The Ring Road extends around the coast of Iceland with a total length of 1,340 kilometres (833 miles). The road is mostly paved and very well maintained, however there are stretches of unpaved gravel surfaces in the eastern part of the country. The majority of the Ring Road is comprised of a single motorway with two traffic lanes, one in each direction. In some paces it may expand with more lanes when it passes through larger towns and cities. Iceland campsites
