Iceland has a road called The Ring Road that circles the perimeter of the country. Since Iceland is so small (only 40,000 square miles) you can literally drive around the entire country on this road in a day! I travelled with a couple of friends on a two-week road trip adventure. We started our journey in Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik and headed to the South first before making our loop around the country. Check out some of the incredible scenery and interesting stuff we found along the way!
We saw many beautiful horses along the side of the road! Farmers use the horses to round up sheep in the Icelandic highlands, but most horses are used for competition and leisure riding.
Our amazing driver, Marissa! She drove us around the entire ring road!
We got to see the Strokkur geyser in the Golden Circle! It erupts every 5-10 minutes.
Since horses here have few diseases, Icelandic law prevents horses from being imported into the country and exported animals are not allowed to return.
This truck wasn’t so lucky when it toppled off the road. Thankfully no one was hurt! We had to check the weather multiple times a day since it changes fast and is different throughout the country.
Hot dogs for the road! Yum!
