About Iceland and Why You Should Rent a Car in Iceland
Although Iceland is a large island, it is still significantly smaller than the UK. Iceland is considered to be part of Europe even though it is located far out in the Atlantic Ocean equidistant between mainland Europe and North America. Iceland is located above the geographic area known as the Mid Atlantic Range and this makes it a hotspot for volcanic activity.
Despite the fact that there have been 30 or so eruptions over the last couple of centuries, Iceland is perfectly safe to visit and you may even get the chance to see active lava from a reassuring distance. The cooled lava has made some crazy shapes including land that American astronauts actually practised their moonwalking on. There is also a strange shape known as "Troll's Cathedral".
The geothermal properties of the island are used for creating energy as well as being channelled into areas known as 'hot pots' where the locals relax in warm waters.
Iceland's capital Reykjavik is the most northerly European capital. Being so far north there is almost year-round sunshine though the temperatures get down to freezing in January. The midnight sun is always a source of amazement to first time visitors while people come from all over the world to Iceland to see one of nature's wonders, the Northern Lights, otherwise known as Aurora Borealis.
About 150,000 people live in Reykjavik, half of the total population of Iceland. The residents of Iceland are the descendants of Nordic people and Norwegian Vikings. They are for the most part an attractive bunch with a fun loving spirit. Just as their ancestors did, the economy of modern day Iceland has been mostly based on fishing. There have been many attempts to diversify this and while the Icelandic banking system was dealt a heavy blow during the financial crisis the island still relies heavily on tourism for its revenue. Up until the global recession Iceland had one of the highest standards of living in the world.
With such a small population Iceland is pleasantly uninhabited. However, if you really want to explore Iceland renting a car is your best option. Experiencing Iceland by car will make your vacation even better because you can decide where to go without relying on public transport or expensive taxis. Just rent a car from us and have a memorable holiday by visiting beautiful spots without being disturbed by other people.
Much of Iceland is made up of rugged terrain including mountains and glaciers so if you are planning to visit those parts of Iceland, we recommend to rent a 4x4 vehicle. Iceland's highest peak is Hvannadalshnjukur which is more than two thousand one hundred metres high and Iceland has the largest glacier in Europe, Vatnajokull. Walking and hiking are very rewarding in Iceland and for those who want to enjoy outdoor camping in Iceland, we also offer camper van rentals. Bird watching is world renowned here as you can see huge colonies of puffins and some spectacular seabirds. Whale watching is also a very popular past-time with a high success rate for sightings. We are sure that you'll enjoy your stay in Iceland thoroughly and we hope to make your experience even better by serving you with our vast array of affordable rental cars.
