Iceland has become far more accessible in recent years, with more flights arriving from more destinations. Ferry transport (from northern Denmark) makes a good alternative for Europeans wishing to take their own car.
Flights, cars and tours can be booked online at www.lonelyplanet.com/bookings.
Car The most common way for visitors to get around. Vehicles can be expensive to rent but provide great freedom. A 2WD vehicle will get you almost everywhere in summer. Driving into the highlands and on F roads requires 4WDs.
Bus A decent bus network operates in July and August, shuttling you between major destinations and into the highlands. Outside these months, services are less frequent (and even non-existent). Find an invaluable online map at www.publictransport.is.
Air If you're short on time, domestic flights can help you get around efficiently.
