Just to say a huge thank you for organising our trip to Iceland. It was a fantastic holiday exceeding every expectation!
Sally Edmonston, Essential Iceland

With 35 years’ experience behind us, our self drive holidays have been carefully researched to show you the very best of Iceland’s amazing sights and experiences. Spend a few days touring the easily accessible highlights of the southwest. Roam the spectacular South Coast. Head out west. Plan a two-week driving odyssey around the Ring Road. Explore off the beaten track in a 4WD.

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.

Just wanted to say that we had a great time in Iceland.
