Driving in Iceland



Conditions in Iceland are in many ways unusual and may often be quite unlike what you are accustomed to at home. It is therefore very important to get acquainted with how to drive in this country.
 
Please visit the website safetravel.is for further information 
When thinking about booking a self-drive tour or renting a car a few questions might come to mind, such as:

  • Are all the roads paved or may I expect gravel roads when driving around the island?
  • Is it safe to drive during winter?
  • Where can I find more information about road conditions, weather forecast and sign posts?
