It is not often that a road becomes a destination, but the Atlantic Ocean Road is up there with Australia’s Great Ocean Road and the United States’ Route 66. In fact, Norway seems to have made it a challenge to design and build spectacular roads in the most unlikely of places, be it across mountain passes or, in this case, to connect various remote islands. At just over 8km it isn’t very long, but there are plenty of places to stop, go for walks and admire the crazy bridges with their fjord and mountain backdrops to ensure that it will take you a good few hours to get past. Very exposed to ocean storms, driving here on a sunny summer’s day and a gloomy, windy winter’s evening are two very different experiences. No road trip to Norway is complete without a visit here!
