Another Monday, another commute to work. Whether you catch a train, tube, bus or drive, not many people would describe their commute as a highlight of their day.

You might do if you live in Norway, though. A five-mile journey along the stunning Atlantic Ocean Road, or Atlanterhavsveien, might be the world’s best commute. This 360-degree video shows the road winding through several tiny islands with a skyline of snow-peaked mountains and views of the ocean either side.

The virtual journey starts at the coastal town of Averøy, takes in eight bridges, including the route’s longest – the Storseisundet Bridge – with its distinctive curve design, and ends on the Norway mainland.

The UN World Happiness Report 2017 named Norway as the happiest place to live and with commutes like this, it’s no surprise. Teacher Gunnhild Bae-Pettersen, who does this drive every day to work, says: “For me, it is just a part of my life. I don’t think about it as a really amazing thing. But sometimes it just strikes me that – wow – it is.”

Confused.com, who made the video to help commuters escape the weekday rush, found that 40% of commuters would actually change jobs for a better commute to work.

We don’t blame you for googling jobs on the Norway coast.
