The Atlantic Road

Fv64 10, 6530 Averøy, Norway

Declared “the world’s best road trip” by the Guardian, a drive along western Norway‘s 5.2 mile Atlantic Ocean Road is certainly bound to be inspiring. The road connects the mainland with several small islands of an archipelago, winding across the ocean, passing by lighthouses, rugged landscape and some of the most beautiful ocean terrain in the country. In some places the road actually resembles a roller coaster track, and is particularly dramatic when wind and tide send waves crashing up and over the road itself.
