Iceland is a big island with few people. The island itself is 103,000 km2  but only has 321,857 people living there. That’s equivalent to one street in New York! Even though so few people live here,Iceland has a lot to offer. What you want to do on your holiday or short-break is up to you, but Avis car hire will help you get there.

To get the best out of Iceland you should consider renting your own car. Wouldn’t it be great to pick up your car from the airport? No waiting in line for buses! Then collect your car at one of our Avis stations.

Iceland is one of the most sparsely populated countries in Europe so it can easily take a few hours to travel from one destination to another. By driving a rental car, you control the speed, where to stop for taking pictures and where to eat.

Iceland is becoming an increasingly popular tourist destination is therefore very well serviced all year round. If you want to travel here in the winter time we recommend that you drive out of the city and explore the Northern lights. Avis cars are fully equipped for the winter in Iceland. The Northern light activity is really intense this year inIceland and is therefore an ideal place to visit and experience this nature wonder. Lie on the ground and stare up to see the colorful light show… there really are no words to describe it! Just come here and see it with your own eyes.

Horseback-riding, hiking, whale watching, nature wonders and swimming pools are just a fragment of family entertainment possible in Iceland. Icelanders are family people, and family fun is therefore really important to them.

Summers in Iceland are full of life. Across the country there are festivals you can take part in, involving fish, music, old traditions, food, snowboards, cars and many other interesting things. By having your own rental car you can pick and choose the festival that interests you the most and drive ahead.

When you don’t have much time to travel, you don’t want to spend it by trying to find your way around. To help with this problem Avis has GPS units you can rent with the car. Avis Iceland has also started a new program called My Way. My Way is a programmed day tours with a mix of interesting stories, facts and history which you can listen to while you drive around. These tours are designed so you can get the most out of one day in Iceland. You can choose from three My Way tours;Golden Circle, South Shore and Reykjanes Peninsula.

What you want to do in Iceland is up to you, whether you want to taste the famous shark and Brennivín? Or see Glacier Lagoon? Look at whales? Or maybe relax up in the country and breathe in the fresh air? Avis wants to be a part of your experience and make it easier to travel between places, so book a car now and experience as much of Iceland as you can.
