Where to stay in Iceland

Hotels

Reykjavík offers a good choice of hotels, from budget to five-star. All tourism businesses that maintain high standards carry a Vakinn logo – a white windmill on a yellow background.

Elsewhere, the choice is more limited but entrepreneurial homeowners do advertise their homes on an online marketplace.

Camping

There are nearly 170 registered camping sites dotted across Iceland, usually open from the beginning of June until late August or mid-September.

Apart from designated camping sites, you can also camp on cultivated land provided that you have successfully sought permission from the owners. But in the highlands, you can camp anywhere you like on the condition that you have hiked (not driven) to the area you intend to pitch up a tent.
