dangerous roads
the world's most spectacular roads

Atlantic Ocean Road
Europe
Norway


Located in the midwest part of the Norwegian coastline, the Atlantic Road, with a length of 8274 meters (5,1 miles), is part of Norwegian national road 64 (Rv 64). It’s a very popular tourist attraction in the country. The road includes 8 bridges with a total length of 891 metres. The construction of the road started on August 1983 and it took six years to be finished. It's one of the most scenic drives in the world.
Driving along the Atlantic Road is like teetering on the edge of the sea. This road has been heralded as one of the most spectaculars roads in the world by the dangerousroads.org users. It links the towns of Kristiansund and Molde, the two main population centers in the county of Møre og Romsdal in Fjord Norway. It starts approximately 30 kilometers southwest of Kristiansund and ends 47 kilometers north of Molde. The road's roller coaster-feel, curvy bridges and phenomenal views have made it a favorite of road trippers and motorcyclists. It was also designated a Cultural Heritage Site, is considered a National Tourist Route, and has been recognized as the Norwegian Construction of the Century. It's one of the famous scenic drives in Norway.


The road includes 8 bridges with a total length of 891 metres. The construction of the road started on August 1983 and the construction took six years. It was opened on 7 July 1989. During construction the area was hit by 12 European windstorms.The road was opened on July, 7th 1989. Nowadays the road is toll-free. The surface of the road is asphalt. The road had a cost of 122 million Norwegian krone. The Atlanterhavsveien is built on several small islands and is spanned by eight bridges and several landfills.

The drive is definitely worth it. There are many excellent photo opportunities here. Don’t forget your camera! The Atlantic Road, known as Atlanterhavsveien in Norwegian, is just about the most scenic route one could imagine. The curvy road dips and arches over the brutal waves of the Norwegian Sea that often crash over the pavement during storms, and was subjected to 12 hurricanes during construction. A 5.2-mile segment of County Road 64 in Norway, it consists of several causeways, seven bridges, and four viewpoints to take in the scenic views.

The road's winding design, providing stunning panoramic views, is very curvy and fun for a leisurely ride, so it pays to take it slow. The Atlantic Road zigzags across low bridges that jut out over the sea, linking the islands between Molde (famous for its annual jazz festival in July) and Kristiansund in the western fjords. The Hustadvika is an infamous stretch of ocean and when in storm it is truly dramatic. In calmer weather you might spot whales and seals.

The weather on this zone is harsh and highly unpredictable and it does not take much time for the bright sun shine to change over to moderate to heavy snow fall. A sudden drop in the temperature, even in summer, can trigger winter-like conditions. The 8.3 km (5 mile) road is built on several small islands and skerries, and is spanned by eight bridges and several landfills. This road has an open sea view which is not so common for roads along the Norwegian coast. Here the distance between the islands was so small that a road could be built across the archipelago. In addition there are fjords and mountains inside the road.

The weather on this zone is harsh and highly unpredictable and it does not take much time for the bright sun shine to change over to moderate to heavy snow fall. The biggest fear is the wind, which often exceeds 30 miles per hour on the bridge. It has taxed the nerves of more than a few drivers. The bridge becomes a a truly treacherous drive during storms. Many people have a fear that when they drive over a bridge, they'll end up in the water.

Driving on the Atlanterhavsveien is one of the most amazing road trips in the world. Nowadays is a very popular tourist attraction: a serpentine highway twisting and turning over the treacherous Norwegian Sea. Beautiful nature, bendy roads and sometimes bad weather are a great combination that can describe this place! While it looks rather treacherous in bad weather conditions, Atlanterhavsveien is one of the most beautiful roads to travel in the world, with epic curves that can rival those of the top Scandinavian models.

This amazing destination that each driver should visit was originally envisioned as a railway, but the plans never managed to materialize. The Atlantic Road meanders at the ocean’s edge, from island to island, across bridges and rock-fills. Visitors frequently use the road to go fishing for cod and other fish directly from the bridges. One of the bridges is special designed for fishing.

Safe to say the Atlantic Road in Norway isn't your average commute to work. With eight bridges and plenty of curves that bring you dangerously close to the crashing waves, the highway feels more like a roller coaster.
