National Tourist Routes

Eighteen carefully selected roads in Norway have been designated National Tourist Routes. National Tourist Routes are roads that take you through the most beautiful scenery Norway has to offer. Half of the routes are in Fjord Norway.

They will be further developed and improved until 2023 to become high-quality national tourist attractions. Picnic areas with exciting architecture have been built along the routes to enable road users to enjoy the views, experience the weather, take photos, have a bite to eat and explore the unique Norwegian scenery.

These routes are designated with this logo:
