We drove the Ring Road in a Grand Iceland camper van this summer. It was a fantastic experience. The staff was very helpful and informative. The van seemed small at first, but it was actually very comfortable to live and sleep in the van for a week. Plus, it was easy to drive and park the van, as it was not oversized. A camper van is definitely the way to tour Iceland, and I highly reccommend Grand Iceland.

I had 16 people in Iceland to celebrate my 50th birthday. I booked with Gummi (the owner) at Grand Iceland, the Mercedes Minibus for 20 passengers. We had an incredible time! (1) Gummi was VERY helpful in planning our itinerary, and he even booked certain attractions for us (2) for our day long trips, he took care of finding awesome, local restaurants - he didn't fail us once! (3) he was on time, every step of the way (4) he also drove us, was very knowledgeable (5) he allowed us to have fun on the bus, music, BEvERages, etc. My entire group was very grateful to Gummi for making our visit to Iceland so amazing. Thank you Gummi!

It was a cold but fantastic journey. The round trip with the land rover defender was a long wish of the family. At the beginning of May we thought we could experience the spring on Iceland, unfortunately it rained again and again. Experiencing 4 seasons in one hour is something special. Still, the trip has been worth it. The nature is fantastic and the inhabitants very friendly. We recommend small personal hotels instead of larger hotel chains.

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.

Nous avons loué à la dernière minute un petit Ford Transit. Sans en avoir fait avant, le concept est juste genial et s'adapte parfaitement à la visite de l'Islande. Bjarni a fait tout son possible pour notre confort : il est venu nous déposer la voiture à l'aéroport (se débrouillant pour rentrer...) ; nous a même proposé de nous y redéposer à 3h du matin pour le départ ; nous a laissé quelques heures de plus profiter de notre road trip ; bref, épaté par sa gentillesse et le soin apporté à ses propres véhicules. Le petit Ford s'avère avoir tout le petit confort : plaque campingaz ; petit frigo (qui fonctionne vraiment) ; chauffage le soir dans l'habitacle ; petit évier et bidon de 16L + pompe électrique. ... Honnêtement, le road trip dans cette auto ; les arrêts au milieu de nulle part et les soirées BBQ à la lumière des nuits islandaises resteront pour nous un souvenir incroyable. Alors on ne peut que chaudement recommander pour, à notre manière, remercier GI... Bon Trip

Renting from Grand Iceland was one of the best parts of our trip. The whole experience was incredibly easy and I always felt taken care of. Both Dora and Gummi went out of their way to make sure I had all the info I needed, and were so hospitable even in the ride(s) to and from the airport, and also in taking the time to highlight some good places to visit. They answered emails very quickly. I felt truly welcomed. The van itself was in great shape and very easy to drive. Our van had both a refrigerator and sink, which made camping for the entire 14 days easy. It also had a heater that made sleeping on those colder nights enjoyable. It's size was perfect for sleeping two, camping, parking and fuel economy. Really though, the van itself although perfect, pales in comparison to the amazing customer service, attentiveness, and sincere interest that we were happy and taken care of. Thank you Gummi + Dora for a great trip to your beautiful home!

I really enjoyed Grand Iceland's hospitality and communication! Their camper van was great and Gummi and the staff were very nice. They picked us up in KEF and drove us to the car really early in the morning. They gave us information about everything and were very kind and helpful. We will definitely rent from them again. Thank you so much for your hospitality! You were very kind.

Great car, and Gummi was very kind and communicated all I would need. He picked me up in KEF and drove me to their rental location, showed me the car and how to use it, answered all my questions. I will definitely consider using them on my next trip back...though I may need 4x4 next time to get more into the wilderness! ;) I will be recommending to friends going out though as the price was great in comparison to other rentals. Thanks for a wonderful experience on my first time to Iceland!
