Transportation options

When you travel with us through Iceland, we can offer different kind of transportation depending on your preferences and budget. Some places in Iceland, such as the glaciers and the highland interior, cannot be reached by ordinary cars or jeeps, you will need specially modified vehicles (Super jeeps) or helicopters.

Here is a list of some of the transportation options offered by First Class Travel:

Super Jeeps

Our Super jeeps are heavily modified 4wd jeeps (Ford Excursions, Nissan Patrols, Toyota Land Cruisers, Land Rovers). The tyres are large, 38-46 inches in diameter, giving the Super jeeps very high clearance from the ground. The way these specially equipped trucks are used in Iceland is really unique in the world. The jeeps are privately owned and are hired with a professional driver experienced in the most advanced off-road driving situations. The vehicles seat from 4 to 7 passengers.

 Super Trucks

The Super trucks are heavily modified 4wd trucks (Ford Econoline, Mercedes Sprinter)  The tyres are large, 38-46 inches in diameter, giving the Super trucks very high clearance from the ground.  The jeeps are privately owned and are hired with a professional driver experienced in the most advanced off-road driving situations. The vehicles seat from 8 to 16 passengers.

 

Self-drive Super Jeeps

We can offer a fleet of modified self-drive vehicles. These are Land Rover Defenders 110 with 38″ tyres which increases floatation and clearance from the road, which makes them ideal for driving in snow, on glaciers and other very rough terrain. These vehicles seat 4-6 people.

 

Helicopters

Some places are just not reachable from the ground. We can offer helicopter services to visit these places, or just to shorten tha travelling time for those with limited time. Helicopter sightseeing tours are also available from Reykjavík city to visit some of the highlights of the country. The helicopters seat from 4 to 8 passengers.
