As anyone looking to rent a camper van in Iceland will know, there are a lot of companies to rent from. During our search for our trip in August/September 2017 we must have looked at every company there is but we liked the reviews Grand Iceland had received and decided they were our pick. It turned out to be a great pick. The van was ready to go at the agreed upon time. Gummi sat down with us to go over all of the details of the transaction and also was more than happy to give us tons of information about the country. Things from rules of the road, things to be mindful of when on the road, great tips on where some off-the-beat places to stop are, local insight into different parts of the country, road conditions, travel apps to use, maps, and more. After that we took a quick tour of the van to get a quick run through of how everything operated and then we were off. We were in our van for 12 nights and there were many nights we were happy we were in a camper versus a tent because there were some pretty nasty nights for weather. Everything on the van worked perfectly. Having wifi was an amazing feature. The internal heater worked great and was definitely a huge plus to have. The portable cook top worked great, the fridge was just the right size and having running water for dishes and teeth brushing was great. All you need is a bathroom and a shower. Probably the biggest takeaway we had was just how durable of a vehicle you need on many of the roads. If you stick mainly to the Ring Road you'll spend most of your time on nicely paved roads and when there is gravel they are usually decent. However, when we got on to secondary highways (not F-roads) and especially in the Westfjords we found ourselves on some pretty bumpy, potholed, rocky roads. Our biggest fear was a breakdown or a blown tire but the van held up beautifully as these roads are not kind to vehicles. Gummi was good with communication and in general is a pretty easy going guy. You can't go wrong with Grand Iceland.

The camper was perfect for what we wanted to do: flexibility to drive around wonderful Iceland at our own pace, and being able to bunker down at camping sites with the best vistas. The heater was crucial to keep us warm at nights and the fridge gave us the chance to economize by keeping our groceries chilled. But above all, the Grand Iceland team came through big time when we drove on a road we should not have been on. One flat tire later, we were stuck in a pretty bad state. We were back on the road in less than 3 hours despite being quite the distance away from Reyjavik, thanks to the quick action by GI. Our many thanks to them and we definitely will be returning to them when we come back.
