We are very happy to finally have added our own campers to our fleet! Our campers are 2016 model Dacia Dokkers with custom built interiors, ideal for 2 people traveling together.
The campers are equipped with all you need for a comfortable road trip such as a mattress, gas stove, dishes, cutlery, pot, pan and water container (all included in price). There are curtains in the campers to help with Iceland's midnight sun.
The campers also have stand alone heaters which are connected to the diesel fuel tank. There is no cooler/refrigerator but the nights in Iceland can be pretty cold which might help with that. So, you only need to bring your sleeping bag and you are good to go.
Unfortunately, the campers are NOT suitable for driving on F-roads in the highlands of Iceland.
Check out the photos of our new beds on wheels.
The inside is a lounge during stops and evenings:
Complete with a kitchen:
When you are ready to go to bed you make this happen:
Then you pack up the car and continue your travels in Iceland. Pretty sweet huh?
No need to book a hotel, just find a camping site, park and relax. We suggest you consider buying the camping card and check out their list of campsites all around the country.
You can rent bedding for 2 people for 75 EUR. The bedding includes a sheet, 2 duvets and 2 pillows. Please note that the bedding will have to be picked up in our Reykjavik office.
We also sell disposable cylinder propane gas (250gr) for 20 EUR.
Renting the campers in winter – what you need to know!
Are the campers ok for winter driving?
You should be able to drive our campers anywhere you want during winter except if the weather is bad, such as a snowstorm or a lot of ice on the roads. Our cars all have winter tires and are equipped for normal winter circumstances in Iceland. That being said, it is better to have a 4x4 car if the weather is bad and the campers are not 4x4 cars. This means that you might have to change your plans if the weather is bad in the area you plan to travel to.
Will I be warm?
There is a stand alone heater in the car that is connected to the diesel fuel tank. This heater should keep you plenty warm during cold winter nights in combination with your sleeping bag or bedding.
Where to camp during winter?
Unfortunately, most campsites close during the winter months but Visit Iceland has a list of campsites that are open all year.
There are regulations on where you can camp outside of the campsites, this being the biggest rule: It is illegal to spend the night in tent trailers, tent campers, caravans, camper vans or similar outside organised campsites or urban areas unless the land owner or rightholder has given their permission. For further information on where to camp please read the guidelines from Icelandic authorities.
