What better place to experience the modified Land Rover Defender and develop your driving skills than Iceland! This one day self drive tour includes 4x4 instruction with a qualified instructor. The day will start with covering the basics of 4x4 mechanics and driving techniques using slides and by inspecting the vehicle. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be served. After this, the instructor will take you out on tracks close to Reykjavik, to put the theory in practise. After the practice session you will be provided with a detailed itinerary with the Golden Circle route mapped into the vehicle's GPS. The rest of the day is yours to refine your driving skills and explore the beautiful Icelandic scenery along the famous Golden Circle route!
