Motorhome, campervan and RV hire is available in Iceland - the best way to see the country!
But things like this happen in nature and nothing at all can be done to stop it, just as nothing should stop our unquenchable thirst for travel to different or unusual places such as Iceland with it's Mars like terrain.
If you like package travel where you are but one of a group then so be it, but there is a far more rewarding way of seeing the delights of this country and that is to go there under your own steam and hire either a campevan, motorhome or RV.
Being able to travel the country in luxury is something many people would like to do, but who never stop to think about the available alternatives to package holiday travel, poor souls!
Iceland was the last of all European country to be settled by mankind, and then mainly by Norsemen in the 9th and 10th centuries. They came mainly from Norway and other Scandinavian countries, and also from the Norse settlements in the British Isles, from where a Celtic element was also introduced.
Of course, this made the language and culture of the country predominantly Scandinavian from the outset, with traces of the Celtic influence in some of the ancient poetry, some personal names and in the appearance of present day inhabitants.
