The Hey Guide travel assistant


Getting you there but adding value along the way

Hit the Icelandic roads without the worry of finding your way, accommodation, or highlights along the way, to truly focus on the experience and enjoy the moment. Our Hey Guide app was designed to assist you on your journey in Iceland, showing your personalized day-to-day itinerary. The guide gives you recommendations along the way, and helpful information regarding driving conditions, weather forecast, and more. How does it all work?

1. Your customized Iceland tour

Each of our self-drive tours come with our Hey Guide app. Its interface gives you access to your personalized itinerary and allows you to make some changes during your trip, with over 3,000 places of interest included. The GPS navigation system ensures you a hassle-free trip, taking you to your hotel after a packed day of adventures, and giving you helpful insights about daily distances and estimated driving times.

2. Stay safe & updated

At Hey Iceland, we believe that an informed driver is a happy driver. This is why our Hey Guide provides you with access to the weather forecast, road conditions and you get a notification in case of weather alert. Driving in Iceland can be totally different from driving in other countries, so we recommend you check our Hey Guide to Driving in Iceland in Summer and Driving in Iceland in Winter and take the habit of checking the weather forecast before you start each day.

3. Stay connected & share your experience

The Wi-Fi and 4G allow you to be connected and reachable from any place in Iceland. We are also available at any time through the messenger system, to chat with you, provide you with guidance, or to hear your impressions on your trip!
