It branches from National Road 70 in Kristiansund, runs through the Atlantic Ocean Tunnel, across the island of Averøya, and across the Atlantic Ocean Road to Eide Municipality. It continues to Årø in Molde Municipality via the Tussen Tunnel, then heads under Fannefjorden in the Fannefjord Tunnel, across the island of Bolsøya then over the Bolsøy Bridge to the Skåla Peninsula. It then crosses Langfjorden on the ÅfarnesSølsnes Ferry, and enters Rauma Municipality. It intersects with the European route E136 highway in the town of Åndalsnes.

The Atlantic Ocean Road was in 2006 described as "the world's best road trip" by The Guardian.[1] There are plans for a subsea tunnel, the Langfjord Tunnel, to replace the ferry.[2]
