Many believe German's Autobahns are exclusive to speed-limitless areas of road, but those in-the-know think of the Isle of Man. This island, off the coast of England's west coast, features many areas where you can drive or ride as quickly as you deem safe. This, alone, makes conquering the Snaefell Mountain Road an adventure, but add in that this road runs through the highest-elevation center of the Isle of Man, along with excellent sweeping bends, a two-lane pave, and great scenery, and you have yourself a road more than worthy of making our list. Have a look below for a video featuring this great bit of paved wonder.
*Note: Drive safely, ensure you know the speed ratings of your tires
There's a reason many, many automakers film television commercial ads on Norway's Atlantic Ocean Road: it's breathtaking. The speed limit is painfully slow, the route is short, and the traffic is likely to be terrible. Even with these considered, the absolute awe one experiences at this civil engineering marvel is worth the trip. Many towns with hotels, restaurants and the likes are nearby, so no worries there. This is the sort of place you stare at the road more than drive -- have a look as to why via watching the below drone video.
Like Iceland's Route 1, Scotland's NC500 is more about the trip than the road. The North Coast 500 features an abundance of history, culture, and nature, so conquering this road is an experience that satisfies the mind. Take a slow ride or drive, enjoy the scenery and stops, or pull out the cycle occasionally to challenge your legs. Whatever your motivation may be, this road is one to seek out. You will not be disappointed.
