  • Extremely long and curved bridge in a very beautiful landscape. High above the sea but no possibilities to look if driving safely. Nice parking areas in both ends.  more »
  • States in Sandnessjøen over the night, drive over the bridge next day. Bosted Norways most beautiful road bridge, and for a reason. Have the camera ready while passing.  more »
