ROAD TRIP ITINERARY

The Epic 12 Days – Iceland Ring Roadtrip Itinerary

August 7, 2018

So, this is my personal iceland ring roadtrip route. It took me exactly 7 days and over 50 hours to research everything , book everything, layout everything. I guess, this is the best road trip route for iceland, anyone can do. I have gone through 100s of ring road route plans and itineraries but none were promising. I went ahead and planned it myself stop by stop and it looks amazing now.

NOTE – This is my personal route plan, as my interests are only into photography, filming and droning. Im not into activities or hikes. I like to drive, film the nature, film myself, do vlogs, shoot, edit and upload everyday.

Im planning to release my hardbook for Iceland once I get back. Now the route plan with my detailed dates, stops, accomodation, everything.
