Frequently Asked Questions

Should I choose a car rental with a rooftop tent or a campervan?

Some car rental companies in Iceland offer a rooftop tent as a substitute for a motorhome. This can be a cheaper option than a campervan; however, it is less convenient, especially in cold or windy weather, which can occur in Iceland throughout the year.

Can you sleep anywhere in a campervan in Iceland?

Most land in Iceland is privately owned, and parking a campervan overnight outside of a registered campsite is strictly prohibited without prior approval from the landowner.

There are plenty of campsites in Iceland. They are relatively cheap, starting at around 1447 Icelandic króna per night.

Can a child seat or booster seat be fitted in the campervan?

Most campervan rental companies in Iceland have vehicle options that allow child/baby seats and booster seats.

However, not all vehicles may be compatible with a child seat, and not all companies have seats available to rent. Please check the features of the vehicle when booking.

Is it safe to drive on F-roads?

Home to the country’s best-known volcanoes and glaciers, Iceland’s interior highlands can only be accessed by F-roads, indicated by a letter F in front of the road number on the map.

These mountainous and backcountry roads require a 4WD vehicle and are not advised for inexperienced drivers.

Always check whether F-roads are open, as the summer season is not long. Even then, be aware that conditions may be challenging – large rocks in the road, unbridged rivers, mud, and snow in all seasons.

Be aware that mobile reception is poor in Icelandic highlands, and there is only one gas station, in Hveravellir.

Can I pick up my campervan in Reykjavik?

All motorhome rental providers have their depots in Keflavik, which is a short drive from Reykjavik and is the gateway for most visitors to Iceland via Keflavik International Airport.

What is Iceland’s Ring Road?

Iceland is encircled by a Ring Road (Route 1) which connects many popular sights and is in suitable condition for standard vehicles. The road is just over 1,300 kilometres long – roughly thirteen hours of drive time – yet many visitors find that they’ll spend more than a week exploring the sites along the way.

Are one-way rentals available in Iceland?

Currently, all rentals in Iceland are based out of Keflavik (close to Reykjavik). Therefore, it is not possible to pick up and drop off rentals in other locations.

Does my rental include unlimited mileage?

Many campervan rentals in Iceland include unlimited kilometres in the rental rate. Some brands cap kilometres on certain models (usually at 200 km per day). In those cases, extra kilometres can be purchased.

The comparison tool will show you whether your preferred vehicle has unlimited or restricted kilometres.


Iceland Campervan Hire Tips

Free camping is not allowed in Iceland

You can not camp freely in a motorized vehicle in Iceland. It is required by law that you have written permission from the landowner.

Spend the first night in a hotel

If you've arrived on a long international flight, consider resting a day or two before driving a motorhome. The same applies if you're arriving after hours - not all depots offer after-hour pickup.

Maintain your campervan

Take care of your rental campervan, especially when planning a long trip. Check tyre pressure, coolant levels and follow other direction given by the RV rental company.

Many campsites close for the winter

Campsites in Iceland are generally good with many extra facilities like showers and toilets. Unfortunately, most campsites close for the winter. The good news is, you are still able to camp, just without access to these extra facilities.

Campervan Hire Iceland Reviews


Popular Attractions in Iceland

Town of Husavik

Its name meaning 'Bay of Houses', the northern Icelandic coast town of Husavik can claim the title of the country's earliest settlement. It was first inhabited in the year 870.

While fishing is still strong in Husavik, many visitors come for whale watching as well as nearby attractions along the Diamond Circle Route such as Lake Myvatn, the thundering waters of the powerful Dettifoss Waterfall, the port of Akureyri and Eider Falls.

Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon

A relatively new attraction along the Ring Road in Southeast Iceland, Jokulsarlon Lagoon did not exist prior to a warming trend that started around 1920. Due to increased melting of Vatnajokull Glacier (one of Europe's largest), Jokulsarlon has experienced rapid growth to become Iceland's deepest lake at 245 metres and, at present, covers 18 square kilometres.

Kirkjufell Mountains

Possibly the most photographed mountain in Iceland, Kirkjufell Mountain near the town of Grundarfjordur is a highlight of West Iceland’s 56-miles-long Snaefellsnes peninsula.

Its name meaning Church Mountain, Kirkjufell is an isolated peak, jutting fiercely out into the sea; its steep sides are a result of pressure, placed on the rock when it was squeezed between two glacial tongues.

The mountain can be climbed in about 90 minutes or there is an easy walking trail around the base, as well as to the three-pronged Kirkjufellsfoss waterfall.

Northern Lights

Lying at 64 degrees North latitude and offering twenty hours of winter darkness daily, Iceland is in prime position for viewing the aurora borealis, or northern lights, and many companies offer professionally guided tours to see this winter wonder.

With the lights visible for eight months, from September to April, aurora borealis viewing in Iceland benefits from less cloud cover than other northern locations, and solar activity forecasts allow you to plan accordingly.

Seljalandsfoss Waterfall

Probably Iceland's most famous and photographed waterfall, sixty-metre-high Seljalandsfoss has as its source the glaciers of the Eyjafjallajokull volcano.

Easily accessed from the island-circling Ring Road (Route 1) and less than a two-hour drive from Reykjavik, the waters of Seljalandsfoss fall over an ancient sea cliff to feed a meadow that is filled with colourful wildflowers in summer.

Vestrahorn Mountains

Southeastern Iceland’s Stokknes Peninsula is home to three jagged ‘horn’ mountains: Vestrahorn (west horn), Brunnhorn (‘well horn’- Brunner means wishing well), and Eystrahorn (east horn).

Just 6.2 miles off the island-circling Ring Road near Hofn, dramatic 454-metre-tall Vestrahorn – also called Batman Mountain – is a photographer’s favourite, though all three are worthy of attention.

Beneath the steep slopes of these peaks, lie picturesque black sand beaches and dunes, and one of the first settlements in Iceland has been identified nearby.
