Finnish national road 29 (Finnish: Valtatie 29; Swedish: Riksväg 29) is a highway in Finland between Keminmaa and Tornio. Most of its length is part of European route E8.


It is 16 kilometres (10 mi) long and it is the world's northernmost motorway/freeway (i.e. no at-grade crossings), with Alaska Highway 3 in Fairbanks, Alaska being the second northernmost. Road 29 has four lanes. From both ends of the "world's northernmost freeway", both ends of it have a segment of at-grade expressway after them.
