Lonely Planet (UK) - - Best Road Trips Picos De Europa -

Start/End // Reyk­javík Dis­tance // 830 miles (1,336km) Get­ting there // Ice­land has be­come far more ac­ces­si­ble in re­cent years, with more flights ar­riv­ing from more des­ti­na­tions. Ferry trans­port (from north­ern Den­mark) is a good al­ter­na­tive for Euro­peans wish­ing to take their own car. When to drive // June to Au­gust is peak sea­son, with higher prices and book­ings re­quired way ahead. This is also end­less-day­light sea­son, with plenty of ac­tiv­i­ties and fes­ti­vals to draw you ever on­ward. May and Septem­ber are op­ti­mal if you pre­fer fewer crowds and lower prices over cloud­less days. Hot tip // Don’t rush – al­lo­cate 10 to 14 days to driv­ing the Ring Road, at a min­i­mum. With just a week to spend in Ice­land, con­cen­trate on one or two re­gions in de­tail.
