Cinematic Travel: ‘Around The Ring Road Of Iceland’

Uploaded April 12, 2023: The famous ‘Ring Road’ is a 1322 km (820 miles) loop connecting most towns and villages; a road trip renowned for its variety of scenery, passing many of Iceland’s most iconic sites.

The southern drive from Reykjavík to Egilsstaðir is the more scenic half, with waterfalls and glacial lagoons visible from the road. That is not to say this part of the country merits more of your time—only that there are more things to see and do along the Ring Road. Other regions reward a good detour, for instance along the Eastfjords or Snæfellsnes Peninsula. Travelers spending more than a week on the road should consider the scenic Arctic Coast Way and the Westfjords Way (Vestfjarðaleiðin).

“In September of last year, I had the opportunity to go on a father & son trip to Iceland, and I hope this video encourages you to do the same!”
