7 days itinerary driving on the Ring Road.
It seems like nowadays everyone is going to Iceland or wanting to go and we are some of them.
Iceland has been on our bucket list for awhile and for many reasons. When the opportunity opened up we didn’t even think twice. We had some free time in April and the urge to go somewhere new, so why not Iceland.
Although you can mostly see us traveling to tropical and warm destination, Iceland end up being one of those places that we surprisingly fell in love and plan to go back. It’s one of the best countries for a road trip, the landscape looked like out of this world with breathtaking scenery that changes literally every single turn.
You all have heard and read so many times that Iceland is “so expensive”, let me tell you that it’s absolutely possible to be done cheap and on a budget. So don’t put it on you “I wish to visit” list, but instead on the “I will visit” list without stressing that will break your bank.
We booked our flights with WOW Air only a week in advance, so we had only a few days to prepare. As fun and exciting is planning a road trip, it can also be a very overwhelming thing, as there countless things to see and do. One of the biggest challenges when planning a trip to Iceland is how to see everything in the limited time you have, how many days do you need, what to bring and where you should visit.
The best way to see and explore Iceland is by driving around the country on the famous Ring Road. Let me tell you this, Iceland is worth more than just few days on a stop over and seeing the Golden Circle. Seven days is the minimum what we suggest to at least see the main highlights. Our advice is to forget the tour groups and enjoy the country side on your own pace by renting your own wheels.
This itinerary is for driving the whole 1332 km Ring Road around Iceland the way we did it. If this doesn’t appeal to you, you can always just shorten the trip and do part of it.
