The Atlantic Road

This stretch of road is called the world's most beautiful road trip. The road meanders like a sea serpent over islets and reefs, with the vast ocean as your nearest companion. This road is featured in several international film and TV productions, including James Bond and Succession.

The walking path Svevestien on Eldhusøya

Stop on Eldhusøya island and walk the 700-metre-long walkway Svevestien, following the seashore. The walkway is made of latticework floating above the terrain, secured on poles. Here, you will be awarded fantastic views on a trip suitable for everyone. Eldhusøya is also a popular stop for photographing the iconic Storseisund Bridge.
