Ring Road

Snæfellsnes Snaefellsnes Driving Guide

The Ring Road Video: An Adventure in Iceland

I traveled to Iceland this summer with Julia and Owen to explore the island’s waterfalls, mountain peaks, black sand beaches, glaciers, hot springs, geysers, and quaint villages. We rented a car upon arrival in Iceland and began our adventure on the Ring Road (Þjóðvegur 1). This 827.7 mile highway runs along the circumference of Iceland and connects to many roads that lead towards the island’s interior. On our Ring Road trip, we covered just north of 1,800 miles!

I put together a short video to highlight some of my favorite moments from our Iceland Ring Road adventure. Enjoy!

Snæfellsnes Snaefellsnes Driving Guide

A Driving Guide For The Snaefellsnes Peninsula

The Snæfellsnes Peninsula is a scenic peninsula in the west of Iceland that’s often referred to as “Iceland in Miniature” because of the way it highlights so many of the country’s natural treasures in such a small area. In this guide I will provide a map, photographs, and a detailed trip write up for those of you planning to explore the Snæfellsnes Peninsula.

A Guide To Driving North Iceland

The north of Iceland is far less renowned than the south, but has been gaining in popularity as tourists discover it’s riches. In this guide you’ll see volcanos, lava fields, waterfalls, hot springs, turf houses, and more. I will also provide a map, photographs, and a detailed trip write up if you’re planning to explore North Iceland on your visit.

Southeast Iceland Ring Road Jokulsarlon Seljalandsfoss Skógafoss Sólheimasandur

A Guide To Driving Southeast Iceland

After exploring Reykjavik and The Golden Circle on our drive of Iceland’s Ring Road, Julia, Owen, and I made our way towards the Southeast portion of the country. The Ring Road is a spectacle in it’s entirety, but if I had to choose one section to see again, I would choose the Southeast. With waterfalls, black sand beaches, basalt columns, puffins, and glacier lagoons, there is no shortage of incredible things to see. In this guide, I will provide a map, photographs, and a detailed trip write up for those of you planning to explore Southeast Iceland on your visit.

A Self Guided Walking Tour Of Reykjavík

For travelers driving Iceland’s Ring Road, there are a few activity options for their first day after flying into Keflavík airport. Some visit the Blue Lagoon, others head straight to the Golden Circle, but we chose to spend a day in Iceland’s capital city of Reykjavík. In this self guided walking tour I will provide a map, a downloadable GPX, and a detailed walking guide with photographs and information for the tour highlights.

I just returned from an epic vacation to one of the most beautiful countries I’ve ever visited. Over the last two weeks,  Julia, Owen, and I drove nearly 3000km on a road trip around Iceland.

For now, here are my favorite 40 photos that I hope will make you want to drive the Ring Road!
