Is the gas cylinder full when I pick up my travel trailer?

It is the renter’s responsibility to fill the gas cylinder. Therefore, you get the gas cylinder just the same as the last renter returned it.

Is it difficult to camp the trailer tent?

No, not at all. It is an easy two person job and can be done in about 30 seconds. With the instructions by your side it won’t be a problem.

Why does everyone's name end in "son" in Iceland?

An Icelandic tradition. One has a first name and the last name is one's father's name. E.g. if someone is named Jón and his father is named Sigurður, Jón's name would be Jón Sigurðsson (Jón, son of Sigurður). Same goes for women (Helga Jónsdóttir = Helga, daughter of Jón).

Can I pick up my travel trailer the day before pickup?

If you want to get the trailer a day before you will have to pay for that one night. Same goes if you want to keep it longer. Please note that this is only allowed if the trailer is available.

If I don't find a camping site before dark, can I camp my trailer anywhere?

You can if you get the permission of the landowner. It is not allowed in national parks. You will have to be careful not to damage the nature and not to drive off road. This is in accordance with the Icelandic laws about nature conservation number 44/1999.

What do I do if I get lost in an Icelandic forest?

Stand up.

Do I have to use extension mirrors?

Yes you do and the police will be happy to give you a fine if you don't.

Do you have a car for rent?

No. We only rent caravans, trailer tents and pop-up campers.

Can youreallydrink water straight from the tap?

Yes, the Icelandic water is crystal clear and can be drunk straight from the tap. You can also drink from rivers, waterfalls and lakes (not the ones that come from melting glaciers tough).

Are pets allowed in the trailers?

Sadly, no.

Is it allowed to smoke in the trailers?

Do you Icelanders really believe in elves and trolls?

No, most of us don't. Sorry to disappoint.
