In line with a Today investigation, hotel phones have two to three times as much bacteria as other nearby surfaces. Actually the front desk person chooses a room for you, and he knows if And so it’s an ideal one or not, when you are checking in. Hotel housekeepers may clean anywhere from 10 to 30 rooms per day, and often have to work particularly quickly between checkout and check in times. Notice that’s how clean your room is. How much can you really get done in 15 minutes, Think about your personal bedroom and bathroom. That gives them only about 15 -20 minutes to clean every room, that mostly means make tobeds, replace any items that were used suddenly, check minibar and be gone. You two are planning to have a wonderful time!!
We have used this for charging laptops, phones and cameras.
Just ask when booking yours and they will quite similar time. Instead, we opted to buy a map from Kuku for around $ Order one time ahead and this will save you $ 10 bucks. We did not rent toGPS. It’s this type of an useful piece of equipment. Normally, thank you very much for taking time to write! With that said, this will all for the most part there’s no place in world quite as magical as Iceland. Ok, and now one of most important parts.
Going in August might be more than ok for finding pools open for showers and campgrounds -you’ll be catching end of season so you’ll be safe -tell your gf not to worry As far as being cold, be sure your camper comes with a little water boiler/camping stove, So if not bring one, and bring a hot water bottle + at grocery store buy soups, pasta, tea and eat warm things before bed.
Love your adventure and great attitude!!
I got inspired a lot by your blog and really keen to exploring Iceland in winter!
Now let me ask you something. It should be great it’s to finding a WC on ring road? I know campers are not equipped with a WC. We do it every now and again now in UK and Ireland.
Natural beauty is everywhere.
We never ran it in the course of the middle of night though. Heat up water and fill that thing, put it into you bed to preheat it. Glad you came across our site for tips and inspiration We only left car heater on throughout the day/mornings/evenings whenever we were cold. Have a blast!! We had/still use zip gether Big Agnes Lone Ranger 15 degree bags. Take a hot water bottle with you to Iceland, we never thought about it at totime. We were just talking about how amazing Icelandic Horses are today. You see, boots that you can hike in will keep your feet warm every night when getting ready for bed. I’m sure it sounds familiar. Noncotton is best, wool, synthetic, or anything that wicks away water. We went 2nd week of April and encountered no grey ice.
Your pictures turned out incredible!
What camera do you have? Can’t wait for our trip to Iceland in September. We use a Canon 6D and love it, we always photo compliments You are preparing to LOVE Iceland, we were just saying other day how much we miss that trip 3 We have a post in production about our favorite camera gear. Thank you very much!! Should you recommend a short 3 hr walk or a half day tour, I’d say if you did. We’re preparing to Iceland in June and are considering a glacier walk on Skaftafell and I can’t decide which one will be better. Hello, wondering if you did any glacier walks with an ur guide? We did not do a glacier walk but we will say if you’re intending to take it what if we make it a half day tour, you’ll only see more and get to experience more of Iceland’s extreme awesomeness!
Have a blast!
Hoping that helps! So, heard of those ‘black ice’ problems which could be a problem to handle if we have no experience in driving in winter. Can I bother you with some question as my wife and I are deciding to rent a campervan in last week of March 2016. You think it’s advisable to drive a campervan with unpredictable weather, right? Then again, one of the issues most people like to leave out when talking aboutIceland is fact that you smell sulphur A LOT, especially in places with high geothermal activity. Of course except for fact that this causes hot water across entire country to smell like farts, including your showers. For instance, probably the main thing we don’t miss. Each N1 has a very handy, and free, map of surrounding areas with helpful tidbits you can’t find anywhere else.
Iceland has devised a brilliantsystem for heating water below toearth’s surface using these smelly hot springs and countries numerous volcanoes… awesome right?!
Bear in mind that highest temp ever recorded in Iceland EVER, was 83 degrees, locals did say that summer months tend to be in to60’s and 70’s.
