24 Hour Breakdown Assistance
Never worry about running into trouble on the road. All of our rental cars come with a 24 hour emergency number you can contact in case you run into trouble while traveling around Iceland.
A true journey around Iceland means driving long stretches of the open road, which is why all of our rental cars come with unlimited mileage included. Take your 4x4 around on an adventure unlike any other.

Whether you're accustomed to driving a stick or your automatic car doing the shifting for you, you'll find the right car in our massive selection of rental cars with both transmission types freely available.
Fast & Secure Online Booking
The entire booking process has been built and designed around ease and simplicity. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to book through us, it just takes a few good clicks. Let's keep things simple.
All of these and many more...
It's difficult to rely on signs and markers in the vast Icelandic landscape. Equip your rental car with a GPS to help you navigate on your Iceland journey.
Stay connected wherever you are with a on-board WiFi connection. Add a wifi dongle to your rental car and keep communications up on the road.
Camping chairs, tables, tents, sleeping bags, coolers and even BBQ grills can be added to certain rental cars. Perfect for those times you feel like dropping in on a campsite to experience camping in Icelandic nature.
Your safety and the safety of the little passengers you might be traveling through Iceland with is the ultimate priority. Have your rental car delivered with child safety seats in your child's weight category and drive safe.
Some travel light but others might come to Iceland with their entire life in their suitcases. Add a roof box to your rental car and put aside any worries of space.
It is both practical and safer to have more than one driver. Exchange the burden of driving and add a extra insured driver to your rental car booking.
What our customers have to say...
We went spontaneously for a week on a camping trip to Iceland and as we were super late with booking a rental car we chose northbound. Best decision, everything went perfect. Fast, easy and friendly. Perfect experience!
I had a really great experience. I especially enjoyed how someone met me at the airport and walked me straight to the rental car in the parking lot. Quick paperwork and I was already driving. Returning the car was just as easy. I would definitely rent from this place again!
Thank you. Everything was perfect. Your equip was very helpfull...we enjoyed our stay in Iceland.
The little Jimny was the perfect companion for what we wanted to do. Small 4x4, reliable and easy to drive. The booking process was great. Picking up and returning the car was made super easy.
The car work well for us, we could do everything we had planned perfect! We highly recommend renting a 4x4 to travel around Iceland and for sure we would recommend your company. Thanks for the experience.
Amazing! So easy. They didn't push the extra insurance as much as I thought they would, which was refreshing. When we returned the car, they gave it a quick once over and that was that. Super easy. No hidden extra charges. Also very reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend this rental agency.
Great, quick and easy service on collection and drop off. Nice cars and great price. I will use again for sure.

Highlands of Iceland
Traveling Mountain Roads & F-Roads
Away from the crowded scenes of the more traversed tourist attractions in Iceland, up in the highlands, waits the ultimate adventure. The highlands hide away many of Iceland's natural jewels like the geothermal fields of Kerlingafjöll, the moss-covered lava fields of Eldhraun, the natural hot springs of Landmannalaugar and many more.
The F206 involves some river crossing and is best suited for medium and large 4x4 vehicles. The road leads to the Lakagíga area, a photographic paradise of a historic cataclysm that occurred when the Laki volcano erupted in 1783, spewing ash over much of Europe.
Fjallabaksleið North F208
The northern part of this mountain road is considered very rough and is best suited only for the largest types of 4x4 vehicles. For those that do manage it, the scenery is one of the most impressive in all of Iceland.
Fjallabaksleið South F210
Incredible photographic opportunities await those that travel the F210, but a large 4x4 and considerable experience is recommended before undertaking this tricky journey, as the road has a number of difficult fords to cross.
In the shadow of the great volcano, Hekla, runs F225, better known as Landmannaleið. The way is rough, with a few rivers to cross, but leads directly into the Landmannalaugar area. During summer, a large 4x4 is recommended. During winter, a guided tour is recommended.
Hunt for the unicorn and dramatically green landscapes on this mythical route through the south. The route offers truly picturesque landscapes, canyons and the unique mountain “Einhyrningur”. The F261 has some deep, rocky fords and should not be attempted in anything other than a large 4x4.
Considered one of the easiest highland roads to traverse, Kaldidalsvegur is perfect for those without F-road experience as the road has no unbridged rivers needed to cross and can be safely driven in small 4x4's.
Do I need a 4x4 car in Iceland?
The need depends on your intentions. Do you plan on driving merely to the basic tourist attractions, easily accessed from the ring road, or do you wish to head into the highlands to test your mettle against the many F-roads Iceland has to offer? A 4x4 is the optimal choice for highland adventure and the safer choice during winter.
Can I drive any F-road in my 4x4 rental car?
In most cases, yes. But, bare in mind that the rental car is never insured for the undercarriage or for water damages, so exercise caution at all times and take no unnecessary risks.
Can I cross rivers in my 4x4?
Yes, you can, as long as you do not damage the car. If you are unsure about the depth of a river, wade in first. If you cannot safely wade across, then you cannot drive the car across without damaging it. And remember, there is safety in numbers, so perhaps wait for another car before going in.
Can I drive my 4x4 offroad?
No. Offroad driving is illegal in Iceland and result in a very steep fine, issued by the police.
Are there any hidden fees or extra charges waiting for me when I arrive?
Never. The price you see when you book the car is the actual price for the car. The only way the price may go up is if you add insurances, extras or additional days to your booking.
Can I book the 4x4 rental car for someone else?
Yes, as long as they are qualified for the rental.
Can I cancel my booking free of charge?
Yes. We realize plans can change, which is why you can cancel your booking for a full refund if you cancel at least 48 hours before your arrival time.
