During summer (June-September) a 4x4 jeep is not required unless you wish to drive on mountain trails (F-roads) or prefer it for the comfort as there are some gravel roads along the way.
During spring & autumn (May & October) a 4x4 jeep is not mandatory but highly recommended since it can easily snow on the mountain passes.
During winter (November-April) we do not offer this trip as some key mountain passes in the Westfjords close due to snow.

Additional information for your Iceland trip will be sent to you along with the detailed itinerary. This will include details about driving in Iceland, weather and clothing, currencies and payments, electricity system, food and water, safety, contact info, and other useful tips.
