Amazing Photos of Places You Need To Visit
— Cheryl Strayed
The Place: Atlantic Road (Atlanterhavsveien); Møre og Romsdal, Norway
The Reason to Go: A drive on this scenic 5.1-mile road along the Norwegian coastline may not be as courageous as Strayed's 1,100-mile solo hike on the Pacific Crest Trail, but this part-road/part–roller coaster is still an adventure. It bends, arches and dips over the sea to connect several small islands between Molde and Kristiansund. Waves crash along the pavement to dramatic effect (though you'll be wise to note that harsh winter storm conditions can occur with just a slight drop in temperature).
