What people are saying:

Highway 1, I thought it was a luxurious road. In fact, it is just an ordinary road with one road in both directions. In some places, there is only one road in both directions, which requires comity. But it is this road that gives me a very good driving feeling. First, it has a good view and can be seen by vehicles coming from a few kilometers away. Second, it is patchy, connected by hillsides, flat ground, and straight curves. The design is probably reasonable. Very comfortable. It is not like in China, where there are rest spots, meals, toilets and even accommodation on the road. The roadside is generally not allowed to stop, and must be suspended at a temporary parking place. There are a lot of center turntables when driving out of Lei City, so I will go straight in the future. The scenic spots along the road will have a certain distance, most of which are not too far away. There is no charge on the road, and there is no charge for parking at the scenic spots. You can buy food in the small towns along the way, and there are free toilets. But we still have enough food and drink in the big supermarket in Lei City. Salmon, sausage, bread, soda, etc.

Additional Information

Introduction

Route 1 was built in 1974. The road is also known as the “circular highway” because it forms a large circle that encircles the whole of Iceland. As one of Iceland's landmarks, the road is very popular with tourists. There is only one single lane on some sections of the road, passing through many bays, the subarctic desert and the Atlantic coast. Self-driving people will experience the double feeling of ice and fire. However, due to the old bridges along the roads and the lack of asphalt on some sections, it also adds a lot of difficulty to self-driving.
