Can you imagine driving your car on the roaring Atlantic ocean? You can if you drive on the Atlantic Ocean Road in Norway. That will be the most amazing driving experience you ever have.

But guess what! You can use the road not only for driving but you can also use the road to go fishing for cod or other kind of fish directly from the bridges :)

It’s five miles of sheer insanity and wave-soaked driving between and runs through an archipelago in Eide and Averøy in Møre og Romsdal, Norway.

The Atlantic Ocean Road is a 8.274-kilometer (5.141 mi) long section of County Road 64 which connects the island and municipality of Averøy with the mainland at Eide. The road runs across an archipelago of partially inhabited islands and skerries. To the north lies Hustadvika, an unsheltered section of the Norwegian Sea, while to the south lies Lauvøyfjorden. The road has a width of 6.5 meters (21 ft) and a maximum gradient of eight percent.

The road is built on several small islands and skerries, which are connected by several causeways, viaducts and eight bridges—the most prominent being Storseisundet Bridge.

Driving along the Atlantic Road is like teetering on the edge on the sea. The road’s rollercoaster feel, curvy bridges and phenomenal views have made it a favorite of road trippers and motorcyclists.

Well yes, as you saw it, the brutal waves of the Norwegian Sea often crash over the pavement during storms. Can you imagine that during its construction the road was subjected to 12 hurricanes! The hell!
