Atlantic Road - A Beautiful Bridge in Norway :
Atlantic Road is 8.3 km (5.2 miles) long section of County Road 64, which covers an archipelago of Eide and Averøy in Møre og Romsdal, Norway. Located on the northern part of the coastal zone Hustadvika, it connects the village with Kårvåg Averøy Vevang in Eide on the Romsdal Peninsula on the mainland. The road is an alternative between the towns of Molde and Kristiansund, via the tunnel under the Atlantic. The internal connection between these two cities are Krifast system bridge / tunnel.

Construction work on the Atlantic Ocean Road started on 1 August 1983, with the opening taking place on 7 July 1989. During this period there were no less than 12 hurricane-like storms in the area. The road is built on several small islands and skerries, and is spanned by eight bridges and several causeways/viaducts.

This road has an open sea view which is not so common for roads along the Norwegian coast, since there are archipelagos that obscures this view. Here the distance between the islands is so small that a road could be built across the archipelago. In addition there are fjords and mountains inside the road. The spectacular road quickly became a popular tourist attraction to the extent that caution must be shown when driving it, as both the local population and visitors frequently use the road to go fishing for cod and other saltwater fish directly from the roadside.

The Atlantic Ocean Road was voted the "Norwegian Construction of the Century" on 27 September 2005, and is currently Norway's second most visited scenic road afterTrollstigen, also in Møre og Romsdal. The Atlantic Ocean Road's sharp turns and wild nature have ranked it first on The Guardian's list of the world's best road trips, in sharp competition with world renowned attractions such as Northern Ireland's Antrim coast road and the Himalayas.
