Gamle Strynefjellsvegen, Norway

Without a doubt, the highlight of my Norway trip was driving some of the tourist routes.  Norway has a set of routes that are pretty much the cream-of-the-crop in the country as far as beauty or historical significance.  Thankfully I realized the potential of them early on in the researching  process, as every one had unbelievable scenery.

The Tourist Routes website says:

There are still roads that are not merely designed to get you to your destination as quickly as possible. National Tourist Routes are beautiful drives with that little bit extra. The routes are carefully selected by the Norwegian Public Roads Administration, and each of the 18 routes has its own history and character. Our job is to make sure the routes are adapted to travellers' needs. We do so by building spectacular viewpoints with service buildings, car parks, furniture, paths and art.

Gamle Strynefjellsvegan was one of these roads and was an absolute joy to weave in and around through the mountain pass.  There's nothing like seeing a crystal teal water lake next to the road with glaciers on all sides of you.
