Landscapes of the Ring Road
Iceland’s Ring Road, aka Route 1, slices through enormously diverse landscapes – lush farmland, stark volcanic formations, canyons, fjords, mountains studded with glaciers and powerful waterfalls – over and over again. Nowhere does the scenery change so quickly and dramatically as along this evocative route. Though the Ring Road itself is 830 miles around, most drivers find that the urge to venture off onto secondary roads for a few hours or a day is too rewarding to resist.
