It is a unique experience to visit Iceland’s remote highland areas that are accessible only with a 4x4 rental vehicle. However, it does require a skilled driver with knowledge about how to cross un-bridged rivers and drive on very rough roads. This is especially true for the optional detour to Lakagígar.
Please keep in mind that conditions in the highlands can change quickly due to rain and snow, and it is possible that roads may be closed and rivers can become too deep to cross. Therefore, all travellers MUST check road conditions before each leg of the journey and assess whether the route is passable. Please note that rental car insurance does NOT cover water damage to vehicles, so when crossing rivers you need to be sure how to cross it or wait for the next car to assist you through the water.
All bookings are charged in Icelandic Króna (ISK), the official currency of Iceland. Prices displayed in other currencies are indicative only and based on the daily exchange rate as issued by the Central bank of Iceland. Therefore, conversions from ISK to other currencies will fluctuate from day to day.
