Adventurous Atlantic Road

Even though whales are a less common sight, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the view of the Atlantic Ocean, a rich bird life and even spot seals. The impressive road skips nimbly from island to island, across eight bridges. The tallest bridge, Storseisundet Bridge, has a dramatic and beautiful curve and almost brings an artistic perspective into the technique of building bridges. Many tourists choose to travel to the Atlantic Road during the autumn to experience the raging storms that pound the road. The construction workers experienced 12 hurricanes during the building process before the road opened in 1989. The Atlantic Road zigzags across low bridges that jut out over the sea, linking the islands between Molde 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, writes the British newspaper The Guardian.
