Ranked as one of the world’s most spectacular roads this unique hybrid of natural beauty and modern engineering is truly a sight to behold.

The route goes from Karvag to Bud and halfway a unique driving experience is created by the seven iconic bridges jutting out of the sea. A number of tiny islands in the archipelago are connected though this road resulting in splendid interaction between land and sea.

Few places bring you closer to the ocean like the incredible Atlanterhavsveien does. The road was once created to enable fish transportation from the surrounding sea: it’s almost impossible to go fishing without a catch in these waters! Apart from the rollercoaster ride across the spectacular bridges, like the rest in Norway the road is sprawled with convenient rest areas to park the car and explore the phenomenal Nordic landscape by foot.
