Imagine zipping by Mt. Fuji-esque glaciers, rugged fjords and thundering waterfalls all on one continuous Icelandic road trip. The Ring Road, or Highway 1, is modern, well-marked and demands five to nine days to do it justice — you don’t want to miss the lava fields, wild ponies, black-sand beaches, Vikings and tiny fishing villages (not to mention possible sightings of elves, gnomes, fairies and huldufolk, or little people). Most travelers take on the 830-mile road going clockwise, setting out north from Reykjavík, the capital. You’ll overnight in small hotels and B&Bs, grabbing quick, cheap bites at popular gas-station restaurants or splurging on dinners of seafood or lamb. If you’d rather not maneuver a vehicle around a foreign country, try the Natural Wonders Tour from Iceland Saga Travel. The company offers 14-day Ring Road tours, during which they drive, and you stare out the window. icelandsagatravel.com
