Experience Bud and the Atlantic Road

There are many who visit the Atlantic Road and they are filming while they are driving it. The road is also a very popular location for commercials and a top destination for many car enthusiasts. Here are a handful of films we've found on You Tube. If you have a film from our area, so feel free to send this over to us, - and we can publish it here.

The Atlantic Road - The National Tourist Route

The Atlantic Road meanders at the ocean’s edge, from island to island, across bridges and rock-fills. There are numerous attractive picnic areas where you can park to get even closer to the waves – a few steps and you can also cast a fishing line, if you wish. There are some excellent fishing spots. A stone’s throw to the west the shipping lane crosses Hustadvika, a notorious stretch of open sea. Many shipwrecks rest on the seafloor here. The Atlantic Road is especially fascinating when the autumn storms rage – large waves break right next to the road (and occasionally even wash across the asphalt). Road construction workers had to endure twelve hurricanes before the Atlantic Road could open in 1989! At the end of the 19th century, 120 people lived on these windswept islands. Their livelihood was fishing and production of dried fish.
