We had a "similar" car which was Subaru xv. Car was very nice and good. Only remarkable difference was that I rent diesel and subaru was petrol. Fuel consumption was a bit bigger. I rent also two camping mattress with car and those were quite poor. Gps, sleeping bags and cooling box was good. Service was good. Thanks :)
Fantastic clean and modern car with all the space we needed for a family of 5! The service at Thrifty was amazing, very friendly and it was very easy to take the shuttle bus from the airport (it’s literally just around the corner) and took no time to get our car and also the return was fast and easy!
I came across Lagoon Car Rental through Northbound.is so I’m not sure if they are related but, from the tons of options to rent a car, this one was the cheapest and the easiest to book. You can pre-book a car paying a very small amount and it has the best rates in the market for a 2WD Car as well as 4X4. I chose a 2WD (Kia Rio) and I ended getting a 2WD (Hyundai i20) which is similar. The car was great, maybe with some scratches, but it’s because it was white, and in iceland the wind is extremely heavy, so it’s easy to get hit by some stuff when you are on the road. The pick up at the airport was smooth, and the customer service amazing. I highly recommend this website and this Car Rental.
Everything was very good. Although it was a 8-year old car, we haven't had any problem.
Honestly, it was not that great. The condition was very poor. It had obviously been involved in a collision and was 'tired' and dirty with many things broken or missing, despite only having some 80,000km on the clock. I found Nordic Campers very unsatisfactory to deal with, obviously understaffed, rushed and unmotivated, all except Robert provided truculent, reluctant service and failed to meet customers' eyes. It was absolutely not worth the money.
It was an amazing experience. We would do it the same way all over again.

The car itself was great, but the service was not ideal. The car needed check-ups that should have happened prior to rental. The rear light was out, making reversing in the dark dangerous and challenging. Start-up was weak and concerning. I was not sure if the car would make it. We purchased camping kitchen gear and there was no cutting knife provided, either. This is a pretty standard tool for camping and the response we got was that we were being a bit demanding.
Highly recommend renting a car from this dealer. They were agile and met up to the appointed place and time. There was the Marathon in Reykjavik this weekend and the dealer helped us with all the convenience since the city was closed. Recommended!
Great car and great service! No problems at all. The crew picked us up from base hotel pretty quickly and drop us at the airport...
Ok, a little smaller in the back seat for 3 adults than we had hoped for. The car ran perfectly and we enjoyed getting around in it. Appreciated the charger for a phone and r
Delivered exactly as promised. Northbound's online chat made booking very easy as they promptly answered any questions I had. Very easy process, I excellent service.
The car (Subaru Forester) was very good, everything as expected of the model and year. The only issue was right side wiper (not driver side) which was peeling (the rubber was slightly open and it came more open during the trip as wipers were obviously used quite a lot). The service was good and helpful. Only thing I would have expected was a car with a diesel engine.
Very nice experience, price was quite cheap for such good equipment : beds, pillows, blanket, camping table, chairs and stuff to cook ! Honnestly the best way to travel in iceland for me !
Generally, all was good: the rental got us around Iceland over 2400 km. Some details, however, were irritating. The walk to the shuttle was a bother with all our luggage, in the rain. Other rentals had a representative and car available to the rental office. The actual rental office allowed for pushy renters to check in ahead of others. The standing desks and paperwork were uninviting. The agent could have helped us get to and find our car rather than vaguely saying where we’d find it. Tight, tight lot. Early on road problems ( leaking rear tire pressure required constant refilling; warning lights in German on a Japanese car; unrealistic solutions, like returning the car from far north). We managed on our own. Curt return, “Take everything out of the car and come back so we can go out and check the car for damage,”. Seemingly little problems, unresolved, left a sour taste and poor memories of an otherwise wonderful country...

We booked Toyota Land Cruiser Prado from Lava Car Rental via northbound. Price on northbound was a little lower than on Lava web site. We did not have any problem when piking vehicle up. Northbound has super user friendly user interface, and you can quickly check your booking, print voucher any time.
This was the most affordable camper van price we found for an automatic vehicle, which not all rental companies in Iceland carry. It was comfortable (for 2 people) and had everything we needed for our 5 days/5 nights loose itinerary with long drives. The storage underneath the bed easily fits one large duffel bag, two carry-ons and a couple more small bags/items. We liked that it was well-equipped without add-on costs like other companies that charge extra per item, so it was great to have it all included, especially the WiFi hot spot! The only thing that didn’t work was the inverter/converter charging port. Luckily I had brought my own USB charging port for mobile phones and we easily charged other batteries and devices at camp grounds. We also liked that the vehicle was unmarked with the company logo. There is no heating system for the back but we were provided with 2 sleeping bags and 6 blankets, both to cover windows and warm us up...
I really enjoyed my first visit to Iceland, and our camper was one of the reasons. It was very clean, and in very good conditions. Thanks to Solstice Campers for the opportunity to travel securely and comfortable!
To bad I could not bring back my car the last day to the city centre. for the rest good service. and lovely people.
Not as comfy car as we are used to renting but served the purpose and had plenty of room for luggage and 4 people and a few groceries. Somewhat utilitarian and noisy inside while driving.
The car behaved very well on the road, it was clean and well prepared when we took it, including the small stove and gas bottle, chairs and table and cutlery. Star Car Rental were also helpful with the sleeping bags, since our luggage was a day late.
Do check the tires of the car when you take it out. One of the tires was pretty worn out, I guess it has to do with the rough roads in Iceland.
Everything was fine, and our journey went very well. Suzuki Jimny is perfect for Iceland, a little rough on tarmac but very tough and reliable on gravel. We did also some river crossing and everything worked perfectly.
Just a minor issue, a headlight out but it was no problem since I almost always drove in daylight.
The roof tent was very practical, easy to open and close, and definitely very comfortable!
The staff was always very kind and efficient.
I definitely recommend Northern Lights Car Rental.
Conforme à notre attente :-) mais compliqué quand vent violent
Une poêle et un couvercle seraient les bienvenus dans le set de cuisine.
New car , perfect and comfortable
Service was brilliant from start to finish. We had an issue with tyre pressures leaving the office and was told to just inflate them ourselves at a garage so we did. Then the one tyre went flat completely after 20 or so miles. We got straight onto the emergency line and were told to go to a garage nearby to have it replaced or fixed. They fixed it but then it blew just yards from the garage. We went to a 2nd garage who changed it to a new tyre. The communication from David at the office was outstanding! We have nothing but high praise for how it was handled and we didn’t have any other issues for the rest of the week. The car itself is great for the F roads, and economical, we covered 1770 miles in the 7 days. The roof tent was cold a couple of nights but that’s to be expected, it’s very comfortable for 2 people and space in the car is great. I wouldn’t want to use it for more than 2 people though if having it for a week...
trip in Iceland was unforgettable. We enjoyd every moment even the rainy days!
Pick up from the airport was good and we foud the driver afterall. We we arrived to the office and it was quite busy. But the quoue went fast. We got our car and when we started to drive it we noticed that the light on sings in the meter panel didnt work at all. We couldnt see how much there were gasoline or the blinker indikator didnt work. After that we drove the car back to the office and the office worker gave us another car which was ok. When we went througn the papers it was quite messy. There was a little lack of information becouse our first car was a diesel car as the office worker said and the second one was regular 95 gasoline which the office worker didnt say to us. i had to confirm that from the emergeny number before i filled the tank.
But after all it was nice trip and the second car was good...
