Can you visit Iceland on a camping holiday?

CampEasy logoAbsolutely, is the answer. More and more tourists to Iceland are opting to rent campervans and experience the nature and wilderness atmosphere of this sparsely populate country, rather than be herded into tour buses to the Blue Lagoon and other popular sites.

Camping in Iceland is a recommended way to see the best of this remote island, it’s roughly the size of the United Kingdom but most of it resembles Scotland, with endless vistas, few towns, and plenty of places to camp.

CampEasy camper rental service offer rental of cars and vans suitable for camping in Iceland. They cite an increasing number of visitors choosing to see the country from their tent flaps rather than hotel windows, come rain or shine.

Typically the SUV type vehicles are most popular, since they are better for the terrain – not all roads are sealed especially in campsites – and come equipped with camping gear. There are numerous places to ‘pitch tent’ in Iceland, and some comfortable campsites with ablutions and amenities. But you could also opt for a proper campervan if you prefer not to rough-it too much.
