Here you can read all about safe traveling
in a car in Iceland
The general speed limit in Iceland is 50 km/h in urban areas, 80 km/h on gravel roads and 90 km/h on paved roads outside urban areas.
Please drive extra carefully on gravel roads as they can easily cause you to lose grip or get a flat tire! Many roads outside urban areas in Iceland are gravel roads which are not suited for fast driving.
Toll fees, parking fees and entrance fees are charged electronically in certain areas, national parks and road tunnels in Iceland.
Sometimes you can be driving on a paved road but you see a sign notifying „End of Tarred Road“ or „New Road Surface“.
Many roads in Iceland, both gravel roads and paved roads, are really narrow. Make sure to drive carefully and reduce the speed when passing other vehicles from the opposite direction.
Off–Roading is strictly forbidden in Iceland. The amazing Icelandic nature is sensitive so let´s treat it gently and with respect. F-Road and Off-road driving is not the same.
