Recommended Rental campervan drives and camper parks

Golden Circle:

This is the most popular route, taking drivers on a tour of the county’s most visited attractions. It starts and ends in Reykjavik, the capital. Explore Thingvellir National Park from Syori-Leirar Camping Ground, see geysers in action at Strokkur’s Fludir Camping Ground and take photos of Europe’s largest waterfall while resting at Thjorsardalur Camping Ground. This is the classic tour of Iceland, a 300km to loop from Reykjavík into central Iceland then back again. However, there is a reason that is is the classic loop! With so many things to see, one of the most popular is the gigantic waterfall of Gullfoss. If waterfalls aren’t interesting, have things heat up and see some of the many geysers of the Haukadalur valley. See Strokkur erupt every 5 to 15 minutes! However, keep an eye out on the weather and be prepared for your journey. Iceland lives up to it’s name quite often.

Reykjavik to Akureyri:

Take a detour route to visit the Borgarfjordur Valley, the Snaefellsnes Peninsula and Skagafrjorour’s ‘Valley of the Horses’. Stop in camper sites such as Hellissandur Camping Ground or Siglufjordur Camping Ground. There is no shortage of things to see on this 5 hour journey. One can make this trip last weeks if one stops and enjoys some of the amazing sights along the way. Be one of the few to see and hike Kerlingarfjöll mountain range, one of Iceland’s most popular hiking destinations that’s also covered in volcanic rhyolite stone that creates a red plain. With numerous hiking trails and hot springs, one can relax after some of the long journeys and incredible views they will see. Be prepared if hiking! As well as a million other things to see, don’t forget to stop by and see the picturesque and epic symbol of the Iceland, the Snæfellsjökull volcano!

Interior drive:

From Keflavik, first stop at the famous Blue Lagoon then travel north to Landmannalaugar where you will be surrounded by natural beauty, finishing at the famous Vatnajoukull National Park. Stay overnight in Austurvegur Camping Ground or Vatnajokull National Park Camping Ground. The Blue Lagoon is that classic Icelandic picture that pops up when googling for things to do in Iceland, and there’s a reason. This geothermal spa from 1976 is known for it’s blue water and mud that is rubbed on the skin is one of the top tourist attractions of Iceland. After you’ve had enough laying around and soaking in the water, give a shot of hiking the Landmannalaugar, the edge of a lava field that many admire every year. Hike through the lava field and enjoy some of the amazing views. For those that are tired on their journey, one can also camp out in one of the places that Iceland offers! Not much for walking? Do it on horse here!

The Weather in Iceland is Unpredictable

The weather in Iceland is unpredictable, with the climate frequently changing from sunny to wet in a matter of hours. It rains consistently throughout the year, with the rain often turning into snow between September and May. The wettest parts of the country are along the south and the west coasts, while the north and the east tend to experience drier conditions, albeit much cooler temperatures in the winter. Still, Iceland’s location south of the Arctic Circle means that winter temperatures here are mild, while summers are cool but cold in the mountainous interior. The weather is best from mid-June to August, with many tourist facilities outside of Reykjavík closing for the rest of the year.
