Drivers and all passengers in motorhomes are required by law to wear seatbelts. Older children must wear seatbelts and younger children and infants must be seated in car-safety seats in motorhomes and cars.
Motorhome headlights must be switched on at all times, day or night, when driving in Iceland. The use of mobile phones whilst driving is prohibited.
Driving around Iceland
Driving around Iceland in your rental motorhome is a wonderful way to experience all those superstars of nature at your own pace. Most people visiting choose to drive the ring road (Rte.1) since it runs by the island’s beautiful coast connecting a progression of natural wonders and attractions.
The Ring Road extends around the coast of Iceland with a total length of 1,339 kilometres (832 miles). The road is mostly paved and very well maintained, however there are stretches of unpaved gravel surfaces in the eastern part of the country. The majority of the Ring Road is comprised of a single carriageway with two traffic lanes, one in each direction. Note that it may expand with more lanes when it passes through larger towns and cities.
