Rent a campervan and discover Iceland at your leisure
Iceland is the largest volcanic island in the world and has around 330,000 inhabitants. The capital Reykjavík is the lively cultural stronghold of Iceland, which boasts wondrous scenery. The hustle and bustle in the city's bars and music clubs is impressively contrasted by idyllic and seemingly endless landscapes.
You should rent a campervan and get to know Iceland along its many attractions. This way, you will be able to visit the Volcanic archipelago "Vestmannaeyjar", which offers glorious beaches. Here you can go for a walk in peace, after all, the chain of islands with its 4,000 inhabitants is extremely sparsely populated. Afterwards, the tour continues on to marvel at the incredible geysers and finally dive into the rich bathing culture of the country. On your way, you will pass numerous thermal springs where you can relax and recharge your batteries. The Myvatn Nature Bath, for example, which welcomes you with particularly mineral-rich water, is suitable for this purpose.
Tip: Mountain bike tours
Iceland's endless expanses invite you to dream and relax, but even active holidaymakers get their money's worth here. After all, the facetted volcanic landscapes are suitable for exciting trips on the mountain bike through Iceland. You can therefore also rent a campervan in combination with a bicycle rack.

Rent a campervan - Iceland and its routes

Route from Hella to Reykjavík
The trip from Hella to the capital can be completed within one day, but you can also make flexible stopovers at the individual stages and spend the night in Selfoss or Hveragerði. After all, both cities have rich natural highlights to offer.
First you get to Selfoss, where you will find the crater lake Kerið as well as a geyser. Here the motto goes: Motor off and hiking boots on! The lake is ideal for long walks and hikes. Relax after the expeditions through nature in Hveragerði with its hot springs.
If you rent a camper and discover Iceland on this tour, Reykjavik forms the culturally rich finale. Visit the Icelandic National Museum or be inspired by the open-air museum Árbæjarsafn, in order to end the day comfortably in a bar in the evening.
Tour from Breiðdalsvík to Eskifjörður
The route from Breiðdalsvík to Eskifjörður takes you to the eastern part of the country and promises wonderful hikes along the coast of Iceland. Rent your campervan at the station of your choice and then you go on to Stöðvarfjörður. The Petra's Stone Collection stone museum awaits you here. Afterwards Reyðarfjörður then has impressive beach sections ready, which invite you to stay. Also Eskifjörður is completely dedicated to the sea and has a maritime museum at the harbour, which is just as worthwhile as the local church.

No matter how many people you want to travel with, you have the choice of different models when renting a campervan. For example, Iceland travellers can choose a small campervan if they are travelling in pairs or up to a maximum of three people. This type of vehicle offers you plenty of space and ensures that you make rapid progress in the denser traffic of Reykjavík.
For holidays with the whole family, however, you should rent a large campervan. The basic equipment includes a toilet, refrigerator and cooking hob for extensive and independent travel through Iceland. There are also alcove beds above the driver's cab so that the space inside the car can be fully utilised.
Sufficient space and the greatest possible comfort are guaranteed when you rent a luxury campervan. Visitors to Iceland can enjoy the extensive equipment and maximum comfort even in larger groups.
Tip: Barrier-free campervan
If you want to rent a campervan in Iceland, which should be barrier-free, pay attention with your search to the designation "handicapped accessible".
