Svevestien is an elevated path that loops around the western end of Eldhusøya Island. The island is located midway along the chain of bridges on the Atlantic Ocean Road.
The winding steel trail is accessible to all, regardless of the weather conditions. There are views of the wild coastline and the Storseisund Bridge, the most iconic of the seven bridges.
There is a café by the parking lot, built into the landscape.
Svevestien is located on Eldhusøya Island, along Norwegian Scenic Route Atlanterhavsvegen.
From Molde, travel north on road 64. Join the chain of bridges just after Vevang. Storseisund Bridge connects to Eldhusøya and the parking lot is on the left-hand side.
From Kristiansund, follow road 64 west. Join the scenic route in Kårvåg and after the third bridge, look for the parking lot on the right-hand side.
Join the path at either end of the parking lot and follow it as it loops around. On a sunny day it’s nice to walk the path twice, once in each direction.
