Hana Highway – Hawaii
This road, which runs along the north-east coast of Maui, is considered one of the most scenic in the world, with over 600 curves and 54 bridges. The absence of galleries and the many curves make this particularly way go slowly.
Trollstigen – Norway
Perhaps the most spectacular road of the gallery due to its extreme curves and Stigfossen waterfall that intersects it in its descent down the mountainside.
