Iceland Fly Drive Holidays

Iceland is an incredible country to explore by car. Imagine cresting a rise in the road to be met with views of a mighty icecap. Or rounding a bend to discover a waterfall cascading over sheer cliffs. Empty roads and epic landscapes add up to the perfect road trip.

Planning your flexible self-drive holiday

We'll also advise you on the most suitable vehicle for your trip, the best time of year to travel and the appropriate level of insurance.

Prime time for Iceland fly-drives is June-August, but availability goes fast during this peak season, so start planning now! Don't forget that May and September are also perfect months for hitting the road. May has long hours of daylight, wildflowers and bustling seabird colonies. In September, the Highland tracks of the interior are usually still open and you can enjoy breathtaking autumn colours and maybe even the northern lights. We also have winter options for self-drive holidays.


Driving in Iceland in the Winter
This trip was without exception, outstanding and this was in part due to the excellence of our guide. He was exceedingly knowledgeable and conveyed to us both cultural information and a deep understaning of the land. His stories and anecdotes enlivened our tour and gave us a clear insight into Iceland and its people.
