Now this is how you do a road trip.
Having explored Andalusia and Transylvania in previous years, the Lamborghini Avventura for 2018 took in the stunning landscapes and roads of Norway. The 500 km (310 miles) route started in Alesund, a pretty town situated on the northern part of the interconnected islands that form part of Norway’s famous fjords. The convoy of six Lamborghinis consisting of the latest Huracan and Aventador models then took on the mighty Trollstigen, a winding stretch of road that incorporates eleven hairpins as it snakes up a nearly vertical cliff face.
This piece of challenging road has regularly featured on ‘top ten best driving roads’ lists in recent years and experiencing it in something as visceral and engaging as a Lamborghini must be a truly memorable experience. The group which included a 631-hp Huracan Performante and 730-hp Aventador S then continued to Valldal, known for its stunning strawberries. They then took in Geirangerfjord, which is listed as a world heritage site by UNESCO and is as stunning to look at as the Trollstigen is to drive.
The convoy of mid-engined supercars then continued across Jostedalsbreen, the largest glacier in Europe, stopping over in Loen and were then ferried across to Mount Aksla which provided a bird’s eye view of their original starting point, the stunning town of Alesund. Each year the Lamborghini Avventura takes in ever more stunning locations and roads, while it is unlikely that we will crack an invite to this exclusive gathering next year, they have definitely given us a good idea of where we would like to head to on our next motoring holiday.
