5 Day Taste of Iceland

5 Day Taste of Iceland - Self drive suggestion

Travelling through some of the Earth’s most dramatic and spectacular scenes is quite an experience. Our Taste of Iceland package lets you sample many of the country’s best attractions, giving you the chance to explore the city before heading off to take in some of the natural beauties of the land. With waterfalls, clean healthy air and fascinating history, you can be sure of a pleasant and intriguing break. All you need to do is hire a car and take to the road, driving from Reykjavik – and back to Reykjavik – with some amazing stop-offs on your four-day journey!

In a private car, you don’t need to worry about restrictions or schedules. We’ve made a number of recommendations regarding the best places to check out but the choice is entirely yours. So why not enjoy the freedom of discovering Iceland for yourself? Adding convenience to your holiday, this Self-Drive option ensures you can get the very best out of each day and look forward to a comfortable stay at a different hotel each night.
