The Road Trip: Iceland

Start planning an adventure around this Nordic Island country now.

Iceland touches the edge of the Arctic Circle, a location which, in the summer, brings ideal temperatures teetering between “not too hot” and “not too cold,” plus daylight is stretched just enough to fit two days of activities into one. These begin as early as late spring, and by May the sun is waiting until 10pm to set, but back up by 5am. Seeing the “best of” over a short break is thus quite possible. Start planning your journey now and opt for a four-day roadtrip to the south of the country, the land ruled by glacial lagoons, black sand beaches, and waterfalls, for a first taste of why travelers just can’t get enough of this untamed country.
