Discover Car Hire in Iceland
Located between Europe and North America, Iceland is a truly remarkable country. Isolated from the rest of the world, and largely undeveloped, Iceland has retained amazing natural areas, while still managing to keep up with modern times.
With a deep sense of culture and a language being very similar to that of the Vikings, yet also featuring impressive architecture and technology, Iceland has the best of both worlds, and offers visitors a down to earth alternative to other touristy destinations in Europe.
The capital city of Iceland, and also where most people will begin their visit, is Reykjavik, located on the west coast of the island. If you are flying into Reykjavik, simply collect your hire car upon arrival, and be off to see the sights!
While in Reykjavik, there are a number of great attractions to visit, including the historic Old Town, the Perlan, and the National Museum of Iceland. One attraction you won’t be able to miss is Hallgrimskirkja, a huge church which towers over the city.
With most of the population in Iceland living in or around Reykjavik, you will find vast areas of unspoilt natural beauty virtually wherever you go!
Drive your hire car to the Southwest of the city, where you can visit the Blue Lagoon, famous for it’s healing properties and vivid blue colour, or head south east and check out Vatnajokull Glacier, the largest glacier in Europe!
Much of the life in Iceland revolves around the harbour and seas, so it’s no surprise to find a lot of great things to do on the water. Park your hire car near the harbour, and take your pick from a number of great outings, whether it be whale watching, island hopping, or deep sea fishing. The options seem endless, and you’re visit can be as action packed or as laid back as you decide!
