ABOUT DRIVING A MOTORHOME IN ICELAND
Driving on the ring road
Driving in Iceland is not difficult but does involve a certain level of challenge. The main road that goes around Iceland is known as the Ring Road (or Route 1) and is 1399 km long. The road connects the biggest towns and passes through some of the most interesting parts of the country. Most of the Ring Road is paved and it is two-way in most parts. The speed limit is 50 km per hour in urban areas and 90 km per hour on paved roads in rural areas. It takes about a week to drive around the entire Ring Road at a leisurely pace with many stops along the way.
Driving on gravel roads
From the Ring Road is minor roads lead to a great many interesting sights and small villages. The majority of these are gravel roads that require a little extra attention, but which are generally easy to use in a normal two-wheel drive. The speed limit is 80 km per hour.
Driving in the highlands and on F-roads
In order to drive on so-called F-roads, you will need a four-wheel drive with ground clearance. These gravel roads are often narrow and not made for fast driving. F-roads are designated with an F in front of the route number on signs and on maps. Most F-roads are closed until the end of June or later because of wet and muddy conditions which make them impassable.
Late arrivals to Iceland
The camper van rental window closes at 18:30 and so if you arrive after that time you will incur a fee of 200 euros for the late collection of your camper van.
