    Do I need a 4x4 rental car in Iceland?

    All the rental cars we provide in our luxury self drive tours are 4×4 since this is the safest and most comfortable choice for travelling in Iceland.

    How are the Weather Conditions?

    The weather in Iceland can change very quickly so it’s important for your to stay up to date on the weather conditions, especially during the winter months. Weather conditions can be checked out on the Icelandic Meteorological Office website, which is the most accurate weather forecast available. The website’s different maps display temperature, wind speed, precipitation, and even avalanche forecasts. When driving in Iceland a pair of good sunglasses are a must!

    How long does it take to drive around Iceland?

    The Ring Road or Route 1 goes all the way around Iceland, about 1332 KM and it would take you between 12-14 hours without any stops.. We don’t recommend that! For you to be able to enjoy and experience the stops and places along the way we would recommend taking 6 – 10 days to go all the way around Iceland.

    International Driving License?

    To drive in Iceland you do not need an international driver’s license unless your domestic license may be hard to understand in Iceland. If your license is written in simplified Chinese, Arabic or any other non-roman alphabet, then you will need to procure either an English version or an International license.

    Is it difficult to drive in Iceland?

    All the major roadways including the Ring Road are paved and accessible all year around. Make sure you only drive on paved roads, that way you shouldn’t have any problems.

    What are the laws & regulations?

    The standard speed limits in Iceland are:

    • 30-50 km/hour within cities and other populated areas
    • 80 km/hour on gravel roads in rural areas
    • 90 km/hour on paved roads.

    In Iceland the cars are driven on the right side of the road and like in most European countries. You should never drink and drive and make sure you always have your seat belts on. If you need to use the cell phone during driving make sure it’s connected to a hands-free device. The main headlights must be kept on at all times, even during daylight hours. Off-road driving is strictly forbidden as it destroys the environment and natural landscape and can result in a fine up to 5,000 USD. Never park or drive in the middle of the road, always find a safe parking spot or area if you need to stop to enjoy the Icelandic Landscape or Northern Lights.

    What is a Self Drive Tour?

    You have your own rental car that gives you the freedom to travel when and where you like, we do all the planning and booking for your stay in Iceland so you don’t have to do any research and can enjoy a stress-free journey in Iceland. Our self drive tours are ideal for people who like to travel at their own pace and still experience luxury and comfort.

    Magical Family Trip to Iceland

    Arlene, 2022

    My family and I just returned from a magical trip of a lifetime, exploring Iceland with Ingi, our amazing guide from Deluxe Iceland. From the moment we landed until we departed, Ingi took such thoughtful care of every detail. We spent ten days, with adventures that included fly fishing (we caught Arctic Char), boating among ice bergs in a glacial lagoon, hiking volcano crater rims, exploring waterfalls, puffin cliffs on the Westman Islands and bathing in geothermal pools. And every day we enjoyed amazing food, and beautiful hotels. Deluxe Iceland arranged an excellent itinerary and Ingi made sure our every need was taken care of. His knowledge of all things Icelandic made the trip a very rich experience.He even did advance research into my family's ancestral home in Isafjordur prior to our arrival and was able to take us directly to my great grandparents home, from which my family emigrated to Canada in 1898! Ingi's enthusiasm for our itinerary made it so much fun. Deluxe Iceland created a once in a lifetime magical trip for our family--one that we will be talking about for years to... Read more

    Stunning Iceland

    Janine S, 2022

    We returned home today from one of the most magical vacations we have ever experienced. We were a group of 5 friends on a 10 day trip around the country and our amazing guide Jonas treated us like royalty. A more kinder, considerate and gentle man I have yet to meet. Jonas patiently took care of our every need - even as plans changed and changed back again. He was always super attentive and accommodating. He showed us the crazy stunning beauty of Iceland in tons of magical hidden secret places. Truth be told, I believe that Jonas is the hidden secret of Deluxe Iceland!!! When you book your vacation with them be sure to ask for... Read more

    Trip of a lifetime!

    Lindsay C, 2022

    This was truly a once in a lifetime experience to a place none of us had ever been, made possible by Deluxe Iceland! Our tour guide, Jonas, in particular, made the trip extremely special. He took great care in making sure that all 11 members of our party, ranging in age from 2-77 years old, were happy, comfortable, and engaged in a wide range of activities. We were blown away by all the hidden treasures the island has to offer. We enjoyed breathtaking hikes to waterfalls, canyons, capes, caves, cliffs, volcanos, glaciers, and geothermal bathing, and were able to experience the local people and culture first hand at a local dairy farm and an extended stay at a private home in the countryside. If you want a first class trip where every detail is taken care of for you and meticulously planned out, Deluxe Iceland will take amazing care of... Read more

    TRIP OF A LIFETIME

    Christian - June 2022

    I trusted Deluxe Iceland to plan the trip of a lifetime for 10 friends of ours. Most who had never been to Iceland. Not knowing what to expect every single step of the way we were BLOWN away, by the attentiveness and attention to detail Deluxe Iceland executed. Each activity we had planned was elevated beyond our wildest beliefs. From our favourite drinks and food, to local traditions the team at Deluxe made us feel like the lead characters in a larger than life movie. I wish every country we visited had a Deluxe group of people. We WILL be back, and we will be sending people their way to truly have a mind blowing experience. Bravo. Above and truly... Read more

    The absolute BEST Iceland experience!

    ShriyaP - June 10, 2022

    My family (parents and two children in early 30s) had a once in a lifetime experience in iceland with Deluxe Iceland, and with Sig as our guide. We spent 7 days traveling through the capital and several other remote locations via various types of transportation, and could not have had a more incredible time. The service was unmatched, with everything immaculately planned. We were able to experience one of the world's most naturally gifted countries via extremely professional service (Sig!). In addition, Deluxe Iceland has the best connections with the top restaurants in the country - we were able to get reservations last minute or drive to the best bakeries upon learning about them from friends / social media. If you are looking for unapparelled service and the best way to experience Iceland, you will NOT regret choosing Deluxe Iceland and ask for Sig as your... Read more
