Why do people choose Happy Campers during winter over some of the other guys, you ask? There are at least 13 reasons why Happy Campers is the best campervan option in Iceland, no matter the season, and you can read all about those reasons in the About Us section. After all, there's a good reason why Happy Campers is the most highly reviewed campervan rental in the country.

But looking at winter in particular, here is what you can expect from your Happy Campers experience:

Winter Kit

All rentals include a Winter Kit, which consists of high quality sleeping bags for everybody, free WiFi for extra convenience and security, and personal guidance and a winter lesson during check-in using our Information Corner touch screen.

Use the sleeping bags in addition to the normal bedding and our heater to keep you warm at night.Use the WiFi to look up the weather forecast and road conditions each day. During your personal winter lesson, we'll use our custom touchscreen to go through all of the important information to make you a more confident driver during winter and take as much time as you need to answer your questions and concerns.

No extra cost, hidden fees, or tacky "free extras" sales tactics that nobody likes. This is just the Happy service and it's always included.

Winter tires

Your van will be equipped with quality tires that can handle the Icelandic roads. We take safety seriously and don't cut any corners when it comes to winter tires. This is true for all campervan categories.

Tens of thousands of people travel around Iceland in winter in non 4x4 cars. This is perfectly safe and doable, given the right preparation and caution, as the main ring road is usually well maintained during the winter months. However, driving a reliable car with good winter tires is a must and that's the Happy Campers promise.

quality heater

Our Webasto heater will be your best friend during your Iceland trip and help you stay warm during those cold winter nights.

emergency assistance

Our service includes a GPS tracking system in case of an emergency. This allows us to find your exact location and fix your problem as quickly as possible.

We also have a 24/7 emergency phone number that you can call if you have an emergency. No matter your situation, we will be there to guide you through it and make sure that we find a solution.

cook inside

Who wants to cook their campervan meals outside in a snowstorm? Not us! That's why we designed the van to make it easy to cook inside the warm van.
