We rented the Suzuki Jimny 4x4 with the roof tent in April for a 10 day trip. Camping Iceland was incredibly informative and accommodating; they made the process of renting a vehicle an absolute breeze. The Jimny was extremely comfortable and easy to drive (even when going up against 30km/hr winds!). The 4WD was incredibly useful and it got us to every destination we wanted to reach. We will definitely be recommending Camping Iceland to any of our friends who will be traveling to Iceland in the future!
We rented the Dodge Ram with a TravelLite camper for 12 days in September and had an amazing experience. Our vehicle was not ready when we initially arrived so Asgeir gave us the keys to his truck so that we could go buy supplies at a local grocery store while we waited. The truck was incredibly comfortable to ride in, even on the very bumpy road to Selfoss, and was very easy to drive. This truck is 4WD which came in handy a couple times. The camper was very comfortable for 2 people. Asgeir gave us some good advice about the campgrounds in Iceland, and even answered our text messages at 9pm one night when we were having trouble with the lock on the camper. I would highly recommend camping Iceland, not only for the excellent truck and camper, but also for the customer service.
We rented a Dodge Ram truck with a Travellite camper in back for 9 days in June, 2016. We traveled with our son, his wife, and their two-year-old. Ásgeir at Camping Iceland made sure that we had an extra large truck with plenty of space in the back for two adults and a child car seat. He also provided a large Quechua XXL III 2 Second pop-up tent for our son and his family, since the camper is not big enough for five. This was an awesome set-up. Our son's family moved their suitcases into the large tent vestibule every time we camped, and they had plenty of room to sleep. The tent held up very well in rain and high wind.
The camper was also awesome - we had a refrigerator with a working freezer, a two burner gas stove, and a table that could fit four in bad weather - although all five of us in the camper was cramped (as expected). The combination worked very well, and the 4WD truck allowed us to explore the Westfjords, Kerlingarfjöll, and Landmannalaugar without limitations. We did find the truck camper to be a handful in high wind and a bit top-heavy on steep winding roads, but that did not prove to be a problem for us.
The experience with Camping Iceland could not have been better. We had a problem with the tent the first evening when we set it up, and they brought a replacement tent to our campground! We always got more than we expected in every encounter with this company, and it was clear their focus was on making sure we had a great trip.
I cannot recommend Camping Iceland highly enough. They really care about their customers.
in love… with Iceland!!!! Just came back from a 10 day visit on Iceland and had the best time ever! We had THE perfect travel car- a mens dream- DODGE RAM- with a camper top. Just awesome! I loved the car so much (the sound when you start it) and had the best sleep in the camper top.
Iceland is perfect for a camping holiday- cause you can nearly camp everywhere you want. With the camper van we had the best travel buddie- comfy bed, kitchen, enough space and the perfect car and comfort. We travelled with my sister and had the best time.
We even went in the highland (so good!!! Also check out the natural hot pools) and it’s only possible with 4W drive- so we were pretty lucky. It was hard for us.. but the return was pretty easy- camping Iceland has a super nice team- I would book there anytime again.. hopefully soon!!!
yeay camping iceland! wow - what a trip! it's the once in a lifetime thing...you have to make it to iceland at least once in your life. And if you make it, be sure to have the best possible setup! Me and my sister went around the island for 10 days in the most amazing car out there, rented through the super friendly, ressourceful and fun staff at camping iceland. In my humble opinion, there's nothing like the Dodge Ram Pick-up with the camping box on top - what a cool and spacious solution for "glamping"! Not gonna lie...we girls liked the comfort :) And the 4x4 comes in handy if the notorious Icelandic weather changes...nothing to be afraid of! You can do the highlands at any weather, anytime. No other camper could do that! So long story short: best service, best trip recommendations, BEST ride and simply such an amazing adventure! the pictures & memories will last for a lifetime...highly recommended!
Decided to leave all my camping gear at home and go with Camping Iceland.
They set me up with everything I needed, and I also could fit my own luggage case without any problems in my car. Thank you Camping Iceland for making my trip unforgettable
I just came back from a seven-day driving/camping trip in Iceland. After spending hours upon hours deciding on which car rental place to use, I settled on Camping Iceland and couldn't have had a more positive experience. From the get go, Daniel promptly and patiently responded to all my questions and gave me advice.
Daniel picked us up from our hotel on time and took us back to their office where we did the paperwork and he showed us how to put up and take down the pop-up tent. He was friendly, professional, and a stand-up guy. The car, a 2015 Toyota Landcruiser, was clean and almost brand new (and, had leather seats which was nice). I am glad I went for the big 4WD, especially once we got on the F roads and to the river crossings. I have driven similar roads in a RAV4 and it is a completely different experience.
The camping box has pretty much everything you need. They also have a 'pay it forward' wall in the office, so you can leave any half-full gas canisters, etc. for the next person. We also bought the mid-priced sleeping bag they had. It kept us warm camping in the highlands in early August.
I will definitely be going back to Iceland to see more of the wonderful country, and will most definitely be going with Camping Iceland again.
We camped our way around Iceland for 10 days with a Toyota Yaris and rooftop box of equipment from Camping Iceland in July 2015. Daniel was responsive and professional from my initial email inquiry six months prior to travel right up to our final billing. The equipment was complete and in good shape. The 4-person tent was especially roomy, easy to put up, and convenient.
If you want to see as much of Iceland as possible without an astronomical budget, camping is the way to go. With Camping Iceland, the logistics are simple – all you need to do is buy food. I highly recommend their service, and would definitely use them for a future trip!
Me and my fried had seven days trip in Iceland with a very well equipped Toyota Rav4 from Camping Iceland. The car was great and brought us everywhere, plenty of optional and very comfy; we were three but can easily house four people. This because of the rooftop box, stuffed with literally everything you need for camping and save room in the trunk! This is a great value and very smart solution as you don't need to bring all the equipment from home saving consistent amount of money for extra luggage, travel light and no need to buy that kind of items you probably use just one in your life.
This plus the Icelandic atmosphere gave us one of our best trip ever!
We had a great time on Iceland this summer with the Toyota Landcruiser from Camping Iceland. Great car, great camping gear and fantastic customer service! Brilliant solution for a great vacation in a beautiful country. If you don't need the size of the Landcruiser, go for the Rav4 - a 4WD in Iceland is necessary to visit some of the most beautiful locations.
We had a wonderful and stress-free experience with Camping Iceland. Excellent customer service and communication. Everything was just as described and the roofbox and car had everything we needed and more! It gave us the flexibility of traveling the country at our own pace, with the comfort of having everything we needed right with us. Can't wait for our next trip!
Extremely professional and easy to deal with, Camping Iceland provided us with the means to have a stress free and satisfying camping experience around Iceland.
They provided us with everything you need, as well as extremely helpful and fast communication prior to our trip, answering any questions we had.
I would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting to camp around Iceland.
