Wild Camping and drinking water in Iceland
Just a couple of weeks or so and I'm off to Iceland!
Planning to wild camp, at least some of the time, which I believe is fine out of cultivated land and specified parks.
I'm wondering mostly about driniking water. I'll be on a push bike so there will be a limit to how far I can travel to get it, and how much I can carry (probably only a couple of litres).
I know that parts of the interior are very dry. How easy is it going to be to get drinking water? When I get it, is it usually safe to drink? Are there any streams poisoned by volcanic activity? Any resident bugs I should know about?
I drink stream water all the time here in Scotland, but I wouldn't like to presume I can do the same in Iceland.
Thanks for any input!
