Motorhome travel in Iceland – The highlands of Iceland
Add whole new dimension to your Iceland holidays by visiting small towns or villages to enjoy genuine hospitality, explore scenic surroundings and learn about the culture and lifestyle of rural Iceland.
For centuries, the interior of Iceland was virtually inaccessible, for years at a time playing host only to outlaws in hiding. Via the mountain roads Kjölur and Sprengisandur, the untouched wilderness of Iceland’s mountainous centre is now open to the general public—for cautious exploration by foot or 4×4 vehicles—in the summer months.
The highlands of Iceland are an untamed mingling of rocky deserts, jagged peaks, volcanoes, ice caps, valleys and hot springs, that should be explored at all times with respect, care and preparatory measures.
