Iceland is one of the most desolate yet naturally stunning countries in Europe, which only adds to its irresistible charm. This island nation is home to an incredible array of natural attractions, including massive live volcanoes, stunning glaciers, magnificent lakes and majestic highlands. From the impeccable beauty of the world-famous Blue Lagoon, to the roar of Dettifoss Waterfall, Iceland and its natural landscape is an alluring vacation destination.
With no train network covering Iceland, travelling via a self-contained van is arguably the cheapest and most convenient mode of transportation available. The main road circumnavigating the country is Route 1, which is kept free of snow year-round. Many of the natural attractions are flanked by a campsite or two, so motorhomes always have a place to rest.
Campervan hire drives in Iceland
located in the northeastern region of Iceland, the volcanic-formed lake of Myvatn is a spectacular part of the country. For bird-watching enthusiasts, this area is an absolute must, as dozens of wetland bird species call Myvatn home. However, sites like Hverfjall Crater and Lofthellir Lava Cave also lure travellers. Camping ground Myvatn is very comfortable for your camper needs, and Vogahraun Guesthouse has a campsite almost on the lakeshore.
drive an hour from Reykjavik, along the southern coastline, and you will reach the aptly named Golden Circle. Visitors can explore the amazing scenery of the World Heritage listed Thingvellir National Park, including Oxararfoss Waterfall. Thingvellir Camping Ground is available, but nearby lays the geothermal hotspot of Geysir and its camping area too.
Skaftafell National Park:
even the drive to Skaftafell NP is magnificent, as motorhomes must pass through not only a breathtaking glacier, but also great views of the nearby coast. Guests can stay at Skaftafell Camping Site. Another 45 minutes east along Route 1, and motorists will find Lambhus – Cottages and Camping site. Inside rests Svartifoss waterfall and one of the largest glaciers in Europe.
What to see and do
Iceland’s tectonically-active landscape lends itself to unique, outdoor holidays. There is a long list of things to see and do while vacationing here. Most tourists will pass through Reykjavik, and spend a day sightseeing the city. The main sites include Reykjavik’s national museums, the botanical gardens and rainbow-tainted neighborhoods. Not far from the capital is Þingvellir National Park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the mesmerizing Blue Lagoon.
Whale watching outside the northern Iceland town of Husavik is highly recommended, and the nearby lake region of Myvatn is an eerie yet alluring landscape that provides plenty of outdoor entertainment for visitors. In Iceland’s southeast, Jokulsar Lagoon is a glacial lake that is sprinkled with fresh icebergs year round. The Golden Falls, which is only an hour outside Reykjavik, is the most beautiful waterfall in the country, and great for self-drives.
