The 8.3 km long Atlantic Ocean Road is connecting the cities Molde and Kristiansund, urban centers of the region located in the fjords of western Norway. The road starts approximately 30 miles southwest of Kristiansund and ends 47 miles north of Molde, Mediafax.
The road winds across low bridges that seem to come from the sea uniting a chain of islands between Molde (famous for its jazz festival which is hosted annually in July) and Kristiansund in the western fjords.
The Atlantic road passes a very dangerous west coast of Norway, named Hustadvika. Breathtaking storms which deviate the area have brought the end of many ships over time. But when the ocean is quieter there are spectacular views of the open water surface, being driven by a variety of birds, seals and even whales.
