Driving Across The Atlantic Ocean Road In Norway Is Both Terrifying And Awesome

Known simply as the Atlantic Ocean Road (Norwegian: Atlanterhavsveien), this five mile stretch of road is pure insanity. It’s honestly nothing like you have ever seen before. The road connects a series of islands with extreme amounts of twists, turns, ups, and downs.

Check out these amazing pictures below. The video at the end is quite amazing


While the road is dangerous, it offers some of the most beautiful views of waves crashing against the rocks, mountains and the Norwegian Seas. According to the website for the Atlantic Ocean Road, it was originally supposed to be a railway line in the early 20th century, but was ultimately abandoned.

It spans five miles along the Norwegian Sea




Driving on it frozen… well that’s another story
