  3. Unpredictable weather.  By camping you can change your schedule with the changes in weather.
  4. In a camper van you can go anywhere and do anything you want to do.
    There are 3 persons per square kilometer in Iceland. This allows you to basically disappear into the nature in a motor-home, caravan or camper van.
  5. No reservations needed. In Iceland you won’t need to reserve a spot at a camp site . You need simply to show up and enjoy it. Camp sites are very modern and have good facilities.

  10. Unpack once.  Instead of having to pack and unpack every day, with a camper you can unpack once.
Small camper vans are perfect for couples. Certainly beats setting up a tent every night. Compact but weather proof!
Camper rentals in Iceland can be tiny i.e. cooking outside to full sized RVs. Smaller campers are easier to drive and are cheaper but have some drawbacks regarding space.
Larger RV type campers are available with luxuries such as bathrooms and more space for larger families. Just be sure to read the rental agreement! Most don’t allow you to go on unpaved roads!
