A quick car rental recommendation

Hi,

In general most roads passable in all seasons. Otherwise I highly recommend you 4x4 car especially if you likes to drive highland roads (F-prefix).

We were there 2 years ago and we able to used F roads (of course when it wasn’t closed… J)Toyota Landcruiser is a great choice! We rented from icelandcruiser.com (parnogaszt).

Theirs car was more than enough but we were in safe during our journey. We had helped 2 times for other travelers just because they tried saving money on the right car cost…(I really don’t know why do this some people?)

Anyway his car’s has big wheels with iron angle what is necessary in snow/rocky road.

We paid ahead so we can save around 10% from the total.

If you arrive winter period you can see the northern lights anytime between September and April. Go somewhere out of the city lights and be patient. Sometimes you have to wait several hours until you see anything... 

Have a nice trip!

A nicely disguised ad by icelandcruiser.com.

A note to all new people on the forums, take any posts by those who have never posted before with a grain of salt.  Many of these are not by your fellow travelers but posts by people trying to make a buck from you.  Icelandcruiser may be a fine company, but these forums are not a place for advertisements.

Dr. Fumblefinger (Interesting name!  Hope you're not a surgeon!), I agree with your caution but I do want to note that my former Frommer's account simply vanished and I had to re-register this morning.  I wonder if this has happened to others who are legitimate "fellow travelers."  On Frommer's one can retrive a password, but not a username.  Odd.

Hello Marybj,

The mess with the handing over of the forums from Google to Frommers was made purposefully difficult by Google.  The Frommers people won't complain about this, but I will.  Google deleted everything on the forums from before May 1st, a very petty act from such a huge company in my opinion.  There were lots of problems with people having to reregister and getting new passwords.

Pauline and her team are trying hard to fix problems.  There's a thread on the forums for dealing with such problems:  http://www.frommers.com/community/forums-main.html?plckForumPage=ForumCategory&plckCategoryId=Cat%3ae979736f-48b2-4fa2-b33a-874e7352b58e#plckforumid=Cat%3Ae979736f-48b2-4fa2-b33a-874e7352b58eForum%3A5a23746d-8d50-473f-a5a6-8f63d3b73a35&plckforumpage=Forum&plckdiscussiononpage=1&plckforumpostshowfirstunread=&plckfindpostkey=  

Or perhaps contact Pauline Frommer directly and she'll guide you to someone who can help with your problem.

And the good news is that I'm not a surgeon!  I'm a surgical pathologist....

Thank you, Dr. Fumblefinger!  Yes, Google used to be the place to be, but they've gotten too big to fail--except failing those who used to trust them.  I'm back on with a new identity, as you know, but I'm hoping others will pick up on this thread and follow your guidance.  Unfortunately, one of the best travel post on Iceleand I ever read was deleted.  I followed the author's advise for my first trip and, now that i've made three, appreciate it even more.  Pity.
