Iceland is one of the most beautiful countries I have visited. If you are into photography, you will be in your element. The Iceland ring road loops more or less around the entire country and if you have time to do the loop, I would highly recommend the road trip. We hired a car and drove around and stayed in hostels and Airbnb's along the way but I would like to go back and do it in a campervan.

If you don't have time to drive the Iceland ring road then you could drive the golden circle route which you can read about here.

Here are my favourite pictures of our road trip around the Iceland ring road:
