Iceland's main road is the 1 (otherwise known as Ring Road) and it can be traveled in its entirety in about 20 hours in just under 830 miles. However, you'll want to stop at every beautiful waterfall and glacier you see, so it'll definitely take you longer than 20 hours. In an effort to share my experience with you all and help you plan your own trip, here's a little rundown of our plan!
DAY ONE - SOUTHERN RING ROAD
Driving from Reykjavik to our Airbnb near Höfn, we stopped at these sights in order:
1. Seljalandsfoss: This waterfall is about 2 hours from Reykjavik and can be seen as you're driving on Ring Road. You can actually walk behind this stunner. But prepare to get wet!
2. Skogafoss: This one was my favorite! There are stairs to the right of the waterfall that lead you to a view that includes the Skoga River above. It's a bit of a hike but well worth it for a view of the river pouring off of the cliff.
