we are a Young couple planning a one week trip to Iceland in mid July. Accomodations there are far to expensive for us, so we read about wild camping which is possible there. Honestly, I dont know if I camped two times in my life, so we are really beginners and I have many questions. We are only allowed to bring cabin luggage to the plane, so we plan to buy a small tent but waterproof of course, up to 3 kilos only. We Will also have a sleeping bag each. would these be ok?
I would kindly ask you to please advice on the weather in July. We Will take hostels in the north cuz its colder, but the rest of the trip we camp. Is it very cold in the night? is it possible to stop by the road, walk a bit inside and put a tent? is this kind of tent enough or you need some special gear for these conditions?
we are really not "campers", but we would love to try for once... i imagine the scenery has to be fantastic. Also the prices are too high for us, even in hostels, so this is the only option....
Thank you very much
