Toll Roads in Iceland

Toll Roads

Toll Roads in Iceland 

In Iceland we only have one toll road that drivers will need to pay when driving around Iceland. This road is a tunnel called Vaðlaheiðagöng that is 7.5km long. This tunnel is found in the North of Iceland, a few km outside of Akureyri on road 1. Vaðlaheiðagöng is a new tunnel that lies on the Icelandic Ring Road, after the tunnel opened the ring road got shorten by 16km. Vaðlaheiðagöng allows drivers to skip driving over the Víkurskarð mountain that can often be a tough road during winter time due to snow and ice. 

It is important to keep in mind that the fee to pass through Vaðlaheiðagöng is 1500 ISK. To pay this fee you have to go to the website www.tunnel.is as there are no toll booths or pay machines before entering the tunnel. This fee has to be paid either 3 hours before going through Vaðlaheiðagöng or 3 hours after. If the toll is not paid Icerental 4x4 will receive a bill from Vaðlaheiðagöng. 

Icerental 4x4 would like to recommend to all travelers visiting Iceland in the summer months that driving over the Víkurskarð mountain will only take about 12 minutes longer and is completely free of charge. And it also offers some great views while driving. We do recommend to use the tunnel in the winter months.

We would like to point out that if the toll is not paid within the time limits of 6 hours and Icerental 4x4 receives the fine as the owner of the vehicle. When this happens Icerental 4x4 does have to charge a handling fee or service fee of 3.000 ISK, meaning the customer will pay 4.500 ISK for the toll fine received. This is done because of the work that our customer service team has to provide when we receive the fine. 

If a customer drives through Vaðlaheiðagöng more then once without paying, Icerental 4x4 only charges the service fee once. 

National Park Enterance Fee & Parking Fees

At two of our National Parks in Iceland there are parking fees when you are visiting by car. These are Þingvellir National Park and Skaftafell National Park. At both these parks you will find clear instructions where to pay. You can either pay on location at pay machines and you can also pay online at these websites

and 

https://myparking.is/pay/thingvellir/

The charge for each parking depends on the length of the stay. Each charge is per day and is valid until midnight each day. When entering these parking locations they have entery cameras that take pictures of the license plate number vehicle when entering and leaving the parking lots. When leaving the parking lot, these camera system checks if a payment has been done for the particular vehicle leaving the parking lot either on location or at the website. 

At Skaftafell National Park the Parking Fee daypass is : 

Vehicles with 5 seats or less : 750 ISK

Vehicles with 6-9 seats : 1000 ISK

Icerental 4x4 would like to highlight the importance to pay these Fees when visiting Skaftafell and Þingvellir National Parks. If the Parking / Enterance Fee is not paid then Icerental4x4 will receive the fine as the owner of the vehicle. When this happens Icerental4x4 does have to charge a handling fee or service fee of 3.000 ISK, meaning the customer will pay 3.750-4.000 ISK for the parking / enterance fine received. This is done because of the work that our customer service team has to provide when we receive the fine. 

If a customer will receive multible parking / enterance fine, Icerental4x4 only charges the service fee once.
