The most beautiful roads in the world.

Forget traffic jams and long phases of traffic lights. These roads offer pure driving pleasure and enjoyment.

18 May 2018

"The path is the goal" is a famous Buddhist maxim that many of us will be familiar with, whether from a motivational poster or mindfulness literature. It is thought it was first articulated by ancient Chinese philosopher Confucius and remains a popular saying to this day. But in our hundred-miles-an-hour, hyper-modern times, this philosophical approach to life is too often lost. So it’s time to take Confucius at his word by starting your engine and driving to pastures new to find enlightenment on the world’s most beautiful roads.

So close to the sea: Although it’s under 10 kilometres long, the Norway’s Atlantic Road still has a lot to offer. Within this distance, you’ll cross eight epic bridges, each one more impressive than the next. The section between Molde and Kristiansund, part of Highway 64, ensures your journey will stretch from island to island without coming close to getting your feet wet.

Corners with swing: In the Transylvanian Alps between the Romanian regions of Great Wallachia and Transylvania, you’ll find the Transfagarasan, a paradise for corner hunters. The DN7C road takes you through this route from Baskov to Cartisoara. Passing through an awe-inspiring alpine environment, it is no mere link road. So that the Romanians use this 117-kilometre-long route for the Sibiu Cycling Tour mountain race every year.

GREAT OCEAN ROAD, AUSTRALIA.

Great Ocean Road.Great Ocean Road.

Fascination Down Under: The name says it all on the Great Ocean Road, which winds its way along Australia's southern coast and conjures up a outstanding panorama through your windscreen. Officially named the B100, the road runs over 240 kilometres west of Melbourne, from the seaside towns of Torquay to Allansford. You’ll pass through national parks, along cliffs, past lighthouses and – as can be seen in the picture – the well-known Twelve Apostles rock formation. If you don’t get your driving money's worth here, then something’s gone horribly wrong.
