More info: The Måløy bridge is located on the east side of the island of Vågsøy. It is a cantilever bridge connecting Måløy to the village area of Degnepoll on the mainland. When the bridge was opened in 1974, it was the longest bridge in Norway. The bridge is 1,224 mtrs long with 34 spans and was built to withstand winds of up to 170mph. There are signs at each end of the bridge to show the wind speed and the bridge has been closed several times due to high winds.
The island of Vågsøy has many lighthouses and is well known for the Kannestenen rock which was molded by the sea over thousands of years into a spectacular mushroom-like shape. The Jostedalsbreen National Park on the island, has the largest glacier in continental Europe.
