Iceland has everything but only a small amount of ice

For those after some excitement and outdoor time, Iceland is the location for you. This land is home to volcanoes, waterfalls, geysers, glaciers and many other astounding sites. Ironically, the country is only made up of about 10% ice and considering how close it is to the Arctic Circle, the climate is somewhat mild.

The official language here is Icelandic, which bears some similarities to the 13th Century Norse people. There’s no need to fret though, as the majority of the inhabitants speak English too. There are even some Scandinavian, French and Spanish speakers out there.

Another similarity to Scandinavia that Iceland has is that it can be expensive. This makes motorhome hire a cost effective choice if you want to visit. It is also a great option if you plan on travelling around.

Perhaps the best advice we can offer if you are thinking about a motorhome holiday in Iceland is to stay overnight in one of the very well equipped camping sites. They are typically found near areas of interest, meaning that you won’t have to trek far to find them. Opportunities to spend nights in the farmer’s fields are there, but that’s a choice for you to make.

It is a good idea to decide early what sights you want to see so you can plot a route. You can then decide which camp sites to stay. This will save you running the risk of missing out. Remember you will likely see all kinds of other attractions whilst you are travelling so it is good to have a little bit of flexibility in your schedule.
