COVID-19 Guide to Visiting Iceland

You want to come to Iceland for a vacation during these strange times. We understand completely. We even think you might be surprised how easy, diverse, and affordable it is. Here’s how you do it.

Before arrival:

  1. Confirm that your country is on the #approved list.
  2. Book your flight/s. Everything is available in Iceland, so start with flights.
  3. Book your camper. #Offers listed here.
  4. Book a quarantine Hotel/Cottage from full list, or #recommended list.
  5. 72 hours before departure, fill out the pre-registration form.

Once in Iceland:

  1. Take the first COVID-19 test at the airport.
  2. CampEasy picks you up at the airport.
  3. Stay one night in Keflavík, or pick up your camper right away.
  4. Drive to your selected accommodation and stay for 5 days during the quarantine.
  5. Take the second test after the 5 days in quarantine.
  6. Explore the untouched nature of Iceland as long as you like.
  7. Drop off the camper, and we drop you off at the airport.

Bonus:

  1. If you rent for 8+ days, get the camper for FREE during the 5 days of quarantine.
  2. The Hotel/Cottage takes care of food deliveries during your stay.

Quarantine Made Fun

The quarantine for your first five days can be a lot of fun. You are allowed to take your camper/rental car out for excursions and explorations. There are many cottages/cabins that have hot tubs, and many of them rest near excellent hiking trails or points of interest (more on that below). There are also hotels that offer special quarantine offers now, with food and entertainment provided throughout your stay. Quarantine as a visitor in Iceland does not mean staying at a hospital or some medical hotel/institution. If you research the regions in Iceland, you’ll quickly find plenty of points of interest to enjoy during those 5 days.

The diversity and beauty of Iceland’s nature are known to many. Less known is the truly diverse, creative, and appealing accommodation spread around Iceland. We recommend you choose the porta-potty (travel toilet) in step 2 in the booking process if you intend to drive more than 3-4 hours to reach your quarantine accommodation, as you are not allowed to stop and use bathrooms or other facilities along the way. We believe anyone can find something to their liking on the “Full List” below, but to aid in this search, we have put together a small recommended list, filtered from the 390 hotels/guesthouses/cottages that are quarantine ready.

Worry-Free Bookings

Cancellation Protection – No Time Limit
There is no time limit on our current cancellation policy. Flights have been known to cancel with only hours to spare, and we will not hold on to your money if you decide to cancel. That includes issues with flights, family, and other extenuating circumstances.

The COVID19 Protection
Refunds on remaining days for early returns. If you are tested positive mid-trip and must isolate, we pay back the remaining days. If we cannot imagine the COVID-19 case here and now, we still probably have you covered.

Discount in Hand
If you book with us while we offer these exceptional discounts, you keep that highly discounted price. That is regardless of changes in Iceland’s policy on quarantine, our price adjustments, or if you need to reschedule/freeze your booking.

Reschedule at will
Did you make a bargain using one of our special offers? Don’t want to give it up just because some airlines messed up your immediate plans? Move it to any date of your choosing, at no additional cost.

Freeze your booking
Can’t make it, and don’t have new dates yet? Hold on to that booking and make your choice later. You always have the free cancellation to lean back on if nothing opens up.

CampEasy During COVID-19

Proven Trustworthy – Money back guarantee
Taking a few minutes and reading feedback online demonstrates our trustworthiness, as multiple parties have written extensively about our excellent refund, and cancellation policy from day one of the pandemic. No vouchers, or anything of the sort, unless asked for.

Sterilizing our Campers
We have taken extensive measures to sterilize our campers before each rental. Two passes on any surface presumed to be touched more than once, new routines to guarantee equipment goes through the cleaning process regardless of how it appears. No COVID-19 case can be traced to our campers.

An Empty Island

An Empty Island

Iceland is a sparsely populated island and has long allured travelers with its untouched nature. We at CampEasy travel much around the country, and by avoiding the most commercial destinations, we haven’t found the island crowded by any means. However, there’s always the occasional fellow wanderer passing by during the low season, and you can find some crowds at the most popular destinations at peak season. Not anymore. The island is empty. If you are looking to explore or photograph Icelands’ most appealing aspect, nature, you have a unique opportunity right now.
