Helping you to plan your Iceland trip since 2012

We have changed our focus a bit, based on the feedback we have had from the user community. A big project in 2018 was the addition of road trip plans for popular routes such as the Golden Circle, the Diamond Circle in the north of Iceland, the Ring Road and the South Coast. We also found a way for our readers to book hotel rooms or other accommodation at the best price possible on the Booking.com platform.  The same goes for renting a car on the Rentalcars.com.
