Ferry Travel - Iceland and the Faroes Jun 26, 2008
Travelling to the Faroes and Iceland by car can be an excellent way of enjoying the islands at your own pace and will also allow you to reach some places that normal tourist travels from Reykjavik cannot reach.

There is one slight difficulty in travelling to Iceland in your own car in that it requires a longish sea crossing using Smyrillines MV Norruna.

Heres some tips......

- book early during the summer months .. the ferry can be very busy!

- understand the ferry only visits Iceland 1 time a week!

- the sea crossing is quite long .. book a cabin it will allow you to enjoy the journey rather than being uncomfortable.

- catering on board is good and lunches dinners and breakfasts are all served - the costs are NOT included in ticket prices!! And can be alittle expensive

- The ship is well equipped with entertainment

- internet and GSM mobile phones can be used but take care on the roaming charges!

- The route for the ship changes during the summer with an enforced stop over in the Faroes .. for first time travellers this gives an excellent opportunity to visit the Faroes and 2 days is enough.

- Check vehicle heights carefully .. high vehicles attract a premium.

Over all the ship is clean and well run with a friendly crew.

Ticket prices are not cheap but the ability to use your car round Iceland and the Faroes will open up a huge amount of possibilities.

there is no car hire at the ferry ... i guess you can fly into Reykjavik and get a car there
