This small stretch of road is amazing. With bridges that structurally make you wonder surrounded by stunning landscapes it really is a great combination. we drove the road twice at different times of the day and it was beautiful.

We planned our roadtrip around Norway merticulously and was so hyped to include the Atlantic Ocean Road. Having seen pictures of the waves crashing into the rocks and splashing on the highway online, I suppose we envisioned the same and never stopped to think that...More

Make sure not to miss this part of Norway. I started from Kristiansund taking the tunnel over to Averøy and then began the Atlantic Road. My suggestion is to follow it all the way to Bud. If it is stormy and windy, all the better....More

Short (literally) and not so sweet. I agree with other reviewers who say that the Atlantic Ocean Road is over-hyped. It is definitely underwhelming and a disappointment. You might become the victim of its' own tourist industry advertising. Why? For one thing, the advertising photos...More

It is a pretty drive across the islands and bridges that make up the atlantic road but if need to make a choice spend more time in the fjords.

April can be a little early for touring around the Westcoast of Norway in my opinion. You can still get snow and ice. If possible, I would try a little later, like in middle May. If you do that, make sure you have... More
