We finally started our great Iceland road trip! 5 people, 10 days, one (smallish) hatchback, about 1,000 miles of Icelandic roads. . . and unlimited adventures. This was the trip I wanted to have in Iceland. An epic road trip to see as much as the country as I could.
The Plan: Our itinerary was to follow Route 1, also known as the Ring Road. The only exception was a two day detour to the Westfjords. The Ring Road is the national road of Iceland, connecting almost all the inhabited places in the country. We found driving in Iceland to be very easy. The roads were in good shape and the signs were easy to understand. We had heard that Iceland in the summer was very busy so we took no chances with accommodations and had a place booked every night to stay in.
