Inverter

A 12V/230V inverter (Europe) or 12V/110V (American) will allow you to charge your electronic devices using the 12V “cigarette lighter” socket in the car. It also adds a couple of USB chargers to the car, which can be convenient to charge your phones and other devices.

When you park your campervan on the invisible landing pad for UFOs in Iceland! 🚀🛸🚐

Can you spot our Happy 4x4 in this picture?👀

Fun fact: Did you know that Iceland's otherworldly landscapes have even caught the attention of NASA?🚀

They have used central Iceland as a training ground for astronauts due to its striking resemblance to the Moon.🌝 According to the Apollo Program geologist Dr. Elbert A. King: “If you want to go to a place on earth that looks like the Moon, central Iceland should be high on your list, as it beautifully displays volcanic geology with virtually no vegetation cover.”

Between 1965 and 1967, they sent 32 astronauts, including Neil Armstrong, to train in Iceland.🧑‍🚀

So, while you may not spot any aliens, don't be surprised if parts of Iceland feel otherworldy 💫

No one can resist taking a picture of the fabulous Vestrahorn. 💛 It is one of the most photographed mountains in Iceland (along with Kirkjufell). ⠀

To lay your own eyes (and camera lens) on this beauty, you will have to visit the Stokksnes peninsula. There is a small fee to enter the area as it is privately owned land.⠀
⠀
Vestrahorn's two neighbors are Eystrahorn and Brunnhorn (aka "the Batman Mountain"), creating a small mountain range known as The Horny Mountains (cool name for a band, right?) 😄⠀
