Travelling in Iceland, along the major highway, which is a coastal route, is a pleasant and easy drive with a car hire. Inland, the terrain is a little trickier - the routes are little more than a network of unpaved roads, many of which are impassable in midsummer due to mud making conditions treacherous.
