Be prepared for sunrise splendor at Cumberland Gap National Historical Park. It’s a thrill watching the sun paint the sky from the park’s Pinnacle Overlook. Here you have views of Kentucky, Virginia and Tennessee. On clear days, you can even see the Great Smoky Mountains in North Carolina – a sight that’s 100 miles away!

Trollstigen is a serpentine road in Norway. It is popularly known for its steep inclines and 11 hairpin bends. During peak season, 2,500 cars can pass through daily.
Opened by King Haakon VII in 1936, vehicles over 13m long, such as buses, are banned from travelling on the road. The road is also closed during certain times of the year due to the dangerous effect weather can have.
