National Tourist Routes as an attraction is a development project carried out by the Norwegian Public Roads Administration commissioned by the Storting and the Government. It includes 18 selected routes from Varanger in the north to Jæren in the south.
The uniqueness of these attractions lies in the spectacular architecture found at viewpoints, places of interest and visitors’ centres located amid magnificent scenery.
The aim of the National Tourist Routes is to strengthen Norway’s position in the marketing of international tourism and to help promote local business activities as well as nurturing the vitality of rural districts.
