Car Hire Iceland

Iceland is a country where Nature is still hard at work. With geysers spouting, mud pots bubbling, glaciers on the move through lava fields, and Arctic winds blasting across the fjords, Iceland has a sublime beauty best discovered by renting a car and exploring. Take a dip in a soothing geothermal lagoon, hike across sparkling ice caps, and catch your breath as the aurora borealis spreads its light show across the midnight sky.

Iceland Driving Rules & Regulations

Iceland has a comprehensive and easily navigable road network. Highway no. 1, generally known as the Ring Road, is the most used route and remains open all year, although weather conditions can prompt temporary closures during winter. Most major highways are paved, but much of the road system is made up of gravel roads. Take care driving these roads, as loose gravel can be difficult to drive in, and debris can damage your rental car.

You'll find information on Iceland's rules of the road here.
