Traveling to Iceland

Edward Abbott Ravenscroft is a shareholder in Abbott Laboratories in Chicago, and attends the annual shareholder meetings. In his free time, Edward Abbott Ravenscroft enjoys traveling. He recently visited Iceland.

Iceland has become a major tourist destination, especially for travelers drawn to nature and adventure. Many visitors take the opportunity to drive along Route 1. Also known as the Ring Road, this highway runs more than 800 miles around the entire perimeter of the country.

If you’re interested in taking a trip around the Ring Road, do your research ahead of time and plan thoroughly. First of all, ensure that you rent a car that fits your trip. You’ll most likely want to get a vehicle with four-wheel drive that can handle all terrains and weather conditions. Secondly, make sure that you allocate enough time for the trip. A week should give you enough time to explore the country intimately and detour onto the side roads. That’s the third tip - make sure to deviate from the Ring Road. You’ll be amazed at what you can discover.
