Important Information for 2021 travellers

Welcome to a special page during special times. We aim to keep the page updated to provide the newest information on how to travel to and from Iceland in 2021. 

Are you a traveler on your way to iceland

The Minister of Health has decided, in keeping with the recommendation of the Chief Epidemiologist, to retain the current measures to contain the spread of infections at the borders until 1 July. After that time, the measures will be relaxed by cease the screening of those who present a certificate of vaccination or prior infection with COVID-19. Additionally, children will no longer be screened for COVID-19 upon arrival in Iceland.

The newest information can be found on the governmental page. 

 

The best way to travel

In a Camper or Motor Home you are able to avoid crowds. The Icelandic government has issued rules how to travel when you are in Iceland.  We are happy about our governments decision to keep all travelers save. 

Camp Grounds are open

The campgrounds opened early this year due to the fact that many Icelanders decided to stay in Iceland this year. The government issued rules that apply to tourism this year.  

Certificates regarding previous COVID-19 infection that are accepted at the border in Iceland from 10 December 2020

Cook yourself & save money

One of the great things about a camper is that you can cook yourself. You can go shopping in the local stores and profit from far better rates then going to a Restaurant. 

Iceland is safe and Quarantine needed

All passengers that arrive in Iceland have to undergo a COVID-19 test or to go for a 14-day quarantine. If you choose the test you only need to go to quarantine for 4-6 days (possible in the Motor Home). After that you are tested again. The benefit of knowing that you are COIVID-19 free and you are entering a safe country brings a peace to our minds. 

Hygiene standard

Our vehicles are rented out 13 days average to 5 -8 customers per year. In a Hotel the guest change daily or 75 – 104 times during the same period. Needless to say a camper is a great way to travel.
