Tasty roads: Atlanterhavsvegen

Yet another thing to add to the “to do” list.

The photographer notes:

Atlanterhavsvegen (“The Atlantic Road”) is the part of Norwegian national road 64 that connects the island of Averøy to Vevang, Eide, on the mainland, and by extension, the cities of Kristiansund and Molde. The road is 8.2 km long and is built on a total of 8 bridges in picturesque surroundings.

Atlanterhavsvegen’s sharp turns and wild nature have ranked it first on The Guardian’s list of the world’s best road trips, in sharp competition with world renowned attractions such as Northern Ireland’s Antrim coast road and the Himalayas.
