Safe storage in Denmark & Iceland
This trip is still in it's infancy but I would love to try and spend a few weeks in Iceland with my own vehicle in 2014. so there's still plenty of time for planning.
The key issue I can see is the sheer time it takes to get there:
Ferry/Drive to Esjberg, 1-2 days
Ferry from Hirtshals to iceland, 2-3 days
and then the monumental return via the Faroe Islands, 5-6 days
My wife and I are limited to 'normal' holidays i.e. 2-3 weeks and this really restricts the time we can spend 'in country'.
I have, therefore, hit upon a cunning plan and wondered if I could do the journey in stages e.g.:
- Weekend 1 travel to Denmark and leave the car somewhere and fly home.
- Long weekend 2, fly to Denmark, pick up the car and catch ferry to Iceland, leave the car and fly home.
- Main trip, both fly to Iceland drive around for 2 weeks and then catch ferry home via the faroes(total 3 weeks).
I know this is adding a lot of cost and may not be feasable but I just wanted to explore the options.
Does anyone know where/if you can leave your vehicle, securely, in Denmark and Iceland? Bearing in mind that there could be a long period (weeks/months) between dropping in off and returning.
The other option is shipping the vehicle independantly or hiring a driver to get it there for us. It's a LR Discovery.
Does anyone have any ideas on the cost of these options or any other ideas?
