We mostly drove around the edges of fjords but in one case we drove through a mountain in a 6-kilometer tunnel. I had to chuckle at our Icelandic tour guide. Iceland has virtually no trees, unless they've been planted within the last few decades. Our guide was claustrophobic. On a recent hunting trip to Canada, he flew into Halifax, Nova Scotia and rented a car and drove to Quebec to meet up with friends. Driving through New Brunswick--with its densely-forested highways--he said he almost panicked because he thought the road was closing in on him.
