Iceland has one main road that encircles the island. This is known as Route 1, or the Ring Road. If you are unfamiliar with Iceland, the concept of a country with only one main road may be baffling. Taking the Ring Road in Iceland is the best way to travel as it is the one road in Iceland that is continually maintained and cleared of snow in winter. This road will quickly take you away from 70% of Iceland’s population who live in the Reykjavik area and show you quaint towns, charming turf-covered churches, volcanos, waterfalls, glaciers, and more. This epic drive truly showcases the best the country has to offer. Depending on how much time you have to spend, you can make the trip in a couple of days or stretch it over a week.
