What is Kystriksveien?

Kystriksveien goes by several names in English. Besides the original, Kystriksveien, the coastal road or the coastal route, or even Fv17 (short for Fylkesvei 17) are common. The county road Fv 17 starts at Asp just north of Steinkjer in Trøndelag, and ends at Løding, 15 kilometres east of the center of Bodø. However, the Kystriksveien as a term encompasses more than the road stretch Fv 17. Kystriksveien is also the exciting detours and the numerous islands along the coast!

Kystriksveien is a stretch of road, but not one you travel to get from A to B as quickly as possible. A travel along Kystriksveien is about enjoying the scenery, experiencing and exploring the coastal nature, history and culture. On these pages, we want to inspire you to travel slowly and experience more of this beautiful part of the Norwegian coast.
