the world's most spectacular roads

 

The scenic 232 km long Diamond Ring Road (also known as The Diamond Circle), is a mix of paved and unpaved route with a beautiful scenario, and a popular tourist route in North Iceland.

This loop road offers many interesting and beautiful places of Iceland. The road starts in Husavik, on the north coast of Iceland on the shores of Skjálfandi bay, and goes by the stunning Dettifoss waterfall and the gorgeous lake Myvatn, before coming back to Husavik.

  

Watch out for sudden loose-gravel breaks. And that asphalt paving can ripple like a roller coaster track in places where “frost heaves” are caused by seasonal freezing and thawing of the ground. The route goes through Húsavík, Lake Mývatn and Laugar and goes past Dettifoss Waterfall, Ásbyrgi Canyon and Eider falls.

  

The unpaved sections of the road can be impassable when wet. In any case, driving 4WD is recommended due to uneven surface. During and after a storm the road may be impassable, even with a four-wheel-drive vehicle and can easily get muddy if it rains making it challenging to get through.

May I simply just say what a relief to uncover a person that
truly understands what they are talking about online.

You actually understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
A lot more people have to look at this and understand this side of the story.
It's surprising you aren't more popular because you surely
have the gift.

I've been browsing online more than 3 hours nowadays,
but I by no means found any interesting article like yours.

It is lovely worth enough for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you probably did, the web will likely be a lot more useful than ever before.

certainly like your web site however you need to test the spelling
on several of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very troublesome to inform the reality then again I'll definitely come back again.
