Norwegian Scenic Route Atlanterhavsvegen runs from Kårvåg to Bud, a total distance of 36 km  (Roads 64/242/663/238/235).
The most interesting part of the road is the last 10 km to the north. That’s where all the pictures are taken.

In 2005, the Atlantic Road was named the Norwegian Construction of the Century. The award was sponsored by the construction industry and the national broadcaster NRK.

The world’s best road trip 
The road that crosses this “infamous stretch of ocean” was hailed as the world’s best road trip by the British newspaper The Guardian. In 2006, the newspaper ranked the Atlantic Road ahead of more famous roads in for instance Australia and the Himalayas.

If you plan to continue north after driving Atlanterhavsvegen, a boat trip to the weather-beaten and idyllic islands of Grip, 14 km northwest of Kristiansund is recommended. The boat departs from Kristiansund and takes about an hour each way.

    Agree with Jan-Olof, but if you come on a grey day, it’s easy to ask; “What’s the fuzz all about? Some bridges?” If you can, bring a drone, so you can film your memories from above – that’s when this road becomes spectacular! 😀 👍

    A true bucket list road. Spectacular but short, despite that definitely worth the visit
