Renting a campervan in Iceland
Iceland is a unique little island at the top of the world and one of the most popular ways to explore it is with a campervan. You can visit any time of the year, but a winter visit will need some extra planning and perhaps a 4x4 campervan. However, visiting Iceland in winter is also recommended as you can visit magnificent icy waterfalls, snow-swept valleys and dramatic northern lights. In the summertime, you can enjoy the midnight sun, exploding geysers and emerald-blue lagoons. Travelling around Iceland with a campervan is cost-effective and gives you the most amount of freedom to explore this beautiful island.
Why is it worth booking a campervan in Iceland early?
With long summer days, quiet roads, and panoramic vistas, Iceland is just made for campervan vacations. Two to four weeks is the perfect length of time for a leisurely road trip around Iceland's Ring Road or Route 1. Just over 800 miles in length, this trip hits the country's highlights. Take your time cruising through the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, North Iceland, the East Fjords, and South Iceland before returning to enjoy a few days in the country's lively capital Reykjavik. Demand for camper rentals in Iceland peaks between May to September. This is when daylight hours are long and the weather is mild and sunny. To guarantee getting your choice of campervan during the peak season at a price that suits your budget, we recommend booking up to four months in advance. If, at first glance, the cost of camper rent in Iceland appears high, remember that you don't have to pay nightly rates for hotel rooms, hire a car, or dine out in restaurants every day. You also have the freedom to set your own itinerary as you drive through Iceland's stunning landscapes. Booking your camper in Iceland early also gives you plenty of time to enjoy planning your road trip with the help of CamperDay's experienced customer service team. Plus, you'll benefit from no-charge rebooking should your dates change and a fair and transparent cancellation policy.
