Our partners in lceland have designed 3 ideal programs to self drive in Iceland. We recommend you self-drive in Iceland only during the mild summer months, unless you feel very confident driving in snowy and icy road conditions. Our tailored programs are designed to enjoy between May – September. Please get in touch for pricing. Any changes to these recommendations are of course no problem, just contact us for a tailored offer!


Our recommendations are focusing on the South (7 days) and enjoying the full circle of Iceland (either 9 or 14 days)
