Iceland Transport Guide

You can tour Iceland’s awesome landscape on horse, bike, motorbike or Segway. But if you’re not so adventurous, you can still rely on ferries or public buses – some of which are free!

How to get around Iceland

Cars are the most common way to get around Iceland. And why wouldn’t you want to hire a car to explore the dramatic landscapes like the Golden Circle at your own pace? You’ll find car hire agencies in most major towns and cities. Just make sure you drive cautiously, particularly in winter. Iceland doesn’t have any train services, but it does have great bus services that’ll take you all over the country. Passenger ferries also operate around Iceland to connect travellers to islands and sail across the Breiðafjörður for access to the western fjords. There are also some domestic air services that fly daily from Reykjavik to other major destinations in Iceland. More and more, visitors are choosing to cycle as their main transport method and it’s a great way to take in the beautiful natural surrounds. For something different, why not do a Reykjavik Segway tour to explore the capital?
