Adventure Awaits in a 4x4 Off-Road Vehicle

Iceland is your ultimate destination for adventure. From hiking to whale watching, ice climbing to caving, exciting experiences are waiting on this island country of fire and ice. Build your adventure plan around a 4x4 car rental in Reykjavik, where you can rent a sturdy, fully equipped 4x4 vehicle.

There is no better way to see the unique features and landscapes of Iceland than in an off-road 4x4 vehicle. Iceland is one of the most geologically active places on the planet. With a 4WD rental in Iceland, our vehicles will help you get closer to the heart-stirring volcanos and bubbling hot springs that define the land.

Why Choose 4x4?

A 4x4 vehicle hire is necessary if you want to truly explore Iceland. Not only is it unsafe to drive in the highlands with a normal rental car, you could be fined. Driving in a 4x4 camper or truck affords the opportunity to be adventurous in rugged terrain and wintry weather.

Highland roads in the interior are known as F roads. Each one is designated by a number—for example, F 232. These are gravel roads with potholes and sometimes rivers that cut right through them. Maintenance is rare on these types of roads. You’ll need a four-wheel-drive vehicle to traverse them safely.
