Driving in Iceland

Driving in Iceland might be quite different from what you are used to. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you check the following information on the internet:


Here, you will find descriptions of what you can expect, and guidelines about how to handle the different situations that might arise. There is a video that you can watch, and a brochure you can download.

It is also important to realise, that there are mountain roads, which all have numbers that begin with the letter F, which cannot be driven in anything but a good 4-wheel-drive vehicle. There might be rivers that you have to drive through, so you will really need a car that is equipped for that. Fortunately, it is possible to rent such cars, if you want to take one of the highland routes. For programs that do not cross the interior of Iceland, normal cars are sufficient.
