The Atlantic Road is an 8km scenic masterpiece set amongst the hills, lakes and rivers of Norway’s fine natural landscape. The road zigzags across bridges and rock-fills from island to island on the lips of the ocean. There are many lay-bys at which to park and marvel at your surroundings, just several feet from the smooth coastal rocks, with excellent fishing opportunities. Also on view is a plethora of wildlife such as seals and whales, and the less preferable weather conditions can often provide water shows crashing against the rocks as you drive.
