We stayed in Norway an extra day to see Atlantic road. But we were very disappointed. There are many more attractive things to see in Norway. The pictures and videos they show are during bad season. I personally felt that it is a day wasted.
The Atlantic Road is quite an impressive engineering achievement. It is so beautiful and otherworldly that it is likely that one has seen it in car commercials and movie clips the world round. It is a string of jagged rocks that emerge from the sea...More
It is amazing how those islands are all connected and especially this Bridget over the Atlantic Ocean. There is a nice path that offers different views of this fabulous bridge. It is really worth a stop and it is free.
This small stretch of road is amazing. With bridges that structurally make you wonder surrounded by stunning landscapes it really is a great combination. we drove the road twice at different times of the day and it was beautiful.
We planned our roadtrip around Norway merticulously and was so hyped to include the Atlantic Ocean Road. Having seen pictures of the waves crashing into the rocks and splashing on the highway online, I suppose we envisioned the same and never stopped to think that...More
The Atlantic Road has National Tourist Route status and the entire stretch between Bud and Kristiansund, we drove all the way to Bud but I think the first part from Kristiansund is the nicest. It is an unique road whit nature that is different from...More
Make sure not to miss this part of Norway. I started from Kristiansund taking the tunnel over to Averøy and then began the Atlantic Road. My suggestion is to follow it all the way to Bud. If it is stormy and windy, all the better....More
Short (literally) and not so sweet. I agree with other reviewers who say that the Atlantic Ocean Road is over-hyped. It is definitely underwhelming and a disappointment. You might become the victim of its' own tourist industry advertising. Why? For one thing, the advertising photos...More
Do not waste your time going for the drive all the way to Atlantic road. Its nothing extra ordinary. Norway has very many engineering marvels in the form of its tunnels and bridges. We wasted a day doing this and could have easily enjoyed the...More

April can be a little early for touring around the Westcoast of Norway in my opinion. You can still get snow and ice. If possible, I would try a little later, like in middle May. If you do that, make sure you have reservations for the nights of May 16 and 17, but you could see how Norway celebrates their Constitution Day which is colorful and fun. Until the exact month of travel is known, it is very difficult to set and itinerary. Kristiansund is kind of a interesting place to spend the night before traveling the Atlantic Road. You could proceed to Alesund after that as well. If you travel late enough, you can plan a trip to the famous Geiranger Fjord and that's also a great place to overnight, but you have to check road conditions on getting there. Have fun.

Don't worry, wherever there is a good place to admire ocean panorama or road view there is a parking. In the most beautiful place (near the odd bridge end) there is a big parking, toilets, coffee shop and a gorgeous passage... More
Don't worry, wherever there is a good place to admire ocean panorama or road view there is a parking. In the most beautiful place (near the odd bridge end) there is a big parking, toilets, coffee shop and a gorgeous passage by the seashore, to walk on and take pictures (and rest a little watching the beauty of nature and Man's work)
