Driven to distraction: the Norway road trip where cool design meets dramatic scenery

Vertigo-inducing viewing platforms, island-hopping bridges, and some of the funkiest toilet facilities in the northern hemisphere: these are just a sample of the design flourishes that Norway’s National Tourist Routes program (NTR) has introduced across the country over the past 15 years.
