Iceland Rent camping equipment





Website & Order


How long in advance should I book the equipment?
It is best that you place your order with 48 hours notice, but if it is on short notice you can contact us through email or by just coming to our office during opening hours.
What is your privacy policy?
Any personal information you give us (name, address, email…) will never be given to anyone. We do not share it, sell it or use it for any other purposes than contacting you about your order.
How can I be sure that the online payment is secure?
Our website uses TLS 1.2 and our e-commerce platform is PCI Compliant (PCI DSS).
All credit card information is processed by Valitor and we never receive access to them.
What exchange rate do you use?
Our system only processes one currency, euros(EUR).
So prices indicated in dollars(USD) or Icelandic króna (ISK) are automatically updated and reflect the current exchange rate.
Are rental prices on the website and at the office the same?

Yes, they are, and always will be the same.
There is no price difference between ordering on the website or in person.

Can I rent gear for more than 21 days?
Yes, and we will even give you any extra days after the first 21 days for FREE.
Just send us an email after you have placed your order, indicating that you would like to use the gear for longer. 
Do you accept bookings for groups?

We consider as a group, a booking that includes, for example, more than 3 tents and related equipment. If you are in charge of a group and want to book some equipment, please be in contact with us, we will give you further information related to group rental (pick up and drop off during opening hours and deposit). Please note that due to our structure and process we usually do not work with large groups because it disrupts our workflow. 

Do you have packages?

No because one size does not fit all. We tried some years ago and figured out it was not working. So now we offer full flexibility on product choices. Please contact us if you need any help to choose your equipment.

List of Campsites in Iceland - Free PDF list

Are you planning a camping trip in Iceland this summer and you are not yet sure about where to stop to sleep during your journeys?
Are you confounded by the mere thought of 170+ Icelandic campgrounds to choose among? Then you should definitely pick up the free Áning guide.

This handy guide, which is published yearly, features a comprehensive and updated list of hotels, guesthouses as well as campsites around the country. Pick up a copy, free of charge, in tourist information offices in Iceland, to find out where the nearest camping ground is. The guide also includes useful information on which services are available in each accommodation. Last but not least, Áning also lists all the major swimming pools in the country, so that you too will be able to feel like a real Icelander by taking part in the favorite national pastime: chilling (or warming up, depending on the weather!) at the pool.

If you are planning to camp this summer, this is the most comprehensive guide of Icelandic campsites available – although it is in no way exhaustive, as there are even more camping grounds around Iceland than are listed in the guide, most of them just waiting to be discovered by enthusiastic travelers during their Icelandic adventure.

Do I need to make a reservation for campgrounds?

It is not necessary to book or reserve a night in the campsites in Iceland. You should always find spaces to pitch your tent :)

There is no specific campground map available but the majority of the campsites are indicated by a specific icon on road maps. You can buy detailed Iceland road maps in bookstores or gas stations and they cost around 15-20 Euros
