Driving an F-Road in Iceland

So one of the bunches of reasons you should always opt to rent a capable 4x4 when traveling, is that you get access to some of the bumpiest, craziest and yet most serene roads you'll ever drive on. In Iceland (otherwise known as the most beautiful place on Earth), there are countless detours off of Route 1, 'The Ring Road' that take you to small towns, along scenic fjords and up mountain passes. There are also F-Roads, rough, rugged roads only accessible via a vehicle with high-ground clearance and four-wheel drive. In fact, you have to have a 4x4 by Icelandic law to drive on an F-Road. Here's a video I took of me driving an F-Road in Sn√¶fellsj√∂kull National Park. The whip is a Suzuki Jimny 4x4 with a proper manual-transmission. Oh! And since I've had a few requests to write a blog post on the cars I saw in Iceland, that's coming up soon. Stay tuned.
