Arguably the best way to experience Iceland is by road. There's no traffic, no waiting around, no huge crowds or tour buses ruining your photos in the background — it's just you, the awesome beauty of the land of fire and ice, and the long, winding road ahead.

You'll have the opportunity to explore the island for a full week, giving you plenty of time to drive to the most iconic places in the area. You'll come across Icelandic glaciers, waterfalls, hot springs, geysers, lavafields, mountains, cliffs and so much more as you drive along.
The trip is planned out in a way that brings you to a different destination every day. This will help you make the most of your time while in Iceland, as you aren't completely left scrambling to figure out where to go to next.
