Why Rent a Car in Iceland?
Rent a Car & Be in Awe of Iceland
Iceland is a remote paradise where hidden gems are just around the corner, with wonders such as stunning waterfalls, powerful geysers, breathtaking black sand beaches and magical icy wonderlands.
Traveling Iceland by a car rental is considered the best way to enjoy Iceland and its magnificent scenery. Whether you are on a family vacation, traveling for leisure and/or adventure, or just heading to a meeting you are going to need a set of rented wheels.
Northern Lights are also in high demand during winter time and are not known to follow itineraries. With a rental car you can chase the absolute perfect weather conditions for that breathtaking Aurora Borealis sighting.
With a 4x4 car rental you can take advantage of the marked F-Roads that lead to “out this world” like environment which is perfect for those seeking the ultimate Icelandic experience.
Lets not forget that when you rent a Campervan you can combine accommodation with transportation and experience Iceland's beautiful scenery at your own pace.
Rent a Car & Be in Charge
Most of our visitors don’t have the luxury of time so the added freedom and flexibility to roam around the island in your rental car, on your own accord, is priceless. The feeling of driving and escaping the regular routes and finding that magical “bucket list” spot gives you that feeling of overwhelming wonder. We know that as soon as you walk from the aircraft into Keflavik International Airport and drive into the Icelandic wilderness, you won't be disappointed.
Iceland has so much to offer and it can be challenging to pinpoint exactly where and when to visit each place as weather can heavily influence plans. Traveling in a rental car allows you to change your plans on the day and seek an adventure elsewhere.
You can choose the correct vehicle type for your journey and be in charge of the cost. Renting a car is more affordable than traveling by public transportation, especially when you book your rental car in advance. We pride ourselves on having the lowest Iceland Rental Car prices and we make sure to match the price you find elsewhere.
Check out our Car Rental Tips: Pick-up, Driving and Returns so that you can be ready to take charge of your own rental process.
Rent a Car & Be In Total Comfort
We all know that feeling of just going for a drive with not a care in the world. You have all your belongings at your fingertips, your best friends or spouse riding next to you and you are now only thinking about the next destination knowing that something incredible is waiting to be discovered.
Hiring a car also allows you to take charge of the pace and be as comfortable as you like. Traveling by bus or a public transport with strangers limits the amount of time spent exploring due to the strict itineraries of travel agencies. Also, if the weather cancels your trip North, then just head South on your own rented vehicle.
Traveling Iceland in a rental car also allows for more secluded sightings and exploring as the itinerary is all completely in the power of the driver's adventurous feeling. Car rental benefits also include; singing loudly with the radio on high, fixing the seat to your liking and shouting out loud when you see that bucket list view through the window!
That’s the comfort of renting a car in Iceland.
Rent a Car & Be on Vacation
When you step into that car rental in Iceland it instantly promotes the feeling of vacation as now you know the journey is about to begin. Transportation is a large part of being on vacation and when you have your own car you don’t have to worry about waiting for a taxi, standing in line at the bus station and putting your trust in on-time public transportation. Just as you don’t have to spend time working, putting clothes in the washer or cutting the grass. You truly are on vacation.
Being on vacation also means independence. You are now away from your usual life and you want to have an extraordinary time. Sitting comfortably in your own rental car, putting the foot on the pedal while driving through some of the most unusual and mystifying landscapes is a feeling unlike any other. In Iceland you can feel like the only person in the world to have ever visited and that is truly how a vacation should feel like.
Your car rental can also be the vehicle you have always wanted to own. You can rent a sweet sports car, a Tesla, or a large SUV / 4x4 that can overcome any obstacle. Drive the famous F-Roads, over rivers and along mountain ridges or just take the paved highway on a sweet ride that makes sure you forget your day to day routine.
Rent a Car & Be Adventurous
With the perfect rental car and that adventurous mindset, you can easily quench your thirst for adventure.
When traveling to Iceland you have the opportunity to go;
• Glacier Hiking,
• Diving and Snorkeling
• Whale Watching
• Mountain biking
• Visit Volcanoes
• Ride an ATV ( All-Terrain Vehicle )
• White Water Rafting
• Horseback Riding
• Ice Cave Exploration and more…
That list alone should excite any adventure enthusiasts.
To be able to seek out the absolute best, iconic and mind boggling adventures then you need the best rental car for the job. Northbound provides you with any type of vehicle that can go the distance so you won’t miss out any of the bragging rights. Renting a 4x4 Campervan brings you closer to the adventure as you are now able to both drive on otherwise forbidden routes as well as park your accommodation nearby.
