Her favorite spot in Iceland is Skardsvik beach on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, with Husavik village a close second. Her favorite Icelandic saying is „Þetta reddast“ – roughly translated as „Eh…it‘ll be fine.“
What you need to know about the Iceland Travel App

Updated May 2023

Every year, Iceland Travel welcomes thousands of travelers who embark on a road trip adventure in Iceland. If you book any one of Iceland Travel’s self-drive packages, you will receive access to our Iceland Travel App.

Our app is mobile-based and can easily be used on your personal phone, tablet or computer. The app includes:

  • Information on over 1500 star points all over Iceland, plus 35 points of interest with an audio guide. The star points include a selection of tours and activities that you can book in each area.
  • Links to electronic versions of our Iceland Travel Road Book in English, French, Italian, Spanish and Dutch. The Road Book covers interesting places to visit, in addition to safety information and driving tips.
  • Access to your travel documents.
  • A feature to save places to your personalized map for future visits.

How Do I Use the Iceland Travel App?

You will receive a QR code with the app one week before departure so you can explore things to do in Iceland before your trip. Once you are in the app, you can download your personalized travel map. You can use it offline either at home to plan your trip or while you are in Iceland.

While traveling you can navigate from your current GPS location to your desired Star Point or Point of Interest by clicking “Navigate Me“ under the name of the point. You can use either walking directions (great for a stroll in Reykjavik) or driving directions.

If you prefer not to use the App, links to our PDF Roadbook will be available in your travel documents or in the App in your profile.
