The ‘Land of Fire and Ice’ isn’t exactly known for its extensive transport links. Stretching 305 miles from east to west and 185 miles north to south, this stunning landscape offers a wealth of opportunities for adventure. Heading out on four wheels in a rumbling 4x4 is the ultimate way to tackle Iceland’s rugged terrain and is the most popular method of transport in Iceland; while setting sail around the coast allows for a different perspective of this tradition-filled island. From whale watching to being dwarfed by towering mountainsides in some of the country’s largest fjords, half of Iceland’s fun is the journey. So, pack your bags, book a plane ticket and hop aboard for a bucket-list topping Icelandic adventure.

By Train

Iceland does not have a railway system for passenger trains as the country's rugged terrain and sparse population make it difficult to economically justify the construction of a railway network.

By Car

Driving in Iceland is like embarking on a journey to a whole new world. With each turn of the wheel, you'll be transported through stunning natural beauty and raw, untamed wilderness. Exploring on four wheels is the most popular method of transport in Iceland. Cruise along the country's roads as they wind their way through glaciers, past thundering waterfalls and across black sand deserts, offering up a never-ending feast for the eyes.

But make no mistake, driving in Iceland is no ordinary road trip. With its rugged terrain, unpredictable weather conditions, and limited street lighting in rural areas, it can be a challenging experience. With a little bit of preparation and respect for the road, you'll be rewarded with an adventure unlike any other. In some parts of the country, such as the F-roads, you'll need a sturdy four-wheel drive vehicle to conquer the rough and unpaved roads, and of course, the roads are more accessible during the summer due to better weather conditions.

By Boat

Dipping your oars in and exploring Iceland by boat is an incredible way to experience the country's breath-taking beauty and unique landscapes. With its towering cliffs and countless fjords, Iceland's waterways offer a new perspective on this breathtakingly beautiful country. Although you can’t travel through the country, Iceland’s coastlines, fjords and glacier lagoons offer an unmatched perspective of this ice-covered island.

Embark on a journey through the country's fjords and you'll feel like you've stepped into a fairy-tale. Exploring by boat is one of the most magical types of transport in Iceland. The narrow waterways are framed by towering cliffs and dotted with quaint fishing villages, giving water-borne explorers the chance to see authentic coastal Iceland. Get ready to be captivated by Iceland's rich cultural heritage as you glide along these serene waters. Or, if you're looking for a truly unique experience, consider taking a boat tour of the iconic glacier lagoons, such as Jökulsárlón. Here, you'll get to see the massive glaciers up close and you may even spot some of the seals that call these waters home.

For a chance to get up close and personal with some of the planet's most magnificent creatures, venture out into the island’s surrounding icy waters on a whale watching adventure. These gentle giants call Iceland's waters home and a boat tour will bring you face to face with their beauty. Keep your eyes peeled, you never know when a humpback whale will break the surface, sending a mist of spray into the air.
