Reviews for Solstice Campers
Great service from Solstice Campers team! Easy pick up and payment process. Didn’t have to worry about all extras (sleeping bags, blankets, pillows, gas stove with 2 gas cans, kitchenware, table, 2 chairs) as they were provided with the campervan. Basically I got everything that was in description. Pick up is only from Reykjavik office, if you choose pick up from KEF then you will be provided with flybus tickets. It was fine with me, as I planned my trip to start from Reykjavik. I was greatly satisfied with my campervan and Solstice Campers.
Easiest and most affordable camper vans in Iceland. Amazing customer service, and immediate responses. Would recommend for a trip around the island!
Hi Runar, well, very good experience and the van very well, you have a beautiful country. but I do not think it is necessary, to rush so until the last moment, where would be the vehicle or the code of the padlock. you spend a bit of anguish, know where your car and house is 24 hours before, avoid unnecessary nerves. Otherwise everything very well. Thank you

Very good, ok with the expectations, a perfect way to have a marvellous journey
The cooking gas system may be a little more powerfull but this little thing is only to point out a thing to improve, so it is a proof everything was really perfect
The van (a Ford connext) is good; it is perfectly equipped for camping around Island campsites.
The Dacia Dokker 2017 got changed to a Ford Transit Connect, which is basically the same and was really nice. However, it was not possible to change the interior from mattress to table.

Everything was great, but it was quite cold at night and the instructions for the heater were not very clear.
My experience in general was great. The camper van handled well driving and was pretty comfortable to drive. The mobile Hotspot was so helpful! So glad I added it.
The sleeping bags were plenty warm and we appreciated the blankets. The van heater turned on automatically in theidle of the night the 1st couple nights which was great for helping take the edge off the cold. The heater didn't automatically come on the rest of the nights, which was a disappointment. It was very cold. I tried to find an owners manual in the van to figure out if I could program it but there wasn't one, that would have been helpful. The bed was comfortable.
We never used the table and chairs as it was so cold. The camp stove was not good. Perhaps that kind of stove has issues. It took over an hour to boil water to cook pasta. And the stove didn't work/ stay lit outside in the wind at all...
Overall I really enjoyed our 2018 Ford. It did a great job carrying us through Southern Iceland where we saw everything from sunshine, to rain, to windstorms, to white out snow conditions. It did exceptionally well in all of this weather.
Couple of things I want to raise. We had booked the van till Wednesday (today) at 17:00 as that would be 3 hours before our flight. However we found out that the last bus is 16:30 and next one wouldn't be till 20:00 so the bus ticket we have is now useless. We had to buy a very expensive taxi. Some more communication on this may have been helpful.
Next the power adaptor for the Van also did not work properly. The USB port on the vehicle actually broke all of our cables, it must be shorting out and sending surges through so I would recommend replacing that before it breaks any more cables. One of the main reasons we were using the adaptor was because I couldn't find the USB port on the vehicle. Having a manual for the vehicle would have been very useful.
Finally the car did not come with a discount card for fuel which I have seen on a lot of other rental companies so this would also have been very beneficial to us...
Overall I'm very happy with my experience. There were 2 issues I had, 1 being them advertising easy to use stove but didn't mention we needed to bring a specific type of tank to use it so we weren't able to use it. 2 being that the overnight heating system didn't work. This cost us money in gas having to keep the car on overnight instead. However we were happy and really impressed by so much else that it almost makes up for those inconveniences.
Very poor equipment in the van
It was my first trip to Iceland and on planning we searched for a place to rent a car and Northbound came up. We looked them up and ordered the car with fairly short notice but received a reply and shortly thereafter approval for the car. Upon arrival we took the bus to the busstation where the car stood waiting for us and the key was in the nearby safety depositboxes. The car in itself was a Ford Transit 2018 van with a bed in the back. It was perfect for our use. The only thing that could have been better was the camping stove supplied for its power was not enough to warm water in the cold wind that is very prevalent on Iceland, it being the third most windy place in the world. We drove around Iceland for 5 days and had a blast, the little car was our most trustworthy companion during that time, not once did we feel unsafe anywhere. So a 4.5 rating from us (the stove and the wind was the only detractor here)
We had an amazing trip the our little cozy campervan. The car was so easy to drive, no too fuel consuming and the sleeping bags were really warm. The check in and check out process was painfree.
The camper is perfect. We really love our camper.
Very trusted company and recomended to others. Very fast respond.
