Here's some information to consider when driving in Iceland and choosing a suitable vehicle:
Roads: Iceland's road network includes well-maintained highways as well as unpaved gravel roads, particularly in rural areas. The main routes connecting Keflavik Airport to Reykjavik and other major towns are usually in good condition, but you may encounter gravel roads when exploring more remote regions.
Weather: Iceland's weather can be unpredictable, with frequent changes in conditions. Be prepared for rain, snow, and strong winds, especially in the winter. Road conditions can vary depending on the time of year.
The type of vehicle you choose to hire depends on your travel plans:
4WD/All-Wheel Drive: If you plan to explore Iceland's more remote and rugged areas, such as the highlands or the interior, a 4WD or all-wheel-drive vehicle can be a wise choice. These vehicles offer better traction on gravel roads and in challenging weather conditions. They're also suitable for river crossings.
Compact Car: For driving in and around Reykjavik and on the main routes to popular tourist destinations, a compact car may be sufficient. It's a good choice if you're staying within the city or sticking to well-paved roads.
Drive cautiously and obey speed limits, especially on gravel roads.
Be prepared for changing weather conditions and sudden changes in visibility.
Check road conditions and weather forecasts before setting out on longer journeys, as conditions can change rapidly.
Be aware that some roads in the interior of Iceland may be closed during the winter due to extreme weather conditions.
Fill up your fuel tank regularly, as gas stations can be scarce in some areas.
