“The road across the sea” is the iconic experience with bridges that arch between the islets and reefs along the rough Hustadvika Bay.
Eldhusøya on the Atlantic Road is the largest rest area along the Atlantic Road and is located on a scenic spot at the ocean’s edge, perfect for a rest stop to enjoy the scenery. Parts of the island are wet marshland and vulnerable to pedestrian traffic, so please stick to the well-marked trails.
Atlanterhavsvegen – the Atlantic Road – is a visual delight as it curves elegantly from islet to islet over its seven bridges. Nature and modern engineering meet and create this highly unique driving experience.
The trip takes you from the fertile cultural landscape of the coast across moorland to bare crags along the weather-beaten, open bay of Hustadvika. Take time to watch the sun disappearing below the horizon from here. Atlanterhavsvegen has been described as the world’s most beautiful drive.
