Postcard from the Ring Road

August 1, 2013 in Europe,Iceland,Places,Postcards

It’s fairly easy to navigate Iceland: there’s one road that loops around the entire country. Commonly known as the Ring Road, Highway 1 is roughly 830 miles of two lanes through glaciers and rolling hills, next to beaches and waterfalls.

As we drove across from Reykjavik to Hofn onย the ultimate Iceland road trip, I made sure that we didn’t get (too) lost when we veered off the Ring Road and I took plenty of photos. Let’s just say that it’sย ย not a bad view from the passenger seat.
