Best places to visit in Iceland

Best places to visit in Iceland

  • The Blue Lagoon: This is Iceland’s most famous attraction. Located just outside of Reykjavik, these geothermal pools are blue because of their rich mineral content. Soak in the baths and experience their natural healing powers for yourself.
  • Myrdalsjokull Glacier Park: Explore the ridges of the Katla caldera by taking a guided tour of this beautiful park. Covered in ice all year round, these hikes are for the most adventurous travelers. Be sure not to miss the Fimmvorduhals Pass and Eyjafjallajokull.
  • Reykjavik: The capital of Iceland is certainly worth a visit. With the beautiful surrounding landscape and the charming downtown, Reykjavik has a personality all its own. Head to the glass dome, Perlan, to see the Wonders of Iceland exhibit and get great city views.
Winter in Iceland

Winter in Iceland

As you can imagine, Iceland gets cold in the winter. However, this is also the best time to see the Northern Lights, so head north and keep your eyes peeled at night. You can also head to the glaciers to enjoy some skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling or snowshoeing. This is also the best time to head to the Blue Lagoon and soak in the warm healing waters.

I went to Iceland in December 2022 and wanted to explore the country with my friends, that’s why we needed a car. To rent a car at the Sixt rental station in Keflavik Airport turned out to be the right decision. We were advised about which car would be optimal for our plan and which insurance would fit us the best. Unlike many other experiences I made at car rental stations, they did not try to make the maximum profit and sell us every upgrade they could. The car itself was a 4x4 so it was a very good fit for the weather conditions in Iceland. It had no problems and the rent was very smooth. We returned the car a bit later than we agreed on, because a road was closed but that was no problem, Sixt was very fair and did not charge any extra fee. All in all, it was a good experience and I would fully recommend this rental station to anyone needing a car in Iceland.

I regularly rent cars via Sixt and never had any issues. Most recently I booked a 4x4 car in Iceland and everything was flawless. Pickup and return was quick, great customer service and support throughout the rental period. At the end also received a complementary ride to the terminal. Recommend! P.S. if you rent during winter ask for a snow shovel and a sandbag.

We rented a compact car for 10 days in Iceland. Upon arriving we were offered an upgrade to a Jeep Compass for an extremely reasonable rate, plus a second driver added. The individual working at the front desk (unfortunately I do not have his name) was professional, kind, answered our questions, and gave helpful tips about the area and driving around the country. The car was a hybrid but due to our route and lodging options we only charged it once, using petrol the rest of the time. The 4x4 capabilities were helpful during some of the ice passages and the car was comfortable to ride in. Our flight was canceled and we needed to extend the rental by one day, which was no problem. When we checked in the car Grzegorz assisted us and even shuttled us back to the airport. Exceptional service and we appreciated the kindness showed.
