Driving from Reykjavík to Gullfoss


My friends and I are to going Iceland in early June and we planned to visit the Gullfoss Golden Waterfall. Does anyone know the road condition of the route (From route 37-35)? Will it be bumpy?I am thinking of renting a small automatic 4 Volkswagen Polo, is it ok for that route or should I rent a 4x4 instead?

Btw I am searching on rentalcars.com is there any other good suggestion for car rental provider?

You should be fine. 35 is a tar road and is not bumpy. You should also visit the Kerid Crater going up from Selfoss...try that route.

The route is Tarmac all the way. A 2WD car will be fine.

We drove there last week in a small Toyota Yaris, road absolutely fine. We rented it from Procar, no problems, Includes a free GPS which was very handy, all main destinations such as Gullfoss already programmed in as "Favourites".

I am heading to Iceland this wednesday... last minute trip. Just going to rent a car and bring my gear to hike off the road... nothing too adventurous... any suggestions? Planning 3 nights on the road and I plan to stay on the west coast... already been out east. I have my solo tent, 20-degree slp-bag, pack and all the essentials... any suggestions? I just want to chill out and enjoy the sites!