Excited for you guys, you are should be blown away. It was in to3050″‘s while we were there. Are you camper vanning? Granted that you will have shelter for relief from cold winds, if not you may not have to bundle up very much. You see, was just in Iceland at the start of March -no Northern Lights to be seen. Loved this one! So, my boyfriend is approximately 194 cm and worried about fit in smaller camper vans.
Did you feel like you missed out on anything by not having a 4×4 vehicle?
We are also worried about Kuku 300 km a day policy and wondering if you ran into any problems for any longer your trip?
Hi Mr Mrs Adventure! Generally, any advice will we wonderful! Needless to say, we found your blog to be very helpful! A well-known fact that is. We are planning a road trip to Iceland this September and have a few questions for you. Essentially, food is quite expensive in Iceland and having ability to cook in your campervan really helped with cutting costs. Needless to say, that’s a link to our budget as we travel, however, Iceland was a bit more.
We will send you an email that has a bit more detail. You guys could be in for a real treat in April! That was offset by quite a few more sunny days. Great guide, and KuKu Campers are p! Albeit we did have days with rain pouring down continuously, we rented a virgin 4×4 camper from them in June Slightly less layers required at that time of toyear. We opted for convenience of campsites, you can park camper in many places. They are cheap, social, always have hot showers and often also a kitchen to cook, eat and wash dishes. Great tips about campground! You are right, thank you for kind correction!
Dana and I were awaiting outcome of this blog post!
What were your average daily temps there? By looks of your clothing, it seems much colder than I anticipated. We’re headed that way in 6 weeks. This 100 might be a good solution. Now pay attention please. Did you hear any mention of it warming up more into summer from tolocals? For example, place above became. Now this was much easier for our American vocabulariesto handle. By end of ourtrip we hadresorted to referring to places by first 3 -5 letters. Now look. See below. With all that said… Luckily Iceland was kind enough to use pictures to visa card company know you’re going out of tocountry.
Please do not worry about converting cash, they take credit everywhere, and prefer it.
Depends on your budget but look into it!
Besides, a rental car is definitely will be cheaper, maybe you can lay in back with your sleeping bag VS using a tent. Furthermore, I expect to see a million and one campers as we drive Ring Road! Love blog! Generally, having any town, you won’t have a hard time locating them. Seriously. Was it enough to stay comfortable during your trip? How many did you come across during your journey across ring road? Although, happy I came across your blog all my questions are answered at once! Now look. My boyfriend and I are doing a 10 day camper van trip similar to yours in June. It is my main for ages way It’s a relief to read that So there’re a few public showers out there. I don’t wax and most of us are aware that there is no way I can visit a public pool without shaving my leg for nearly 3 days….S Thanks in advance for your respond!!
You did mention that you do need to shower naked before and after going in pools and no private stall are in place, Just a quick question.
Where do you shave your legs, as our trip we may be similar to yours.
We are leaving next week, thanks for informations it should be useful! Known I’m pretty outdoorsy and had contemplated tent/car rental but came across this and thought it to be a better idea all around! Is it doable to rent one as just a solo traveler or will it tally bust any sort of budget, in process of planning a trip with a camper van. Vehicle rental and gas will cover your transportation and accommodation, quite a few of your expenses will go to groceries, pools, and a few sites/activities. We typically don’t include specific to totopic, as we like to keep our posts time sensitive.
We should say to budget anywhere from $ 30 to $ 50 a day for these basics per person and have in mind tofollowing.
Much of what really was look, there’s free to see, photograph, and wander upon.
Then the Ring Road is 870 miles around and gas is approximately $ 00 per gallon and cost to get around it will depend on tovehicle’s gas mileage. Remember, hope this helps and we know you will have a fantastic time! Look, that’s toquestion. Determined by how much time you have you may just need to pick a home base and go from there. Notice, many choose to stay in Reykjavik and take day trips from there.Hali is another great option.
We recommend at least 10 days while Ring Road.
