First up, planning Tip. Drive the Ring Road Clockwise from Reykjavik. I drove east first (anti-clockwise) and soon discovered, that puts you on the outer edge of mountain roads, steep elevations, no guard rails most of the time, and no hard shoulders to pull over;...More

There is so much to see! The waterfalls get mundane after a while, but not because they aren't beautiful. Most of them are easily accessible, making the waterfall tour a "drink-park-oogle-repeat" type of roadtrip. Half way through our driving we decided to switch it up...More

Eastern Iceland close to Reyðarfjörður where 96 is. Scenic is amazing! You'll have the feel of being within the Game of Thrones. To get there will will have to beat the strong winter wind and snow fall. Strongly suggest to go only with 4x4.

We had a blast! If you are only in Iceland a few days, or want to stay in cities rather than countryside, the best is to go to Reyjkavik and take day trips to the sights like waterfalls and geysirs and Blue Lagoon. But for...More

Hi Asoka, I am sorry but I just saw your question. The road conditions in August should be fine - your biggest challenge will be the number of tourists on the roads. Since you have 10 days, I would definitely rent a good 4... More
