The road network in Iceland has been scored 4.8 for its quality (1 lowest, 7 highest). This puts it at 38 in the world out of 137 other countries. Roads will vary significantly within the country’s different regions, so use scores as a rough guide or reference for comparison.

What is the drinking and driving limit in Iceland?

The BAC limit is 0.05% in Iceland - this applies to both visitors and residents. Your BAC level is a measurement of the percentage of alcohol in your bloodstream. This information is used to determine how inebriated an individual is. Driving a vehicle with a BAC higher than 0.05% is against the law in Iceland and you will be deemed as ‘driving under the influence’. Note that the legal drinking age in Iceland is 20. Steeper penalties will be given to those driving a vehicle who are under the legal drinking age.
