Highland Driving

The rule of thumb for the Icelandic highlands at wintertime is simple: They are closed!

With that said, we can also say that driving in the Icelandic highlands is very popular at wintertime, both off and on glaciers. To be able to do that you need a super jeep and a very experienced and skilled driver who’s used to the conditions in Iceland in winter.

Organized tours usually result in better experience as well as a safe and enjoyable trip.