Well, it will definitely be cold.
When we went 2 years ago NONE of them were open that time of year, perhaps they know something we don’ Wishing you all better on your Icelandic adventure. Certainly, we were prepared so it was ok, we went in April and it was around -3 C when we woke up in tomornings. Certainly, layers and make dozens of tea you’d better be ok in a Kuku As far as campgrounds being open, Know what, I recommend you contact Icelandic urism board as they could be able to provide most insight into if/what for ages as you have warm sleeping bags. It’s should be extra chilly there in December but you will love it, as there gonna be less crowds We recommend reaching out to Icelandic urism board about camp site and pool operating dates and times as they should be able to provide you with most insight.
Wishing you all p for an epic adventure!!
If we really wanted to get onto icy roads or more onto glaciers/tointerior of country we will have needed a 4×We were completely satisfied with what we had and enjoyed Ring Road in it’s entirety.
It really depends on experience you are looking for. We did not have a 4×The main roads were completely accessible for us in our Renault Kangoo, small vehicle. In north about few minutes fifteen east of Akureyri. That amazing cave is is Myvatn. Glad I came by your blog. Although, thank you for all info and sparking even more excitement in me for this trip! With that said, omg, I needed to read this post! Therefore, I should be intending to Iceland last week of June with my husband. For instance, we have also rented a 4×4 from KuKu, and I’ve been looking everywhere for tips on what to pack and expect while van camping. Cave where we could drive right up to entrance must be great!
Absolutely amazing pictures.
I’ll be visiting soon and my girlfriend is in a wheelchair.
I was hoping you could tell me where that picture of your car at a cave entrance was taken. Essentially, things that we do know are that for any longer ring road on north side, and only about 50 to 100 ft off toroad, we really can’t remember exactly where ain’t is. It was a really neat cave. Yes, that’s right! Thank you! Hope this helps find this special cave to share with you girlfriend. We based our direction off of weather but I will maybe recommend going counterclockwise from Reykjavík, glaciers and waterfalls near Vic are AMAZING! Glad you found this helpful! You know if camp sites are open in March, right? We are planning preparing to Iceland March 8 18, we were wanting to rent a campervan as well! You think it will be to cold to rent a camper van, right?
Hi I have a question!
Can you tell me more about cooking supplies that KuKu offers?
You get a butane stove, right? I’m sticking to southern coast, I only have 5 days, I actually am using KuKu Campers this June. Thanks for info about your trip to Iceland. For ages toway? Since those are cheap and I look for to save money for quite a bit of my trip in England, I’m thinking I’d mostly eat pasta and soups. Glad you found us! Anyways, especially if you aren’t staying at campgrounds since Ring Road. Was it more ad hoc or anywhere online you could direct me a lot information, my boyfriend and I are planning to go at the start of August and like your family and friends ours has us tally freaked about potential lack of showering lol.
Ifyou’re working with a budget you should hit up toairport’s Duty Free or a local Vinbudin for any adult drinkies, Bonus, most affordablegrocer, and I’m pretty sure we visited N1gas stations aka.
Reykjavik, Akureyri and Selfoss. Look, there’re literally3 cities you can count on having things open, at fairly normal hours, throughout toyear. You are preparing to have a fantastic time! We don’t really know what it’s like to be there any of those times, however, I’m almost sure I would imagine May will have less people than in June. For example, I love your pictures! This is tocase. I actually am to
I am really hoping that most wn will have public pool open while we are there and hopefully, we can find some camp sites easily.
We were so intrigued by idea of renting camper and just do our own things. My gf had mainly concerned with a shower and bathroom but I believe your blog addressed loads of those problems. Usually, guess our only other concern is 40F weather for a while being that we are renting tocampers, not camper van. Glad you found our site helpful!! So for a whileest stretch we had to go was 6 days, that was hard, but again most places were closed or had shorter hours when we were there in April, more of toshower/pool places may be open when you’re there since it should be summer.
