Frequently Asked Questions

About Campers and vans 

Do you want to spend some time staying amidst Iceland's staggering countryside? Travellers hoping to get out into the beautiful Icelandic wilderness are recommended to pick from our selection of campers and vans. Read some of the most frequently asked questions about campers and vans in Iceland. 

1. What sort of cars are considered campers and camper vans?

This category contains all vehicles that can double as accommodation, be they motorhomes, smaller camping cars or cars equipped with attached camping gear or rooftop tents. The models range from small, converted campers, such as Volkswagen Caddy, to rooftop tent jeeps for highlands travel, such as Suzuki Jimny and Mitsubishi Pajero.

2. What is the difference between a camping van and a car with a rooftop tent?

A camping van is a converted moving van that has been made so that there is space for sleeping comfortably inside it. The rooftop tent vehicles have a foldable tent on the top of the car, accessible by a ladder. The rooftop tent is closer to regular camping, while the vans are more in the line of a very small motorhome.

3. What is included in the rental?

All rental options include unlimited mileage and CDW insurance, though some will also add GPS devices or additional insurance. This means that extra attention must be paid to the ‘included’ section when finalising your booking. CDW insurance covers damage and injury caused by the vehicle, but does not cover damage caused to the vehicle itself. Also, be aware that some rental campers and vans will also include free camping equipment, with the specific contents varying from option to option.

4. Are cars in this category suitable for driving in Iceland in all seasons?

Yes, but please be aware that it is not recommended to go camping during the winter in Iceland. All services for campers will typically close at the end of September each year. 

5. What sort of tyres do these cars have?

During the summer months, campers and vans are generally fitted with typical tires, while in the winter, they are fitted with studded tires. Studded tires come with a vehicle from 1st November to mid-April.

6. Can I go into the highlands on this type of car?

Yes, there are certain rental options within this category that are possible to take to the Icelandic highlands. Models that are suitable are marked specifically, while the additional information within your booking documents will determine which part of the highlands you can visit or not. 

7. Is it legal to camp in the wild in Iceland? 

Wild camping is allowed in Iceland, thought only in tents. New rules stipulate that you must get permission from the landowner to camp if; you plan to stay near human habituations or farms, if you’re planning on staying more than one night, if you are pitching more than three tents or if the land is cultivated. It is also important to talk to the landowner if if you plan to use tent trailers, tent campers, camper vans, caravans or similar equipment outside of a campsite.
