3.9/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web
Take a ride along the edge of the ocean on Atlantic Road, which runs across the open sea via eight bridges connecting the mainland with partially populated islands and islets. This much-admired 20th-century construction features several resting spots with viewing platforms from which you can spot sea birds and seals (and occasionally a whale). One of the bridges was specially designed for angling, but you can also fish from the other bridges. The "road in the sea" can be especially dramatic during a storm. The tourist route continues through the landscape shaped by fishermen and farmers, passing areas used for scuba diving as well as wind- and wave-surfing resorts. Using our custom trip planner, Averoy Municipality attractions like Atlantic Road can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • I visited the road with high expectations having read all the good things about it. But having travelled across it, I couldn't help but feel a little disappointed. Firstly, it was just 8 km and the dr...  read more »

  • The road is very beautiful. We had gone on a sunny day. We were able to enjoy the entire length of the road. The bridge looks amazing! The roads and the infrastructure is very good. There are many parking spots available that will help you to spend time around the area and get good views of the bridge and the road. I'd recommend visiting this place in summer as it's not cold and you can also enjoy the views of nature around.
  • Exciting road trip along the coastline! If you expect this to blow your mind away - it won't. But the ambience of the area is pretty nice and the road infrastructure (bridges and paths) are very well done and pretty cool. Make use of the many parking opportunities, go out of the car and have a look at the stunning scenery! It has several lookout points with the main one being near the largest bridge (see my attached photo). Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. Regards Svein-Magne Tunli from Bergen, Norway.
  • Excellent drive! Beautiful architecture, a ton of pull-offs for photos and fishing, and a beautiful café at the end. Absolutely enchanting!
  • A great road with many beautiful stop areas. The road itself is not very long, but worth a visit. We stopped about 3 times to take pictures and explore.
  • very great road! and why do people say this road is dangerous?
