The land of ice and fire has so much natural beauty to offer, and unfortunately the public transport options once you get outside of the capital, Reykjavik, it is more or less impossible to get around without your own vehicle. Driving the Ring Road (also known as Route 1), which encircles the island, you'll get to see such natural wonders as the Blue Lagoon, Thingvellir National Park, Jokusarlon Glacial Lagoon and Dettifoss, but you won't see many other people or services, often for several hours. Therefore, it's important to remember to come well equipped with enough water, snacks, gas and even spare parts for your car.

And despite what you might have heard, Scottish accents (at least outside of Glasgow) are not that hard to understand!
