We rented a classic Land Rover Defender from ISAK for a bit more than a week. Plus some river crossing driving school which was a lot of fun (maybe not cheap, but still fun and well worth it!). These cars have seen a lot -- and that is exactly what you want. No electronic gimmicks, nothing fancy -- just a workhorse that does its duty everywhere and all the time. Don't get cocky, though ... rivers can be deeper than you think and roads more rocky and slippery than you ever imagined. So "ride" that workhorse responsibly .. you will have soooo much fun. Service was great. If we return to Iceland, we will rent from ISAK again -- no doubt!

I found the guy who owns and runs ISAK 4x4 to be very honest and straight forward. I actually liked him quite a bit. I would have no hesitation recommending him to anyone wanting to rent a 4x4. We rented a Land Rover Defender for 10 days in January 2020 to drive around the Ring Road. We made it no problem. Previous experience in Patagonia showed me that normally after returning it, a rental company will go over the vehicle with a fine tooth comb looking for any damage they can find, seemingly disappointed if they can't find anything. This was not the case at ISAK. We were very careful with it the whole time and returned it in the same condition it was in when we picked it up. The guy took my word for it, and that was that. I appreciated that. As for the negative reviews I read here, my opinion is that it would be very stupid for a person with no 4-by experience to rent a Land Rover. Anything made in England is going to be quirky, it's a given. So if you can't handle that, do not rent a Land Rover! Do yourself a favor and rent a Toyota Landcruiser LX or GX instead, especially if you require good brakes, or the heater to work all the time, or the doors to close properly all the time, etc. A Defender is a very cool and iconic vehicle, BUT IT IS NOT FOR EVERYONE! If you happen come from around Moab or anywhere near the Rubicon Trail, you'll be fine in one, otherwise I would strongly suggest you get a Toyota. But whatever it is, ISAK 4x4 is a very solid, honest, no BS place to get it at. I highly recommend them!

Wanting to venture away from Reykjavik for a couple of days during our stay, we researched various specialist 4x4 rental companies. We were attracted by the modified Land Rover Defenders on the ISAK website and booked a 3 day rental. Our vehicle (ISAK7) was awesome and we were able to tackle some otherwise tricky terrain, some of which were roads which were completely iced and snow drifted. Our 2 children loved the experience and our tours out to the Hotels Husafell and ION Adventure were so much more fun than if we had opted for a standard rental 4x4. Great booking experience with a friendly team. The handover of the Defender to us was also very detailed, with a full explanation given of all controls and emergency procedures in the event of an accident or breakdown/ puncture. Great fun and a solid recommendation.

We had heard about the "F" roads and knew we wanted to explore off the beaten path. We rented the Land Cruiser and went on all sorts of adventures. We had unpaved roads, river crossings, waterfalls, glaciers and scenic vistas all to ourselves because we could get off the main roads. If you like to explore, renting a converted 4x4 gives you lots more options than a traditional 4x4.

LandRover Defender - the best vehicle for negotiating the 'F' roads by far. These are 'preloved and experienced' vehicles and have a few quirks but that just adds to the overall experience. Wouldn't think of using any other vehicle to tour in Iceland.
