The Atlantic Ocean Road or the Atlanterhavsveien, in Norwegian, is one of the most iconic roads in Norway. Featuring a splendidly winding path overlooking the Atlantic ocean on both the sides, it is a part of one of the most photogenic landscapes in the country. Originally planned for a railway route which was never built, the Atlantic Road was established between 1983-89, after overcoming some twelve impeding hurricanes! A National Cultural Heritage sight and a thriving tourist attraction, the road curling over deep blue ocean with strong waves thrashing all around it looks right out of an intense painting.
