Hire a Motorhome in Iceland
Once again Iceland has proven to be the safest place in the world to enjoy a motor home holiday.
Iceland has maintained its status of being named the Most Peaceful Country in the World according to the Institute for Economics and Peace in its recently published Global Peace Index.
Situated in the North Atlantic, between Europe and North America, Iceland boasts a good international airport (Keflavik – 40km from Reykjavik). Keflavik hosts flights from the USA, Canada, UK, Norway and Germany. So getting there is not a problem.
Although cold in the winter, Iceland can surprise you with its long days in the summer, and is an ideal destination to hire a motorhome for your holiday. The beauty of hiring a camper van in Iceland is that you can travel where and when you want. If you fancy staying another night at a particular location, then there is nothing to stop you.
There are many interesting and unusual sites to see, including active volcanoes, rugged coastlines, and the enchanting city of Reykjavik, with its Nordic churches and simple Icelandic Parliament building. You can take a trip to the Blue Lagoon, a popular outdoor pool and health centre, and bathe in the boiling, steamy sulphurous waters. It is a very invigorating experience to feel your body immersed in the hot steamy water, with your head freezing in the cool air. The Blue Lagoon is situated about 39Km from Reykjavik. When we say popular we mean popular so plan your trip in advance.
If you want to get away from the popular tourist attractions, Iceland offers trips to the more exposed areas of the island including the Laugavegur hiking trail or you can take a journey up to the volcanic craters formed by the 2010 Eyjafjallajökull volcanic eruption, famous for the many days of travel impact, caused by the large cloud of volcanic ash.
Additionally you can visit the many black sand beaches, glacial lagoons and exploding geysers – or visit Húsavík – allegedly one of the best whale watching sites in the world, during the summer months.
The 3 national parks - Þingvellir National Park, Vatnajökull National Park and Snæfellsjökull National Park offer a multitude of geographical wonders including the highest mountain in Iceland, Hvannadalshnúkur, the largest glacier in Iceland, Vatnajökull, and the largest waterfall in Europe (volume discharge), Dettifoss.
