Portrait - Iceland´s ringroad

Since 1974, drivers have been able to easily circumnavigate Iceland on the country’s 1,332-kilometre ring road, known as Hringvegur, or Route 1. In winter, the drive around the island should not be underestimated: without all-wheel drive and snow chains, many passages prove impassable, and even the strongest headlamps are not much help in the eternal polar night.

Those eager to explore the volcanic landscape to the left and right of Route 1 should definitely check out the rental car category “monster trucks”. It’s no wonder this lunar landscape was used for the iciest scenes in the fantasy film “Game of Thrones”.
