I’m not going to tell you where this road is. I’ll give you a hint; it’s outside Reykjavik. It’s not open in the winter. It’s not Route 1.
Iceland is experiencing huge increases in tourism, and the area around the capital crawls with tourists. Some of them are respectful and traveling well…but a lot are demanding and want to change the area to suit their (fancy pants) desires.
But there are genuinely places in Iceland that are the way it must have been in the past, wild and beautiful and empty. I’d like to keep my favourite road that way.
