Iceland Travel Tips

South Coast Iceland

Coming to Iceland for a holiday trip? If you are, we recommend you take a self-drive tour along the south coast of Iceland. Lava Auto offers cars for rent in all sizes to suit all your needs during your stay at bargain prices.

Take road 41 from the airport on to road 43 into Grindavík passing the famous Blue Lagoon and finally on to road 427, once there the journey finally begins.

Driving road 427 is highly recommended over the summer time, with beautiful scenery surrounding you. The Atlantic ocean on your right side and lava fields and mountains on your left side.


Seljalandsfoss is a majestic waterfall which is easily accessible in all our rental cars. Located at the ring road (road 1).

Only 10 mins drive from Seljalandsfoss you can go swimming in Seljavallarlaug, a geothermal swimming pool hidden up in the mountain, a 15 min hike from the parking lot where you can park your rental car will get you there.
