    Why go to Austria and Norway in one trip? (unless its a trip of 4 or 5 months!)

    We went to Norway last year, did the Atlantic road and all I would say is that whilst the Atlantic Rd is good, there are much better places in Norway, which is generally superb. My advice would be to do the Atlantic Rd by all means, but carry on further north, eg to Lofoten, where there are more spectacular roads. The roads North towards Nordkapp are out of this world in terms of scenery.

    We went from Denmark to S Norway, all the way to the top, back through Finland and Sweden to Denmark. Best trip we have ever done.

    I would say take longer in Norway and do Austria on a different trip.
