ICELAND 4x4 GUIDED GROUP SELF DRIVE ADVENTURE - 14 DAYS
ICELAND 14 DAYS
GUIDED SELF DRIVE ADVENTURE - 14 DAYS
Iceland, the land of fire, ice and northern lights, can you think of a better way to see it than by 4x4 along the remote tracks forged by Vikings? This adventure takes in the “must see” sights and then using our Arctic modified HiLux 4x4s we access the remote and wild central highlands of the country. You will see parts of Iceland rarely seen by others—this is not the usual tourist route on the tar ring road around the Iceland. This adventure is timed so that there is a good chance of catching the northern lights whilst having enough daylight to explore Iceland during the day. During the adventure we stay in mountain huts, comfortable hotels, guest houses and hostals.
Northern Lights can be visible in Iceland from mid-August throughout winter. Staying in very remote areas, such as the highlands, gives optimal chances of seeing the lights. These areas offer complete darkness. Light pollution is one of the main factors of Northern Lights sightings. Other factors that impact sighting chances the most are solar storm activity and cloud coverage. Northern lights are a natural phenomenon and sightings cannot be guaranteed.

Airfares; arrival/departure transfers; fuel; meals or beverages other than stated in the above inclusions; shower fees in huts; optional tours and activities (e.g. into the glacier tour on day 13 ISK17,688 per person); travel insurance (highly recommended); visas (if required); vaccinations (if required); vehicle excess; local tips; any fees or taxes that may be implemented by landowners, the government, service providers etc; any service not specifically listed under "included".
Why isn’t fuel included in the price? Because exchange rates can fluctuate a lot, the least expensive way to pay for the fuel is for you to pay this directly to the car hire company six weeks before the tour starts. That way no currency changes or fuel price fluctuations affect the price. The fuel cost is ISK174,240 per car – the car hire company will send us a payment link via email which we will forward to you to pay on your credit card when due. This payment will go direct to the car hire company not via Self Drive Adventures.
More about vehicle insurance: There is a EUR3,000 self-risk insurance that comes with the truck. The insurance is a collision-waiver and if there is a collision, the customer would have to pay a maximum of EUR3,000. However, this is only in case of a collision. There is no insurance for the body of the trucks, undercarriage, tyres or any damages that happen when driving off legitimate roads (we will stay on approved tracks and roads). The full contract will be provided on booking.
