Iceland: Ring road in brief

Few moments from Ring road

Bellow the gallery – see 1 week itinerary for trip – Iceland ring road.
But do you really want to do Icelandic ring road in 1 week?  It may not be a good idea, see bellow why.


Do you plan to do Iceland ring road in 1 week? or 7 nights?

Yes it is doable, BUT !

Think wisely before doing so. There is so many things to see on the way, if you have closer look on itinerary you will see there is almost 50 places, each worth to see it. I recommend to make this Iceland Ring road trip in minimum 12 days. 

Ring road in 1 week means you will rush a lot, you will spend a lot of time in the vehicle, and running from one place to another, without really possibility to make some treks, to feel the nature , the energy of places, or with no way going little deeper into nature. I have traveled a lot around the world, and I did that Iceland ring road in 1 week (ok 8 days), but I would not do that again. I would simply take more time for that.

With 12 days, you can go to places where there are no or little tourists, little visitors and have a chance to enjoy the travel much better. You can do treks, you can enjoy thermal pools, waterfalls, you can feel the nature and how the planet breathes.

Finally here you are the Itinerary for the road trip Icelandic Ring road, and it is up to you how you  which days you extend or how you split these within your timeline.
