Holiday home packages include accommodation in privately owned houses. Bed linen, towels, heating and electricity is included. The houses are equipped with kitchen facilities, refrigerator, shower, toilet and living room/area. At the end of your stay you have to clean the house yourself.

We suggest visiting Mývatn in the North, bathing in the Blue Lagoon, seeing the colossal waterfall Gullfoss in the Southwest, as well as Jökulsárlón glacier in the Southeast. These are only suggestions – there is much more to explore.

With the one week programme you stay in two different houses, either in the North and the East or the South and the East.

With the two week programme you stay for 3 or 4 nights in each region: North, West, Southwest and Southeast.

Driving in Iceland

Driving in Iceland might be quite different from what you are used to. We recommend that you check where you will find descriptions of what you can expect and guidelines about how to handle different situations that might arise.


Highland driving with your motorcycle

It is important to have a waterproof and shock-proof luggage system, a good chain and new tires. Particularly in the interior, it is best to use tires with a coarse enduro profile. There are stories about people who finished off a set of tires in 1800 km, because the gravel is sharp and destructive. It is very useful to bring a tool to measure the air pressure in the tires, a repair kit for flat tires and an extra tank for fuel, particularly if you also cook on fuel. Take care with packing: lids can easily be shaken off boxes, if they are not fixed well.

All in all, if you to do some thorough work beforehand and bring a big and tough motorcycle, it can be a wonderful adventure.

It is possible to drive the highland routes such as Sprengisandur, Behind the Mountains and the track to Askja if you have a good 4x4 enduro motorcycle (not tour motorcycle) and if you are very careful. For tour motorcycles, we recommend staying on the main roads and not driving through the highland, with the possible exception of the Kjölur track.


Snow chains

We recommend bringing along snow chains during the period outside June, July and August.


Fixed routes

The routes in Iceland are fixed. In the event of fully booked accommodation during the high season (June, July and August), travellers may expect slight changes to the itineraries.

Iceland road map

When booking a package tour to Iceland we will send you an Iceland road map, when the trip has been fully paid.
