Good planning is half the battle. The easiest way to travel in the land of elves and trolls is by rental car from Reykjavík Airport. If you want to explore Iceland on your own, you should pack the appropriate equipment. If you still want to travel comfortably, even if you have a lot of luggage with you, you should rent a minivan or SUV for this purpose. These rental cars have plenty of interior space and storage space in the boot. There is a wide range of rental cars available in Iceland. Are you considering leaving the paved roads? In this case we recommend an off-road vehicle. With all-wheel drive and suitable equipment you won't get stuck in the snow, especially in the winter months, even in the highlands. If you want to drive along the coast in the summer on the ring road, you can also book a small car as a rental car.
