The Atlantic Ocean Road, Norway

The weather on this zone is harsh and highly unpredictable and it does not take much time for the bright sun shine to change over to moderate to heavy snow fall. The biggest fear is the wind, which often exceeds 30 miles per hour on the bridge. It has taxed the nerves of more than a few drivers. The bridge becomes a truly treacherous drive during storms. Many people have a fear that when they drive over a bridge, they'll end up in the water

The Atlantic Road meanders at the ocean’s edge, from island to island, across bridges and rock-fills. This breathtaking, scenic route is frequently listed among the world’s best road trips.

Not a drive for the fainthearted, the Atlantic Road twists and turns through one of Norway’s most dramatic, storm-prone seas and across the awe-inspiring Storseisundet Bridge – the tallest of the road’s eight bridges and a curved architectural feat that, when viewed from certain angles, appears to drop off straight into the sea.

There is little room for error on this road. It's normal for your palms to sweat looking at those photos, imagine what it must have been like before the barriers.
