Departure (transfer not included).

Aseguraros de que os aventuráis solamente por aquellos lugares de los que vais a poder salir por vustros propios medios.

No corráis riesgos innecesarios cerca de cascadas, ríos o fuentes termales. Mantened siempre una distancia segura y conducid con prudencia.

No circuléis en solitario y con vehículos de alquiler por caminos donde podáis encontraros con ríos sin puentes.

La Carretera Nacional Circular cuenta con 1.340 km y da la vuelta por completo a la isla. Las carreteras secundarias os llevarán hasta los fiordos y las penínsulas.

Si decidís realizar una caminata, explorar un glaciar o las Tierras Altas, informad siempre previamente de vuestros planes.

Conducir por fuera de las carreteras está totalmente prohibido. La vegetación subártica necesita muchos años para desarrollarse y los vehículos la destruyen fácil y rápidamente.

El tiempo en Islandia es muy variable. Llevad siempre en vuestra mochila una prenda de abrigo, una impermeable y otra más ligera.
