There are around 170 registered campsites in Iceland. Camping grounds are normally open from the beginning of June until the end of August or middle of September, depending on location. Camping areas in Iceland are classified according to a standard compiled by the Icelandic Tourist Board called VAKINN. The use of the standard is optional. Where the standard is used, star grading categories are presented in a conspicuous location at the site and visitors are then expected to make sure that the site corresponds to its classification as expressed by the number of stars granted to the site.
Renting a summerhouse is a good alternative for people who want to spend their vacation peacefully and acquaint themselves with a certain area of Iceland. Summerhouses are also an economical choice for small groups and families. Most summerhouses offer cooking facilities and access to hot tubs.
Icelandic Farm Holidays is a chain of farms around Iceland offering travellers accommodation and a variety of services. Among the activities offered at farms are horseback riding, fishing, sailing, hunting, glacier tours, sheep round-up and swimming. Accommodation varies, from farmhouses or country hotels, to separate houses or cottages.
