For me, the first question is an ethical one: Would I be doing more harm than good by visiting Iceland this summer? (To get your head around all of this, here’s a recent first-person account of visiting Iceland right now.) Europe’s ultimate road trip is Iceland’s Ring Road: 800 stunning miles on Highway 1, looping around the perimeter of the island. (The only ailment I’ve ever picked up in Iceland was a wicked case of athlete’s foot from a thermal swimming pool.) I’m still thinking about it, and keeping an eye on how those first few weeks’ worth of visitors are finding Iceland (and how Iceland is finding them).
