The gorgeous road, part of the National Tourist Route, is a 90-kilometre-long stretch of road between Gryllefjord and Botnhamn on the island Senja in the county of Troms in Northern Norway. In addition, the official route includes detours to Mefjordvær and Husøya, for an additional 12 kilometres of road.

The winding asphalted road (Road 86/862) is narrow here and there (occasionally quite narrow) as it twists and turns travelling along one of the most beautiful landscapes in Norway. The scenery is stunning. You will stop every minute to admire the steep mountains that plunge deep into the ocean.
