The Ring Road Photography Tour is amazing. In the book “1000 Places To Visit Before You Die” The Ring Road is said to be one of those 1000 places. Why? “America’s closest European neighbour, vast, volcanic Iceland is sadly misnamed. In fact it is about 89% ice free, and boasts one of the planet’s most incredible landscapes, full of contrast and extremes. Medieval Europeans popularly believed it to be the threshold of the underworld, and Jules Verne chose a volcano here as the entranceway for his Journey to the Center of the Earth. The word geyser was coined here, named after Geysir, the largest of the island’s many spouting hot springs.
There are also lava fields, bubbling mud pools, and steam vents, but look in another direction and you’ll see plenty of ice, including the dramatic glacial lagoon at Jokulsarlon, famous for icebergs that break off from the glacier face and form an ever-changing maze for chugging tour boats. In yet another direction, you’ll see pristine farms and extraordinarily green grasslands, mostly along the coast. The two-lane Ring Road (or Route 1- the only show in town) runs in a 860-mile circuit around much of the island, taking in everything from ocean scenery to the empty, treeless tundra to the fire and ice of the interior. Motorists may feel as if they’ve returned from a trip to the moon when they return to Reykjavik, the world’s northernmost capital.” And in winter we have the aurora as an addition. Bring your warm clothes.
