Highlights of Iceland

The route goes all around Iceland, mainly following the circle route, thus visiting many of the most spectacular sites of Iceland: the most of Iceland in the shortest time possible

Get to know the most of Iceland in a relatively short time. Visit all the most important sites, including the famous waterfalls Gullfoss and Dettifoss. You will be staying at hotels, farms or guesthouses including breakfast ashore and on board.

Enjoy this magnificent road trip around Iceland, where 95 per cent of the roads are paved and accessible by ordinary family car or motorcycle. We have tailored special itineraries lasting one or two-weeks, to make sure that you experience most of Iceland’s spectacular sights: breathtaking scenery, cliffs, waterfalls, lava landscapes, as well as charming, picturesque villages. Finally, don’t forget that there is no better end to an eventful day than bathing in one of the many thermal springs.
