Rent the Volkswagen Transporter 4x4 Campervan and explore Iceland the way you like! If you plan to visit Iceland on a budget but still enjoy the best that the country provides, the VW Transporter is the right campervan for you.
The Volkswagen Transporter is by far the most popular medium-sized VW campervan in our fleet. It can seat and sleep up to 3 people comfortably. The sleeping area is installed with a Webasto heating system, ensuring that you will have a nice sleep during the night. The car boot can carry a maximum of 2 big and 1 small suitcase, and it is perfect for a couple or group of 3 friends camping together in Iceland.
With its 4x4 capabilities and powerful engine, the Transporter Campervan can conquer the rough terrain, bumpy gravel roads, and the F-roads (mountain roads) in the Icelandic Highlands. The camper features an Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) system, which takes the safeness of your Iceland road trip to another level. Whether you plan to visit the Highlands in summer, travel the Ring Road or visit the remote fjords, the 4x4 Transporter will always be the best campervan for your group.
The Volkswagen Transporter has an automatic transmission and it runs on diesel. It comes equipped with a touchscreen, Bluetooth, USB/AUX connectors, A/C and a ventilation system. There are 3 curtains inserted with the door so you can always have a good sleep, even when you are under the midnight sun in the summer.

Camper van rentals like the Volkswagen Transporter Camper are versatile, which makes them one of the greatest options for self-drive tours or road trips in Iceland. While Iceland is known for its intense, raw, and beautiful scenery, it’s also notorious for fast-changing weather and long stretches of road between the next lodge or hotel. Renting a Volkswagen Transporter allows you to carry your hotel with you, but also be able to move from place to place at your own pace! It’s a highly fuel-efficient, durable, and reliable car, which is essential when traveling in Iceland. Check the camper details below:
Your convenience, comfort, and safety are our main priorities here at Lava Car Rental. We want you to enjoy and create unforgettable memories, as well as fully explore everything that Iceland is famous for. Road tripping through Iceland in a Volkswagen camper is one of the most unique ways to travel, witness beautiful scenery and wildlife, and create memories with your travel buddies. No need to overpack - we’ve done the heavy lifting for you! When renting a Volkswagen Transporter, it comes all equipped.
The Volkswagen 4x4 Transporter campervan is ideal for travelling around Iceland from late May to early September, which is Iceland's spring and summer seasons. Thanks to the Transporter's 4x4 capability, you can drive on all paved, gravel and mountain roads (F-roads) with no stress.
If you are visiting Iceland from late September to early May (the autumn or winter season in Iceland), the VW Transporter is also a good option. You can drive it on the icy, snowy roads and under the unpredictable and everchanging Icelandic winter weather. Please note that only a LIMITED number of campsites are open during winter, most of them only available during summertime.
Considering the possibility of experiencing extreme weather (heavy snow/ storm/ heavy winds), it is not recommended to camp with a van during autumn and winter in Iceland. We recommend you rent a 4x4 SUV vehicle and stay in hostels or hotels if you are visiting Iceland in winter.
The Volkswagen 4x4 Transporter campervan can safely take you to all the attractions around Iceland. You can visit the Golden Circle, the waterfalls and black sand beaches along the South Coast, the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon, the Snaefellsnes peninsula, the North of Iceland or even the less-populated Eastfjords and Westfjords. You can also go to the Icelandic Highlands with your VW Transporter when the F-roads are open in the summer.
Please note that you will need to drive across rivers to visit the Icelandic Highlands area (including Landmannalaugar and Thorsmork). We ONLY recommend visiting the site with the rental car to drivers with experience in river crossing. No insurance can cover the damage cost if you break the car's engine or chassis while crossing rivers.
Located in the northern region of the island, the Diamond Circle is a slight detour off the Ring Road and features some of the most beautiful waterfalls, canyons, and historic landmarks of Iceland. It also connects to the most charming coastal town which happens to be the whale-watching capital of Iceland.
Located in the southeast region of Iceland, Jökulsárlón is one of the most scenic glacier lakes and beaches in the country. Drive along with the coastline and capture photos of majestic glaciers and ice formations that line the beaches and waters. If you’re lucky, you might even be able to see some seals!
Explore the best of the highlands in Iceland: Landmannalaugar or Kerlingarfjöll. Discover the amazing landscapes, enjoy a hike or take a bath in the natural hot springs. Those attractions are only accessible in summer and with a 4WD vehicle.
