Iceland Self Drive Holidays

Explore incredible Iceland by car with our self drive holidays. Imagine cresting a rise in the road to be met with views of a mighty icecap. Or rounding a bend to discover a waterfall cascading over sheer cliffs. Empty roads and epic landscapes add up to the perfect road trip.

Iceland is Open

Iceland’s borders re-opened on 15 June having stood out from much of Europe with a proactive plan to keep the Covid-19 outbreak under control. The country has been extremely successful in managing to track and trace cases and is ready to welcome visitors back to its spectacular shores, a prospect that greatly excites us.

The current extraordinary circumstances mean that its not quite travel as normal yet. As such we have been working closely with our key partners in Iceland to create a collection of superb value itineraries, saving up to 30% and ranging from 3-14 nights that will allow our clients to explore the ‘land of fire and ice’ this summer both safely and enjoyably.

To further reassure our clients, our industry-leading Flexibility Promise allows you to cancel right up to the last minute if you are unable to travel due to Covid-19. Should you test positive in Iceland and need to self-quarantine, the Iceland government will cover the costs of your isolation centre accommodation and medical costs and Discover the World will refund all recoverable holiday costs and provide assistance and advice.

Summer Self Drive Holidays in Iceland

Freedom of the road

With 37 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.
