Things to Know About Driving in Iceland

  • play_arrowPublic transport in Iceland is limited

    Public transport in Iceland is limited outside large cities, so if you are planning to explore Iceland’s abundance of natural landscapes, renting a car is your best bet.

  • play_arrowThe Golden Circle

    The Golden Circle is the most popular road trip, covering 3 of Iceland’s most iconic natural destinations - Thingvellir National Park, Gullfoss Waterfall, and Geysir Geothermal Area. There are a number of smaller attractions to hit on this route if time allows.

  • play_arrowF-Roads

    F-Roads are roads within Iceland’s Highlands, found primarily in the center of the country. They often have more difficult conditions and are only open during the summer months, so only 4x4 vehicles are permitted here. Driving offroad in any vehicle is illegal and punishable by hefty fines.

  • play_arrowSpeed limits

    Speed limits in Iceland are notoriously low and speeding fines are particularly high. In urban areas, limits are typically 50 km/h, gravel roads observe 80 km/h limits, and paved roads 90 km/h. If you incur fees on your rental car, you will likely be charged a handling fee by your rental car company on top of the fine fees.

  • play_arrowHeadlights

    Headlights should be used at all times, throughout daytime and nighttime hours, no matter the season in Iceland.

  • play_arrowBeware of sheep

    Beware of sheep that are beside roads, as they can often dart in front of incoming traffic. This can injure animals and damage vehicles, so it’s important to be careful.
