Campgrounds in Iceland

As we said in other posts, camping in Iceland is a great idea as it allows you to get in touch with the wildest nature of the country. On our 18 day route with our SadCars Campervan, we were able to enjoy several campsites along the way.

REYKJAVIK CAMPSITE:

Just 3 miles from the city center, this camp offers ample space for caravans and tents, as well as private cabins. It has a shared kitchen with all comforts and showers and free Wi-Fi. It is located next to Reykjavik’s best known swimming pool where you can go to enjoy the water.

SKJOL CAMPING:

A camping in “the middle of nowhere” as its website says, but at the same time in a strategic point to visit the Golden Triangle, since it is only 5 minutes away from the Park of the Geysers and less than an hour away from the beautiful Thingvellir National Park, so it is perfect to do base for a few days.
In addition to wifi and comfortable showers, it has a hostel with shared and private rooms, and a restaurant serving a delicious pizza, among other dishes.
The view from its two hectares campground is more than privileged.

GESTHÚS SELFOSS:

Very close to Gulfoss, Skogar and Vik, this campsite serves as a perfect base for touring the south of Iceland. It has a large park for caravans and tents, and a comfortable kitchen and living room open 24 hours. They serve breakfast and have 22 private bungalows that allow the use of jacuzzis installed on the deck of the camp. It is a family-run camp so you feel the warmth of the welcome. Free WIFI.

EGILSSTADIR CAMPING:

This campsite is located in a beautiful area of Iceland and is ideal to make base for visiting the east fjords and the lake of Egilsstadir, where you can find the largest forest of Iceland. It has ample wooded space for tents and caravans, wifi both inside and outside, games for children, washing machines and dryers, and showers and outdoor grills for cooking. It is attended wonderfully by two Icelandic girls.
