The Atlantic Road

There are many fascinating roads in Norway. A much used road for car commercials is Atlanterhavsveien or The Atlantic Road in English. It was commissioned in the early 80s and finnished in 1989. The road has an open sea view which is not so common for roads along the Norwegian coast, since there are often 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.
