If you are thinking about traveling the beautiful country of Iceland then don’t think any longer, purchase your ticket immediately you won’t regret it. I purchased a ticket for two weeks rented a camper-van and had some of the best experiences of my life, here is how my journey went.
I had quite a hard time deciding on what vehicle to get being that I was traveling in the end of winter, but I still ended up with a two wheel drive van and was completely fine the entire trip even with the whole highway not being paved!
Fuel was a bit expensive but splitting it between three made it not to bad spending just around 150 dollars each for a 900 mile drive, so I would recommend bringing a friend or two.
We began driving the ring road in the beginning of March and immediately after leaving the airport I realized this trip would be like no other.
Stopping almost every ten minutes to look at another unbelievable sight, waterfalls, cliffs and beautiful glaciers as far as the eye can see! That even barely scratches the surface of what you can experience in this country.
I recommend checking the weather as often as possible clear sky’s mean a good chance of seeing the northern lights, and let me tell you that is definitely something that needs to be on your bucket list if it is not already!
I was a little upset the first half of the trip having such crazy unpredictable weather thinking I may not have the chance to see them but sure enough we lucked out and had clear sky’s for a few nights, we stayed up into the late hours of the night in the freezing cold watching the sky light up!
Iceland is a place unlike any other, so when you go make sure to pack a few extra pair of cloths due to rain out of no where or running under the biggest waterfall you can find lol! If you looking to save a few bucks eat at grocery stores as much as possible don’t go out to eat! And finally make sure not to do any driving at night because I promise you, you are going to drive by something that you would have wished you could have stopped at. We finished the ring road in only 8 days with plenty of extra time to spare for other activities! So if your looking for a good old fashioned road trip with guaranteed laughs and unbelievable sight seeing this is the trip for you!
