Iceland is not a big country – but big enough to need a car to get around. Reykjavík is a colourful and vibrant city but the countryside holds most of Iceland’s charm. It’s possible to drive around the whole country in less than 24 hours, along its ring road. The ringroad is 1332km and only one lane each way. The whole of it is paved and for the most part of it, you won’t see many other cars on the road. It’s therefore very easy to drive along it.
