Atlantic Road, Averoy Municipality

(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.

  • הכביש מתפתל בין האיים, הרבה גשרים ולפעמים הגלים מתנפצים ומתיזים עלינו מיים. הנוף נפלא. אפשר לרדת מהרכב בהרבה מקומות ולצפות בנוף מסביב. 
  • What are you doing? you are in Kristiansund direction famous Atlantic road and there you go??? If I had known how would end, we might have avoided. To pass a tollbooth charging us the toll (Oh well by ... is the Atlantic road!), but then follow it we realized that ponte storto aside, the rest to see there is very little, in fact very little, at least things you see in all of Norway. Baldwin you see, fame in this case for us before the place. Crooked Bridge (for photos) nice, overall a bit overrated.

  • No matter what weather it is always an experience now was still a new trail opened and one has yet again, I'm a different perspective on the building for all seasons here gwesen and it fascinates me again and again - the play of nature and the efforts of the people they serve to make

  • We passed through on a sunny, windy and freezing April day! The highway is engineered superbly, island hopping its way along the coast. Would recommend including this part of the Atlantic highway to your itinerary and taking advantage of all the car park opportunities to take a photo or go for a walk to appreciate the road for what it is. Would love to see it on a stormy day with waves crashing from the pillars over the road.
  • It wasn't the sunniest days of all but it was nice. The skies were a bit cloudy and you have a tiny little road that seemingly heads to nowhere. It was so beautiful.
  • 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.
  • Beautiful scenic drive with lots of great viewpoints. It's extra exciting if the weather is kicking up the waves over the road. Pro tip: go there around sunset time when it's partly cloudy. The mountains will have fog creeping up over, or around them.
  • 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.
