Driving in Iceland

There is no better way to see everything Iceland has to offer than with a fantastic Iceland fly drive holiday. Take a flight from the UK to the capital of Reykjavik and then pick up the car of your choice from the airport. From there, you are in control!

Iceland’s spectacular attractions, such as its glaciers, volcanoes and hot springs, can be found in beautiful pockets all over the country, filling every corner with colour and possibility. Whereas it’s perfectly fine to walk or cycle within the capital, Reykjavík, the best way to get out of the city and explore these incredible places is undoubtedly by driving a car. Map your own routes, see a vast variety of landscapes and stay in a wide range of Icelandic hotels with an Iceland fly drive holiday.

To get the best out of driving in Iceland, we highly recommend hiring a 4x4 car. This way you can go on your own Northern Lights hunt, reach remote Highland locations and spend as long at each attraction as you like.

The ring road that extends around the coast of Iceland reaches a total length of 832 miles and although the road is mostly paved and very well maintained, there are some stretches of unpaved gravel surfaces in the eastern part of the country. Because of this, a 4x4 car rental is a must have!

We have a huge range of cars to hire in Iceland so check out our Iceland car hire services here and start planning your own Iceland fly drive adventure!
