Driving Tips

The road system in Iceland is easy to navigate and traffic is minimal outside of the main cities. Commonly referred to as Ring Road, Route 1 is the most traveled motorway around the country. It circumnavigates the island and connects most of its cities. While Route 1 is open throughout the year, there may be temporary closures due to weather conditions so inform yourself beforehand. There are no tolls in Iceland except for the Hvalfjord Tunnel, which cuts the distance from Reykjavík to the western and northern parts of the island.

Additional driving tips:

  • In general the speed limit is 50 km/h in urban areas, 90 km/h on highways.
  • Driving in Iceland is on the right-hand side of the road.
  • Drivers and passengers must wear seatbelts at all times.
  • Headlights are obligatory while driving both during the day and at night.
  • Talking on the phone without a hands-free system is prohibited.
