If you enjoy exploring independently then Iceland makes an ideal fly drive destination – it remains by far our most popular way to discover the real Iceland. Flexible itineraries, uncluttered and easy to navigate roads and magnificent scenery, make driving in Iceland a thoroughly enjoyable way to explore.
If you want the freedom to stop where you fancy en route – be it to take a short hike, to browse around a little museum, photograph a waterfall or stretch your legs and simply enjoy the landscape – a self drive holiday is ideal.

Eyjafjallajokull Visitors Centre is an ideal roadside stop in south Iceland. It was amazing to meet people directly affected by the 2010 eruption and hear their experiences. It's a brilliant little museum where I learnt so much.
