Iceland car rental Ring Road (route 1) driving

The Iceland’s Ring Road, by some called The Ultimate Road Trip but by icelanders route 1 or simply Hringvegurinn, is just over 1300 km. long and the most popular one to drive when traveling in Iceland.

The Ring Road connects towns and villages around the country and gives access to the Highland. For visitors to Iceland it is very popular to rent a car and drive the Ring Road. A minimum time of 7 days is recommended as there are many interresting places to visit.

The Ring Road is all asphalt but care should be taken as it is only one lane road in each direction. Several one-lane bridges are on the way which extra care should be taken.

Iceland is different so it is important for you to see as much as possible during your stay. Enjoy our unique nature and spectacular scenery in an Iceland car rental from Thrifty.
