Askevågen - Atlanterhavsvegen - www.nasjonaleturistveger.no
 
Atlanterhavsvegen is a good example of how people and nature can interact successfully. The seven bridges that arch between the islets and skerries on the edge of the ocean not only present a magnificent view, they are also an outstanding feat of engineering. In 2005, Atlanterhavsvegen was awarded the distinction of being Norway's Architectural Monument of the Century, and is also known as the world's most beautiful car journey.

The ocean dominates the impression of this stretch, which runs through a landscape rich in coastal culture along the rough Hustadvika bay, a treacherous strait for seafarers through the centuries.

National Tourist Route Atlanterhavsvegen runs from Kårvåg to Bud, over a distance of 36 kilometres.

Askevågen

Askevågen.

 Along Atlanterhavsvegen, several smaller roads branch out to ports with breakwaters offering protection from the elements. Out on the breakwaters, the sense of closeness to the ocean and the forces of nature is at its most intense, in stormy as well as sunny weather. The viewing platform on the outer end of the breakwater at Askevågen offers a 360-degree panoramic view of the archipelago, the ocean and the shore.Architect: 3 RW - Jacob Røssvik.
