Toll Roads in Iceland

Toll Roads in Iceland

We only have one toll road in Iceland 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 Akureyri on the road 1. Vaðlaheiðagöng is a new tunnel on the Icelandic Ring Road; after the tunnel opened, the ring road got shortened by 16km. Vaðlaheiðagöng allows drivers to skip driving over the Víkurskarð mountain, which can often be a tough road during the wintertime due to snow and ice. 

It is essential to remember that the fee to pass through Vaðlaheiðagöng is 1500 ISK. To pay this fee, you have to go to the website www.tunnel. There are no toll booths or pay machines before entering the tunnel. This fee has to be paid 3 hours before going through Vaðlaheiðagöng or 3 hours later. If the toll is not paid, Icerental 4x4 will receive a bill from Vaðlaheiðagöng. 

Icerental 4x4 would recommend to all travellers visiting Iceland in the summer months that driving over the Víkurskarð mountain will only take about 12 minutes long and is entirely free of charge. And it also offers some great views while driving. However, we do recommend using the tunnel in the winter months.

Vaðlaheiðagöng pricelist

We want 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 vehicle owner. When this happens, Icerental 4x4 does have to charge a handling fee or service fee of 5.000 ISK, meaning the customer will pay 6.500 ISK for the toll fine received. It 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 than once without paying, Icerental 4x4 only charges the service fee once. 

National Park Entrance Fee & Parking Fees

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

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 entry cameras that take pictures of the license plate number of the vehicle when entering and leaving the parking lots. When leaving the parking lot, this camera system checks if a payment has been made for the particular vehicle leaving the parking lot either on location or at the website. 

At Skaftafell National Park, the Parking Fee day pass is : 

Vehicles with five seats or less: 750 ISK

Cars with 6-9 seats: 1000 ISK

At Þingvellir National Park, the Parking Fee day pass is : 

Vehicles with five seats or less: 750 ISK

Cars with 8 seats or less: 1000 ISK

Cars with 18 seats or less: 1800 ISK

Icerental 4x4 would like to highlight the importance to pay these Fees when visiting Skaftafell and Þingvellir National Parks. If the Parking / Entrance Fee is not settled then Icerental4x4 will receive the fine as the vehicle owner. When this happens, Icerental4x4 does have to charge a handling fee or service fee of 5.000 ISK, meaning the customer will pay 5.750-6.000 ISK for the parking/entrance 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 multiple parking/entrance fines, Icerental4x4 only charges the service fee once.
