05-05-2023

(WorldKings.org) The Atlantic Road has been declared "The World's Best Road" and was honored as "Norway's Work of the Century" in 2005, becoming one of the most popular tourist attractions here to date.

The Atlantic Ocean Road is an 8.3 km long road in County Route 64, Averøy and Eide urban areas, Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. The uniqueness of this road is the 8 small winding bridges spanning 8 islands with very different curvatures. The architects designed strangely curved shapes connecting the islands to maximize their resistance to storms and winds from the Atlantic Ocean.

This impressive route in Norway is preserved as a Cultural Heritage, classified as one of the 18 National Tourist Routes of Norway. This is a destination not to be missed when traveling to Norway for many people. The location also appears in the advertisements of famous global car brands.

One of the beautiful sights that any visitor should not miss when coming to Atlantic Ocean Road is the outermost side of the breakwater at the stretch called Askevagen and the 260m-long Storseisundet bridge, which brings visitors Guests get an overview of the archipelago, coast, and ocean in a 360-degree perspective.

The Storseisundet Bridge is also known as the "drunk bridge" because of its challenging bends. This place soon became a tourist attraction to admire the amazing beauty of nature on both sides of the path. From a distance, the Storseisundet Bridge looks like it's leading into the sea. But actually, there is only a curve that protrudes into the sea and can deceive the driver's eyesight when looking at a far angle.

Along the dangerous road, there are many ideal attractions that should not be missed such as Bremsnes Cave, Kvernes Stave church. Fishing tours are held in the cool summer months, and visitors can fish at some stops on the bridge, or rent a fishing boat from a fisherman in the nearby town.
