Crazy Highway in Norway-- My way or the Norway Highway

Check out this crazy expensive highway in Norway. The Atlantic Highway (Atlanterhavsveien in Norwegian..as tongue twisting as the road itself.)

And for another wild highway see Bolivian Highway of Death


It jumps from island to island. 5 miles long.


The road is fantastic enough that it is ranked as the second most visited tourist destination in Norway.


During the 6 year construction, they had to work through 12 hurricane class storms.

 


Driving this gets added to my bucket list!

Steve - Have you ever been to Norway? It is an AMAZING country.

Cool post. I was there just recently and drove it the thing! Talk about site seeing. It was insane. The drive was gorgeous.

The road was abnormally smooth too. Well constructed.

Nope..have not been yet. And I never thought of Norway as a driving spot...more floating!

This highway has become a "best drive ever" winner according to the London Guardian.

"Atlanterhavsveien's sharp turns and wild nature have ranked it first on The Guardian's list of the world's best road trips, in sharp competition with world renowned attractions such as Northern Ireland's Antrim coast road and the Himalayas."

Not quite as many curves as my profile pic..but would this be fun to "run". Once for speed, and back again for the view.
