My husband and I are planning a trip to Iceland for the first time and we’ve never been more excited. We’re looking into the hostels from the #wakeup15 promotion. Thanks for the great info!

You cannot camp wherever you want in Iceland. Your statement needs to be edited. Tourists believing they can camp “anywhere” is causing lots of issues for Iceland and Icelanders. I will be a tourist in Iceland in the next couple of days and I have taken the time to read a lot of information about Iceland. Respect the people and the land, leave no trace, pick up your poo (if you really have to go outdoors), camp in designated areas or get permission from private owners, don’t drive off-road and… DON’T MESS WITH THE MOSS!!!

Roni, you’re absolutely right, and we’ve updated the post to reflect the current laws and common courtesies of camping in Iceland. A few years ago, before it exploded in popularity, camping virtually anywhere was permitted, but as tourist numbers continued to grow, rules have changed. Thank you for pointing this out!
