This 620 km scenic road sweeps through Laplands' strikingly beautiful nature. This arctic highway is situated at the border of Finland and Sweden, and will take you from Tornio all the way up to Tromso, which is considered to be one of Norwegian's most magical cities. Dazzled by pine-dotted snowcapped mountains, shimmering lakes and majestic fjords this road might treat you with some mystifying Northern Lights while on route during winter time.

Please note: in winter use (studded) winter tires, or chains if the snow on the road hasn't been cleared. Moreover, in Finland you are obliged to have your headlights switched on at all times!
