FAQ About Campervans in Iceland

What do we call a campervan?

A campervan or also called a camper is a vehicle that provides both transport and accommodation.

Why rent a camper in Iceland?

Renting a camper in Iceland is perfect for adventurous travelers. It gives you the freedom to decide where to spend the night and it allows you more flexibility regarding your road trip schedule.

Finally, it can also be a comfortable alternative for camping lovers who want to be flexible and sleep in a warm environment at night.

The minimum age is 18 years old for a standard campervan and 21 years old for 4x4 campervans for VW Transporter & VW Crafter models. 

Do I need a special license to rent a campervan in Iceland?

All campers include unlimited mileage, CDW insurance & Theft Protection, and all the equipment needed for your adventure in Iceland: bed with mattress, sleeping bags, pillows, bed linen, blanket, electric cooler, gas stove, water tank, pots and pans, cutlery, dishwashing equipment, foldable table and chairs.

How many days do you recommend to live a complete campervan trip in Iceland?

Usually, it takes 7 days to travel around the Ring Road and make the full trip around Iceland. If you wish to take your time or explore other regions like the Westfjords or the Highlands, we would definitely recommend traveling for 10 days.

Can you sleep anywhere in a camper in Iceland?

No. Wild camping is legal in Iceland only in tents. With a campervan, you need to spend the night in campsites. 

Since 2016, it is also forbidden by law to park campers outside of local campsites at night. So we recommend you camping at local campsites. You do not need to book them in advance. You just show up. 

Do I have a heating system during the night?

Yes, all campers include a Webasto heating system that warms up the vehicle day and night.

Can we travel in a camper with kids?

Yes, you can travel in a camper with your kids. We offer the optionS to add a car seat and booster in the options.

Can I go to the Highlands with a camper?

Not all campers can go to the Highlands but our VW Transporter Camper Van & VW Crafter Camper Van can. Those vehicles are 4x4 campervans. Therefore, you can go on F-roads during summer when the road and weather conditions allow.

How does it work for toilets and showers while traveling with a camper in Iceland?

Campervans do not include a shower and toilet in the vehicle. We recommend using restrooms and bathrooms at local campsites and swimming pools available all over the country. 

Swimming pools opens usually every day until late and are cheap to go. Going to local swimming pools is a relaxing way to end a full day of traveling: you can relax in a hot tub, use the steam bath, etc. During the day, you can use restrooms in gas stations, travel information centers, and some shops.

What is the cancellation policy?

You can change or cancel your booking up to 48 hours before the camper pick up. You simply need to send us an email at info@lavacarrental.is to request it.

While it is more common to rent a camper in summer, you can rent a camper to travel in winter in Iceland as well. All our campers are equipped with a Webasto heating system and we provide warm sleeping bags with the rental. Make sure to dress warmly and to check the list of campsites open during winter in Iceland. You can find the list on this Map.

Do I have to clean the camper before returning?

No, you simply need to take out the trash. Lava Car Rental takes care of the rest.
