I'm making my first trip to Norway in May, and I found this site, which has 18 different tourist routes.

I'm sure you can find some great drives among these suggestions. You should in particular check out the one called Gaularfjellet, which it appears has at least three different waterfalls.

The Geirangerfjord is lined with many waterfalls, not just the 7 sisters...tons of them all the way down the fjord.
If you drive up the road behind the town of Geiranger, headed east, there are some beautiful waterfalls at the top of the valley. Beautiful views from there over an abandoned mountain farm with the fjord far below.
As you drive up over Trollstigen there are hundreds of waterfalls and cataracts along the way. As you drive over the pass headed down to drive to Kristiansund you'll pass even more.
Another thing you might want to see near Krisiansund is the stave church at Kvernes...it's quite beautiful and well worth stopping off to visit.
Don't worry about not spending too much time in Kristiansund - there isn't really anything to see there.
