The Atlantic Road or the Atlantic Ocean Road, Norway. A 8.3-kilometer (5.2 mi) long road stretches through the archipelago in the Norwegian Sea. Besides some rocky islands and skerries, the road is build above water and often looks like an enormous bridge.
The construction took place between 1983 and 1989. The road paid off fairly quickly and today there is no toll for driving it. It is classified as the National Tourist Route and is included in a cultural heritage list.
The way connects Averøy island with the mainland at Eide municipality. Because of the rough Norwegian landscape and wild nature, the route has been listed as one of the greatest road trips in the world. Adventurers come to the Atlantic Road in autumn to experience the storms, that hit the drive.
