Iceland is a stunning and unique destination that offers many opportunities for 4×4 touring and off-roading. The country is renowned for its rugged and diverse landscapes, which include glaciers, hot springs, geysers, waterfalls, and more.

A 4×4 tour of Iceland provides an excellent way to explore the country’s remote and beautiful locations that are not easily accessible by other means. Iceland is known for its rough and rugged terrain, making a 4×4 vehicle the perfect way to get around and see the sights.

Some popular destinations for 4×4 touring in Iceland include the Highlands, a remote and rugged region that is home to glaciers, geysers, and other natural wonders. The Golden Circle is a popular tourist route that takes in some of Iceland’s most famous attractions, including the Gullfoss waterfall, the Geysir hot springs, and the Thingvellir National Park.

Driving in Iceland is arduous, with rocky and volcanic ash tracks. We will encounter glacial melt rivers – they can be deep. A sealed raised air intake is essential, including sealed bungs in the base of the airbox. Differential breathers are strongly recommended. All vehicles must have a good quality all-terrain or mud-terrain tyre, including spare. Strong side walls are essential, and BFG tyres are ideal for this terrain.

We are going in August, when it might be relatively warm, but it can be cold, windy, wet, and even snowy. So, a sturdy tent is recommended, with four-season sleeping bags and extra fleece blankets. It’s better to be too hot than to shiver all night. Similarly, take plenty of warm clothing: base layers (useful at night), fleece and insulated jackets.

If your roof tent has a touring annexe to zip underneath, take it along. And if you’re choosing between a small ground tent and a large one that you can sit inside, go for the latter.

There are plenty of campsites around the country’s perimeter and a few inland. Most are fairly spartan, and some have limited facilities.

Alcohol is expensive and can only be bought from the Vinbudin off-licences. You might want to take some of your own stocks, although technically, this is limited to 3 litres of wine and 6 litres of beer. You can take up to 10kg of food, but not anything uncooked, including meat and dairy products.

Check whether your phone provider charges extra for using it in Iceland. If so, it might be cheaper to buy a local SIM.
