the islands that make up the city of Kristiansund (the others being Kirkelandet, Innlandet, and Skorpa).[1]
