Iceland: Travel the Ring Road

Iceland is a breathtaking place in the truest sense of the word. Behind every tall mountain facing the ocean, past every volcanic field, and across every waterfall there is another wonder waiting to be seen. If you’ve ever read Norse mythology, you’d appreciate how the landscape fueled creation of the characters and their stories.

This should serve as a simple guide to the Icelandic Ring Road accompanied with pictures throughout each day.
