Yes, only if you rent a specific 4x4 camper that are allowed to go on these highland roads. In Iceland, these tough terrain areas are marked with an “F” because they are F-roads; indicating that only 4x4 vehicles are allowed.
We are extremely picky on who we partner up with for additional services. We’ve been lucky to continue working with an extremely reliable 24 hour service. If for any reason you have an accident of your vehicle does not start, please contact the service and us in order to provide you with a relief vehicle.
Depending on where you travel, you’ll see more or less ice. During the warmer months only the glaciers are still icy. However, you must always be on the lookout and expect icy conditions (especially from October through May), and lost animals wandering the roadside, winds that pick up suddenly, flat tires, road debris and cold weather in general.
Iceland is absolutely gorgeous during the winter. However, your campervan or motorhome will need to be outfitted with special studded tires during the months of October through May. This is for your safety since many of the nature roads will have ice or snow still on them throughout this period.
Iceland has great drinking water that comes straight from glacier sources. Drink as much as you can, and make sure to take bottles or containers with you on your trip. Stay hydrated!
It’s no secret that during the Spring and Summer seasons, wildlife come alive! They tend to wander off into the roadside or wooded areas so just be vigilant and drive safely. Usually there are posted signs indicating what type of wildlife is nearby. Some “usual suspects” that you will encounter are minks, foxes, mice and reindeer (but not as common.) As long as you maintain a respectful distance, you should be fine! And don’t feed any animal!
Most, if not all of our vehicles are new and stocked with the most advanced heating equipment in the market. We can assure that you will be very comfortable and warm while resting. A tip though, is to make sure you close all windows and doors beforehand while the heating is running to trap the warmness in. Sleep tight!
Iceland has a wide scope of different types of supermarkets, local stores and shops that carry most of what you are used to having in your native country. There are two well known chains that carry tons of camping equipment where you can find pieces that you might need for your trip. Their names are Kronan and Costco & Bonus. So no need to bring unnecessary items from home.
As anywhere else, Iceland has its peak seasons for travelers. Depending on the season some make or models may not be available. Try and book as much as you can in advance in order to curtail lowering your full options of products that we have to offer.

We always recommend you park your vehicle in a registered campsite when you want to rest overnight. Some of these campsites even have showers and pools.
