When you are told you’ll be driving a Lamborghini for a two-day road trip, your imagination goes into overdrive. You think of whipping along the autostrada, dashing through Parma and Milano, before climbing up to Courmayeur and the Mont Blanc tunnel. You expect dappled light casting shadows on the dash, Matt Monroe on the stereo and hours that last for weeks. At least, I do.
As my aeroplane’s wheels touch down on the runway at Reykjavik airport, however, it is clear this is not to be. Iceland is not normally bathed in rich, warm light, nor does it have roads that flick through valleys or bisect villages. This is a tough, unforgiving region that is battered by the North Atlantic’s worst weather. It is not a place you’d normally pilot the latest Lamborghini.
