It connects Averøy with the mainland via a series of small islands and islets spanned by a total of eight bridges over 8274 meters. The road was opened in 1989 and is toll free. The Atlantic Road has National Tourist Route status and the entire stretch between Bud and Kristiansund is one continuous experience packed with coastal scenery, culture and history.
The contrasts between a trip on a sun-soaked and tranquil summer day and a foam-sprayed journey in a storm from the northwest are amazing. Take your time and open all of your senses. The Atlantic Road experience will give you memories for life. Park your car at designated stopping places, climb a hillock and enjoy the salty air and the magnificent view. Take a stroll around the elevated walking path at Eldhusøya. Whether the ocean is flat calm or a storm is brewing; there are great nature experiences in store. Make your way to Håholmen (daily boat trips during the summer). Along the Atlantic road, Strømsholmen sea sports center also organizes fishing trips, snorkelling with seals or rib safaris. There are several of the accommodation options on Averøy or Hustadvika that also offer fishing trips with a skipper.
