RED Car Rental, a leading car rental company, has stated that the majority of Iceland’s best sights can be found just off the country’s main road, which lends itself perfectly for self drive tours.
The Icelandic car rental company is known for offering a superb range of 2014 car models, all suitable to travel across Iceland’s Route One. RED offers anything from small economy cars to high-end luxury vehicles.
Gardar Saevarsson, Marketing Manager at RED Car Rental, notes that sights such as Vik, Jokulsarlon, and Egilsstadir, are popular places to visit just off the road.
The village of Vik is the southernmost village in Iceland and is home to the world famous black sand beaches, and fantastic bird life. There are various amazing hiking trails, as well as fishing trips and horseback riding trails located at Vik.
Jokulsarlon is the iconic glacial lagoon located at the foot of Europe’s largest glacier Vatnajokull. The lagoon offers boat rides for the whole family, where you can find icebergs and the occasional seal.
Egilsstadir is a fairly large village in the east of Iceland, and is easily accessible via Route One. The village is located near Iceland’s biggest forest Hallormsstadaskogur and the beautiful waterfall Hengifoss. Egilsstadir is also the birthplace of Magnus Magnusson, Iceland’s famous strongman.
For the convenience of visitors, RED’s customers can pick up their vehicles from either Keflavik International Airport or the BSI bus terminal in Reykjavik. If the latter is preferred, RED will provide its customers with a free return ticket on the Flybus airport shuttle to and from the airport.
