Over a week, we'll explore all the best spots. You'll visit the most incredible waterfalls. One more majestic than the other. You'll see waterfalls of all types, heights and from all angles! Most of them are just by the road for easy access. The best way to explore Iceland is by camper van.

Trail Running Adventures

Trail Running Adventures

Most days, you have the option to join a guided trail running adventure (5km-17km) exploring Iceland's most epic spots. You'll run the very finest hand-picked trails all around Iceland. We run at a relaxed social pace, with plenty of stops. Joining the runs is optional, feel free to explore at your own pace or do your own thing. Re-join the group in the hot springs or at the campsite.

Glaciers

Glaciers

Iceland has the biggest glacier in Europe. Along the road you'll see ice bergs floating by on lagoons and the big glacier tongues coming down from the mountains. If you want to get up really close, we can connect you with a local guide to take you on a day trip right into the heart of a glacier!

Outdoor Adventures

Outdoor Adventures

Trail running, hiking, wild swimming, & outdoor yoga in the Icelandic wilderness. We'll show you the best spots. Join the group or explore a spot on your own for part or all of the day before re-grouping with us later, it's up to you.

Hot Springs & Wild Swims

Hot Springs & Wild Swims

Iceland is gifted with incredible wild swim spots & geothermal heat. Together they make hot springs. Some are next to the road, others well hidden and less known. We will take you to the best ones! Every day we will visit a new hot spring :)

BBQ & Bonfires

DAY 1

Reykjavik - Seljalandsfoss

Pick up your campervan and hit the road. Our frist camp site is about 2h drive away but there's plenty to explore on the way. We recommend going for a hot spring hike and visit some waterfalls on the way. It's also a good idea to stock up on some food and drinks for the van.

DAY 2

South Coast Exploration

We explore the south coast and all its waterfalls. You'll experience a smörgåsbord of amazing nature. They'll be a guided trail run to join if you want to, otherwise you are free to explore on your own. End the day in Vik on the famous black beach or perhaps go for a tandem paraglide flight in the sunset?

The day starts with a drive through the biggest volcanic desert in Europe. Endless black lava fields before you reach the ocean and Husavik on the other side.

DAY 7

Horseback Riding and drive home

We are making our way back towards Reykjavik. On the way is Skagafjördur, famous for being the best place in Iceland to go horseback riding. We highly recommend to try this.
