    Hi Kiersten, I am curious about the insurance policy you took out from World Nomads that covered you for the campervan damage. Could you please tell me what type of policy did you buy and how much you paid for it?

      Hey Medha! I would suggest getting in contact with the World Nomads team and chatting with them as some of their policies could change/have price adjustments from year to year.

    hi! Thank you so much for sharing all of this! Im just wondering if it’s illegal to free camp there? You mentioned not having to pay for accommodation, did you still pay for campsites? Thanks again!

      Hi Rose! Yes, you do have to pay for the campsites, but it’s definitely a lot cheaper than typical hotel accommodations. It is illegal to free camp there as the country is trying to preserve the natural wilderness and strictly designate which spots you can camp in. When we rented the camper van they helped us and gave us all the campsites. Definitely look into Iceland camping cards as well!
