Iceland’s Ring Road
Iceland’s iconic Ring Road is a dream trip for landscape photographers that’s cheaper and easier to reach this year thanks to new routes from low-cost carrier WOW air and a fantastic dollar-to-krona conversion. Fly into the capital Reykjavik and set off on a week-long self-drive tour past this Nordic nation’s rumbling volcanoes, spitting geysers, and glittering glaciers, stopping each night in far-flung towns whose people are as colorful as the homes they live in.
