Do I need a 4x4 car rental in Iceland?

With the unpredictable weather, harsh seasons, and tough roads a 4x4 rental car is without a doubt the safer choice when traveling in Iceland in a rental car.

Over 13.000km of roads and less than 5000km covered with asphalt, you'll want a sturdy 4x4 rental car Iceland to lead you through the bumpy gravel roads and steep hills of Iceland

While regular rental cars in Iceland are allowed on all of them (except F-roads), there are plenty of roads that are not serviced regularly and shouldn‘t be attempted with a regular vehicle. With a 4x4 rental car, you‘re pretty well geared for most roads in Iceland.

4x4 rental car allows you to explore so much more than it would be driving a 2WD, getting to isolated regions like the Westfjords and the northeast. 4x4 cars are perfect for getting off the beaten track and exploring undiscovered regions.

All caution needs to be taken even when driving a 4x4 car in Iceland.
