Many travelers to Iceland choose the freedom of driving themselves around the country in a rental car and stay at farmhouses along the way. When traveling during the three summer months it is wise to have pre-booked accommodation in most areas.Farm Holidays have about 150 farm houses offering over 4000 beds. The style of accommodation varies from farmers offering rooms in the own homes to private cottages or guesthouses. Some farms offer guests a farming experience, horse back riding, fishing or other types of activities but not all. Staying at a farm might be a good way to get to know the Icelandic people a little better and a way to understand the part of Icelanders that live outside the capital area.
