Iceland is known for its beauty and uniqueness, such as large waterfalls, the black sand beach and the large mountains all over the country.
The country is split between two continents, you can actually see and stand on either side of the continental divide. Iceland campervan hire is famous for visiting the country’s hot springs, geysers and often active volcanoes. Lava fields cover much of the land and hot water is pumped from under the ground to supply much of the country's heating, but also supply heat to the country’s hot springs.
Iceland is not only full of beautiful places but also has a very rich history. The history is fascinating and worth reading up on before travelling to Iceland.
To protect the natural beauty of the country, wild camping in your motorhome hire in Iceland is no longer permitted. You must stay in one of Iceland's many campsites or gain the permission of the landowner to spend the night on private land. But that doesn't mean camping isn't available in great places. Campsites are all over Iceland, so you won't have trouble finding campsites ranging from campsite Reykjavík to þórisstaðir or even the campgrounds in Álftanes which has a rich history behind it too.
In Iceland, the roads are pretty good if you're staying on the main road. However, smaller roads, even popular ones, tend to be unpaved. Some are pure gravel and are safe as long as you drive slowly. There are no main road tolls or any campervan tolls that you have to worry about. Icelanders drive on the right side of the road.
Iceland's weather varies throughout the year, but it can be very cold in winter, so the best time to travel and rent a campervan is in summer.
Even though it can get quite cold, you can rent a campervan in Iceland at any time of the year. Just remember to bring snacks and a warm wool sweater or two.
Activities in Iceland are never limited. During the peak of summer, July and August, temperatures can rise to 27-28ºC. But whether the weather is good or bad there are always a lot of activities you can partake in. Visit one of the many hot springs are available to you all over Iceland, enjoy them year-round. Iceland’s mountains are perfect for hiking in the spring and summer, and there are caves you can explore in fall or summer.
Iceland is especially busy during the months of August to April when tourists visit the country for the beautiful Northern lights.
But summers are also very popular, so expect a tourist two in your photos. Reykjavík is very expensive and prices rise in the peak of summer as demand rises.
