The Travel Blogger’s Guide to Iceland

Not so long ago, Iceland was a relatively unheard of destination, with only the few most extreme adventurers choosing to travel there. Finding a guide to Iceland would have been a real challenge.

These days, it’s one of the world’s most popular destinations, and there are so many Iceland travel guides out there that it’s hard to know where to start. It’s a good problem to have, and it’s only happened because Iceland is one unbelievably epic destination to visit, so there’s always a lot to say when you come back from a trip there! Iceland is one of my favourite destinations and whenever anyone asks me for a weekend break suggestion I’ll always tell them Reykjavik, Iceland’s capital.

If you’re planning a trip to Iceland, especially a first-time trip, it can be hard to sift through all of the information out there to find the blog posts and articles that will really help you.

That’s why I created The Travel Blogger’s Guide to Iceland, which rounds up all of my favourite blog posts on this destination so that you have everything you need to plan your trip to Iceland!

Do you have any more tips to add to this guide to Iceland?

Saturday 6th of July 2019

I just returned from 5 days in Iceland (2-1/2 day more than necessary). The scenery is beautiful, but has a certain sameness wherever you go. There are a few unimpressive geysers, some thundering waterfalls, and the sunsets are impressive (at about 12:15 AM local time). I chose the sunsets. One must chose because sunrise follows sunsets by 2-12 hours. I couldn't stay up for both.

Visiting Iceland is a great deal like blue-ocean sailing: you are always, wet, always cold, moving slowly and at great expense. Can't overemphasize the expense part: Tokyo is cheaper. Some of the much heralded hotel spas will disappoint you. Service is insipid; and there is everywhere the lingering odor of sulfur.

Been there (and nearly everywhere else). I recommend nearly everywhere else, first, then Iceland. Maybe next year, Greenland.

Safety Equipment

Safety always comes first, so we include a fire extinguisher and first aid kit in all camper rentals.

Luggage space is valuable, so you can just rent one of our (black) beach towels for your entire trip. Check out our higher-quality Happy Campers towels for purchase at the office as well.

The Super Collision Damage Waiver covers the same things as the CDW, but lowers the deductible from €2,500 (~$3,000) to €600 (~$700)

Sand & Ash Insurance

This insurance covers you in case of damage from ash and sand. Although rare, it is actually more common than most people realize and requires expensive repairs. Sandstorms are common in the highlands, and we live on an active volcanic island where anything can happen.

Theft Insurance

Protects you from liability in case the van or other included items get stolen. This only covers Happy Campers rental items, not personal items.

Scratch & Dent Insurance

Don’t worry about smaller scratches or dents (less than 3 cm) by getting the S&D insurance. Zero (0) deductible on this type of damage will give you that peace-of-mind.

Adblue is used to clean up diesel emissions and we take that seriously. We guarantee that your van is stocked with Adblue for your trip.

extra

Tire Insurance

If you damage a tire so that it needs to be replaced, you are not responsible for the cost. Just change to the spare tire, call our service phone, and we will guide you through the process of getting a new tire and you won’t pay anything.

Clothesline

Don’t let damp clothing and towels ruin your camping experience. This lightweight, foldable clothesline is the perfect solution for quickly drying your damp laundry.
