A way to save on camping in Iceland
It is a truth universally known that all humans want to pay as little as possible for everything. For this reason buying a special discount camping card in Iceland could save you a few quid.
Not too many people travel around Iceland nowadays and let it suffice to stay in tents. Camping areas in the country, even in high-season, are remarkably empty even while prices for rooms in guesthouses and hotels have exploded.
One reason for this could be the fact that the tourism industry has been and is actively seeking wealthier visitors and pays little attention to those wanting to visit without paying a fortune.
But even those traveling on thrifty budgets will soon realize Iceland is not cheap in any sense. Even just bringing a small tent and camping in designated areas one night will set you back between 1800 to 4000 ISK or approximately 14 – 35$ / 12 – 25€ per person.
Thus a camping trip in Iceland for a family of four could be a rather expensive enterprise. But there is a way to save a few bucks as long as you stay more than a couple of days. The Camping Card will give you discounts for most campsites in the country. The price is 99€ and it is valid for two adults and up to four children at a time. It will save you money if traveling Iceland for a week or so. The Camping Card can be bought online here or in gas stations or in bigger camping areas.
Then again if camping is not high on your list of favorite things you´ll find the very best hotels and guesthouses at the lowest prices on our hotel booking site below.
