I recently completed a seven (7) day tour of Iceland with Nice Travel. It was a profound experience for me as the magic of Iceland unfolded day-after-day. This experience was made even better by the competence of our guides, Mika and Fjola. From the safety...More

Largely following the outskirts of Iceland, the Ring Road is the main road you will use if touring this unique land. It is almost all paved and most of it just two lanes, making passing at times a challenge. The road traverses glaciers, farms, volcanoes,...More

In addition to being the main highway in Iceland, the drive offers beautiful scenery all the way around. Highly recommend everyone to drive part of it.

The drive from Reykjavik to the fjords in the east was excellent. But past that, I don't get the hype at all. And the road is a two lane road with no shoulder...any accident is likely to be catastrophic to both car and to passengers....More

Just drove the ring road over 9 days. Fantastic range of experiences from gushing waterfalls, to geothermal landscapes, to whale watching, to bird watching, to angling, to hiking wonderfully diverse landscapes, to eating out. Highly recommended in Spring.

The Ring Road is a beautiful place to tour but keep your eyes open. While we were visiting there was a fatality. Numerous tourists with very little driving experience find themselves in ditches, crossing the center line, and pulling over in the middle of the...More

The main tourist ring though South Iceland is the smaller Golden Circle, which includes some good sites (with heavy tourist traffic). The Ring Road route (traversing the entire country via the only highway) includes vastly more breathtaking beauty, diversity, and gets you away from the...More

We spent 2 days going around ring road and to Vik to explore south coast. We found the beauty of Icelandic landscape mesmerising. Roads are good to average but they are well signposted. Some sections of the roads could be crowded with tourist traffic. There...More

Hi there. The best way to do it in my experience is to rent a car and just go with it. The only problem with this approach on August is that there's not much available space on hotels and you may end up paying extra or... More

There are tons of little marked "pull-off" spots along the Ring Road for taking photos. Some are larger than others. I also found the signage about attractions to be pretty good, in general.
