Self-drive holidays

Prepare for a truly open road when embarking on a self-drive holiday in Scandinavia and Canada. After leaving the airport behind, look forward to a road-trip skirting sites that will stay with you forever. Our fly-drive holidays are customised to match your desire for freedom. Perhaps it will be a spectacular mountain pass experiencing all seasons in a day. Or a long slow drive meandering past fjords and villages. Or a 4x4 adventure in the highlands of Iceland. There’s a road-trip for everyone.

Iceland and the Faroe Islands have surprising views at every turn.

What to expect from a self-drive holiday with Magnetic North Travel

Taking to the open road

We’ll begin by mapping out a route for your chosen destination and selecting the accommodation to suit. Whether you’d like a full itinerary of longer drives, or a more relaxed pace with longer stops, we’ll ensure that your route is manageable and gives you time to visit the sites that interest you. 

If you’d like to include guided excursions and activities, then we’ll be sure to make suggestions, or you can simply be inspired by our on-location recommendations to visit as you choose. These will all be mapped in your handy travel app, available 24/7 on your device.

Regional focus: Iceland and Faroe Islands

Open roads all the way

These mountainous islands in the mid-Atlantic are traversed by open roads that beg to be explored. Follow them and you won’t be disappointed. Just watch for sheep as they wander the roadsides. And look out for wildlife - the summer months see visitors of the bird variety nest in cliffs. Our self-drive holidays in Iceland and the Faroe Islands can be tailored to your travel dates and can include summer boat tours and guided hikes. If you have time why not combine Iceland and the Faroe Islands which are connected by a ferry crossing or short flight. In Iceland and the Faroe Islands, our local partners provide round-the-clock back up in case of any problems and there’s even a free sim card for your phone to use if needed.

Newfoundland scenic views behind every corner

Discover at your own pace

Newfoundland is sometimes referred to as Iceland's Canadian sibling. The islands, both weathering the coastal climes of the North Atlantic, strike with extraterrestial landscapes, unconventional hotels and of course long-winding empty roads. Considering that the flight across the Atlantic only takes two hours more than to Iceland makes Newfoundland an attractive alternative to fans of the volcanic island.

Meandering along Norway's most iconic corners

Wild, rugged and dramatic

Explore Norway on a fly and drive holiday taking you to UNESCO world heritage sights, quaint coastal villages and azure blue coastal waters. Each day new natural gems and adventures await. Why not rent a kayak or bike one day to go even further off the beaten path?

We enjoyed all the varied accommodation and were particularly surprised when we opened the door of our Rorbu in Nusfjord!
