Driving Around Reykjavik

 

Reykjavik is the Capital of Iceland and the biggest city in the country. It has all of the major features you would expect in a large metropolitan city, which include maintained paved roads. In Iceland, people drive on the right side of the road and the speed fluctuates from 18 mph to 55 mph. Ring Road 1 is the major thoroughfare and follows the entire coast of Iceland. You can expect to drive on single lane paved roads through the city, which sometimes covert to gravel roads when you get to certain sections of the back country.

 

Rules of the Road in Iceland

 

Driving rules of Iceland are much like that of the United States. You can expect your rental car to be equipped with seatbelts that all occupants of your vehicle must wear while traveling. Talking on a cell phone or driving while under the influence of drugs and alcohol are prohibited in this country. If you plan to explore the back country, prepare to do some hiking as off-roading is illegal in Iceland.

 

Parking in Reykjavik

 

Reykjavik offers several parking lots and side street parking zones you can use for affordable prices. Before parking in the city, make sure you have some Icelandic coins with you as not all parking meters accept credit cards. Reykjavik is a small city and so you can get to where you are going quickly, even if you have to park outside of downtown.

 

Gas Stations in Reykjavik

 

Getting gas in the city is a breeze, but make sure you know how to pump it as many gas stations are self-service and require a credit card with a pin number. If you are looking to top off your tank before returning your rental car, there is a self-service station right near the Avis car rental company.

 

Things to do in Reykjavik

 

Iceland is a cold weather country with many fun things to see and do. If you are looking for an outdoor adventure, drive out to the Sólheimajökull and Mýrdalsjökull glaciers and experience the beauty of the natural landscape or reserve you spot on one of the many whale watching tours of the island. City dwellers will have an amazing time learning about history at the Museum of Iceland or Museum of Reykjavik. You can even go shopping, discover new tastes at local restaurants, or book a tour that is led by an expert guide.
