Europe’s best road trip circles Iceland, from Reykjavík to Reykjavík, on the 800-mile Highway 1 — the Ring Road. But if you can spare more time, it’s worth investing a full week (or more) in driving the Ring Road. The Ring Road is an 800-mile loop. I did the entire Ring Road in a dinky Hyundai and never felt unsafe or underpowered. The Eastfjords, while majestic, represent the most tedious part of the Ring Road drive.
