Self-Drive Holidays

SELF - DRIVE HOLIDAYS

Driving in Iceland is a real pleasure. The road system in is well developed and easy to navigate. Route 1, commonly know as the Ring Road was completed in 1974 and soon became the most travelled route in Iceland. The route is open all-year-tound however weather conditions in winter can cause temporary closures. Most major highways are paved, but most of the countryside road system is made up of gravel roads, particularly in the highlands. These roads can be in various conditions, with potholes or washboard surfaces, but with extra attention and care you will have a comfortable driving tour.

Our self-drive tours of Iceland provide the opportunity to explore the land at your own pace. We will book your accommodations in advance so you can have a fun day driving around and enjoying the beautifl countryside. To make your driving experience easy and relaxing we will provide  a very detailed travel itinerary in English including maps and information about driving in Iceland.

 All roads are easy to follow and are numbered. Highland routes are also signed but some have unbridged rivers and need extra care and should not be attempted alone!

The minimum age for driving a rented car in Iceland is 23 for 4WD jeeps, vans and mini vans. For all other vehicle types the minimum age is 20 years. All European and US driving licences are valid in Iceland. Visitors from other countries should check with their local motoring organisation.

Drive on the right, keep your headlights and seatbelts on at all times and enjoy the freedom of the open road!

Just wanted to tell you what a fantastic job you did for Peggy & I for our unescorted trip to Sweden & Norway. The hotels were all very, very comfortable and a perfect location for our traveling by train. The staff @ Freys hotel in Stockholm was exceptionally helpful and friendly- we highly recommend all the hotels you picked. The Sorgneford in a nutshell trip was spectacular AND, we even had good weather! We had a wonderful time, thank YOU! - BB -
