Iceland bound-Ring Road road rally?

Jump to last reply

DH and I have finally settled on Iceland for an Aug or Sept trip. So far we have four different travel books and lots of information from posts on this site (maybe too much information....most of it has formed one big jumble in my brain). We are thinking of a two week trip around the ring road, but I am worried that we will end up spending too much time in the car. Any thoughts on this from anyone who has done it? I know the mileage, but it is hard to estimate how long the driving will take. Our main interests are hiking and nature photography, and we prefer independent travelling to tours. Also, what in your opinion are the "don't miss" hikes and/or drives?
Thanks in advance
