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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Note: policies vary from supplier to supplier. Always check the T&Cs for your rental.
