The Atlantic Road
The Atlantic road connects the charming coastal towns of Molde and Kristiansund, ideally located between the coast, fjords and mountains.
Viewed by many as the most beautiful drive in the world, the Atlantic Road winds its way across the exposed, rocky islands and islets right at the ocean’s edge. You will also find many small fishing villages along the road, which is just as dramatic in sunshine as it is in stormy weather.
