The places around the bridge offer great fishing, the bridge itself is a wonder of construction.
The Skarnsundet Bridge is a cable stayed bridge located close to the Arctic Circle on the coast of Norway in an area characterised by severe marine environment, strong winds, salt spray and large temperature variations. The 1010 m long bridge was opened to traffic in December 1991. The three cable-stayed spans are supported by a total of 208 cables. The bridge cross-section is a concrete box girder of triangular shape, 13 m wide and 2.15 m high. The two towers are A-shaped concrete frames of height 152 m above sea level. The central span of 530 m combined with the fact that the bridge has only two traffic lanes makes it unique for its record breaking span and great slenderness.
