The Golden Circle is a hugely popular tourist route. You can visit the stunning Pingvellir National Park, Kerio Volcanic Crater, and many different geysers. Sites are well marked and fairly close to each other. Setting aside a couple of days to visit this area is highly recommended for all first time visitors to Iceland.

Icelandic Ring Road

Many modern cities have beltways around their capital cities. However, the Ring Road is a bit different since it circles most of the island and connects with smaller interior roadways. It’s a perfect way to get around Iceland and maximize your trip.

Traveling by Car in Iceland

What a pleasure it is to drive through Iceland. No traffic. Great scenery. And most of all, the intense sensation that you have abandoned your mundane day-to-day life for positive and life changing exploits. Even if you decide to stay in Reykjavik some days to get to know the culture, food and lifestyle--you won’t have any problem getting around in a car. It’s the main city but it feels like a small and well run town.

Driving around Iceland is very simple. There is a beltway circling most of the coast called the ring road. The roads are smooth and a delight to drive on since there are very few cars you can enjoy your road trip in peace. In Iceland traffic heads on the right side so be aware of this just in case you are arriving from a country that drives on the left.

Off the Ring Road you will see signs indicating there are smaller interior roadways leading to stunning landmarks and natural wonders. Some are small gravel roads. Feel free to carefully get lost within these roads. Most of these off-roads take you to spectacular sites such as the Fjords or waterfall areas. Just make sure to turn on your GPS and watch for marked signs as there are wildlife crossings on these inland roads. The speed limit in Iceland within Reykjavik and towns is 50 km/h. You can go 80 km/h on local roads and up to 90 km/h on the smooth Ring Road.

Many of the famous and renowned Icelandic attractions can only be reached by traveling on gravel roads. If you decide that you’d like to go a little more off the Ring Road during your trip, it’s advised that you hire a 4x4 vehicle or SUV. Remember, off road driving in unmarked areas is illegal and can damage local land and flora. Stick to well marked paths and roadways, since they also lead to the best sites and destinations. You may want to purchase additional liability insurance for your rental if you decide to travel on these gravel roads as pieces of flying rocks may damage the vehicle. Paying a little more will give you peace of mind in the end.
