    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.

    Deluxe Iceland with Deluxe Iceland

    Tom T, January 2023

    My wife wanted to go to Iceland with friends and family for a special occasion due in part to the wonderful trip organized by Deluxe Iceland in 2019. I called on them again, but this trip was larger with 20 people coming in from several countries. Sig, Viktor and their excellent staff pulled it all together without a glitch. They are knowledgeable and professional with on the ground white glove service. The real asset in this outfit is the team. These people genuinely care about their country and their special guests who visit. In a few days, we visited the Spa at the Retreat, visited waterfalls, local restaurants, glacier walked, and bathed in the northern lights from the hot tubs at the Hotel Ranga. I think they will get more business from our guests, who want to return to this magical... Read more

    Our Best Family Vacation

    Brian M, December 2022

    Deluxe Iceland organized an incredible vacation for our family. Our bespoke itinerary was tailored to us. A food tour, snowmobiling, ATVs, a lava tunnel and even the Northern Lights. Incredible!Critical to the experience are the guides and they are second-to-none. David was our main guide and he was knowledgeable and fun. During our activities, David would shoot video and pics and it was great to see our family in action. Bjartur and Paul were also wonderful, all three guides prepped us for the elements.I give Deluxe Iceland my highest... Read more

    Incredible company and guide!

    LeAnne, November 2022

    We schedule a week visit to Iceland at the end of Sept for the week of Thanksgiving through Victor at Deluxe Iceland. They gave our family of 5 (ages 13, 15, and 18) what we all consider the best vacation we have ever had and we have Deluxe Iceland to thank! They tailored the entire trip to the type of activities our family enjoys while still managing for us to cover all of the highlights of Iceland at this time of the year. They also managed to do this within 6 weeks of visiting. Jonas was our private guide and driver the entire time. All 5 of us absolutely adored him and he added a number of things that made our trip special. He has the perfect balance of knowing how involved to be and when it is time to chill or have family time. We were able to see the Northern Lights our second night in Iceland and Jonas took the time to make sure we had all the family pictures we needed to create our Christmas card and then had hot chocolate brewing in the back of the car to our surprise. When it was too windy one day to snow mobile, he suggested we go on ATVs and it was definitely the most favorite thing for our boys. Every day was something new, wonderful and private. The restaurants were equally amazing and varied and Jonas managed to find places with the best fries- which was what was most important to my daughter. The country and people in Iceland are absolutely amazing. I want to go back in the summer and experience new things. Highlights of our trip were: ice caving, seeing... Read more

    Amazing experience

    Rhea D, December 2022

    Deluxe Iceland was an amazing experience. Planning our itinerary with Viktor was a breeze. We didn’t have to think about anything once we decided on our trip. Our guide, Unnar, was so fun and knowledgeable. He kept us safe, got us everywhere we wanted to go, and was very flexible if we wanted to stop and check something out. The first trip where I could truly relax and enjoy the experience! Thank... Read more
