Getting around by Air
Getting around by air is the fasted way of moving from place to place in Iceland. The network of domestic flights is pretty good, but a lot of schedules have to depend on the weather conditions.

Getting around by Bus
There are regular bus services from Reykjavik to most parts of the country, operated by several bus companies under the supervision of BSI. Bus travel is inexpensive, comfortable and efficient. During the winter bus services are limited. Reservations are normally not necessary.
Getting around by Car
Getting around by car is the most flexible option for travelers in Iceland, but driving may be more challenging than many of the visitors are used to. The roads are mostly gravel than paved. Most roads in the mountains are only accessible in the summer and require 4WD cars.
Car rental is relatively expensive and availability of four-wheel drive vehicles is very low, due to high demand.
