Campervan Rental Reykjavik

Reykjavík is the capital of Iceland and it’s the country's largest and most populated city. It’s combined by 6 different municipalities, Kópavogur, Hafnafjörður, Garðabær, Mosfellsbær, and Seltjarnarnes. The Icelandic capital  is popular for its cozy downtown, walkways, shops and the famous 'Harpa’, one of Reykjavík's most striking landmarks. While in town, we suggest parking your Reykjavikcamper rental and getting the city card, which offers free entry to many museums and galleries, all swimming pools in Reykjavík, and free unlimited travel by bus within the capital area.

Getting to Reykjavik

The roads in Iceland are very simple to drive in with a RV rental. Depending on where you are located, most roads lead straight to Reykjavík. Þjóðvegur 1 or Route 1 is Iceland's most driven road since it covers all the main places. Even though Reykjavík is Iceland's biggest city, it doesn't have its own international airport. If you're planning to fly to Reykjavík, you will be landing at Kefllavík international airport, which is about an hour away (50 km) from Reykjavík. As of today, over 25 airlines operate flights to Iceland. Typical flight times are 3-4 hours from Europe and 5-6 hours from the U.S.

The best time to rent a RV in Reykjavik

Weather graph for average temperatures in Reykjavik
Average temperatures in Reykjavik per month

Located in the southwestern coast, Reykjavík is the largest city and capital of Iceland. It’s characterized by extremes of day and night length over the course of the year.

The climate of Reykjavik is subpolar oceanic, with cold winters and very cool summers. July and August are the warmest months of the year, fluctuating between 10 and 15 °C (50 and 59 °F), rarely exceeding 20 °C (68 °F) and January and February the coldest, where temperatures very rarely drop below −15 °C (5 °F). Wind chill can make apparent temperatures feel even lower, despite this, don't avoid Iceland in winter – but pack proper thermal gear.

Midnight sun and warmer weather make summer the best season to rent a RV and visit Iceland. Hikers will want to consider July and August as the best time to visit Iceland, whereas February, March, September and October are typically the best time to visit one of Iceland’s gems, the Northern Lights. 

Reykjavik is dynamic, clean and modern. Skyscrapers or the classic European town with a historical city center are not going to be found here. It’s mostly full of leisure activities, small pleasures, and there are many things to do with a RV rental depending on how you decide to travel.
