Getting around and traveling to the must-see locations of Iceland is easier with self-drive rental cars. Opting to explore Iceland in a rental car provides the liberty to set your own itinerary and also to stop when something looks attractive or unusual. Driving in Iceland is a distinct pleasure with roads relatively free of cars when compared to the UK, France or Germany.
Iceland is a divine destination for nature lovers, activities enthusiasts and those with an interest in culture. Reykjavik and towns such as Akureyri and Hofn along its 5,000km coastline boast interesting museums and cultural sites. Residents of Icelandic towns and cities are welcoming.
Most of the roads in the country are two-lane and meander through timeless landscapes with majestic snow-capped peaks accentuating their beauty. Highway 1 is the Iceland ring road and drivers could start out from Reykjavik and drive either north or east and arrive back in the city 1,350kms later. Itís a large island that you imagine, sparsely populated.
Taking Iceland self-drive tours north out of Reykjavik leads first to the Westfjords Peninsula. Drangajokull Glacier, Westfjords Heritage Museum and Hornstrandir National Park are among the attractions here. Travelling east from Westfjords, Highway 1 goes to Akureyri, and the ferry departure port for Grimsey Island, before reaching Egilsstadir.
Egilsstadir is the gateway to Borgarfjordur and other east coast towns as well as breathtakingly beautiful fjords. Whale watching, picturesque Seydisfjordur, black sand beaches and Jokulsarlon Lagoon are among the delights in this locality. The southern leg of Highway 1 stays closer to the coast and gives convenient access to Hof, Vik and Vatnajokull National Park.
