Everything you need
Day 1: Arrival
We start the adventure at 9:00 from the HQ of Campeasy.
Day 2 – Snaefellsnes Peninsula
We start early on day 2. Shuttle to Campeasy base and check in your camper van (if not already done). After a short introduction we leave and head north to Snæfellsnes Peninsula.
It is a scenic region in western Iceland, known for its diverse landscapes. We can explore black sand beaches, rugged coastlines, lava fields and hopefully snow-capped mountains. We have many options to choose depending on weather like Kirkjufell mountain, Búðakirkja, Djúpalónssandur beach and the charming fishing villages of Arnarstapi and Hellnar.
The plan is to spend the night near Grundarfjordur and, if conditions permit, see the Aurora at Kirkjufell and/or Búðakirkja.
Day 3 – Heading northeast
Hopefully we can enjoy a Kirkjufell sunrise in the morning. After that we take our vans and leave to the northeast, passing the famous Sword Bridge and heading northeast towards Akureyri. There are some smaller spots roadsides which we could visit. The plan is to camp in Akureyri with options to relax at some Hot Pots or in a superior SPA. In the evening we could go for a Aurora hunt in e.g. near Dalvik to round out the day.
Day 4 – Waterfalls
Our main goals are waterfalls on day 4. Goðafoss is one of the most famous and beautiful waterfalls. Its name means “Waterfall of the Gods” and it is said to have gotten its name from the legend of Iceland’s conversion to Christianity in the year 1000. The second highlight for day 4 is Aldeyjarfoss – it is another beautiful waterfall in the interior highlands and one of Ronalds favorite locations. It is known for its unique basalt formations and is often considered one of Iceland’s most photogenic waterfalls.
Unlike Goðafoss, which is easily accessible, Aldeyjarfoss requires a drive on a dirt road and a hike up to 1 hour depending on conditions. However, its secluded location and scenic surroundings make the journey worth the effort.
Our campsite near Goðafoss provides the opportunity, if conditions are right, to witness the Aurora at Goðafoss, which is an incredible experience.
Day 5 – Myvatn and Detifoss area
Day 5 offers several options in the morning to choose from on our way to the east coast: Skutustadagigar, Viti, Hverfjall, Dimmuborgir, Grjótagjá, Namjafall Hverir, and Kefla are all potential destinations in the famous Myvatn area. If time permits, there is also an option to visit the Myvatn Bath.
In the afternoon we will hopefully be able to visit Detifoss which is considered to be Europe’s most powerful waterfall. Another beautiful waterfall called Selfoss is located downstream from Detifoss. It is a smaller waterfall but offers stunning views of the surrounding landscape.
The day will conclude with camping near Stuðlagil Canyon.
Day 6 – Stuðlagil Canyon and the waterfalls of the East
On day 6 we visit Stuðlagil Canyon – a canyon known for its basalt rock formations. The canyon was created by the Jökulsá á Brú glacier river.
After a short drive we will visit Hengifoss – a beautiful waterfall in eastern Iceland. It is known for its distinctive red rock formation and is one of the tallest waterfalls in Iceland, with a height of around 128 meters (420 feet).
The Eastfjords region of Iceland offers dark skies and is an ideal place to hunt for the Northern Lights. The area is remote and unspoiled, offering a peaceful and awesome experience.
If the weather is not good enough for the lights you can consider Vök Baths: A geothermal spa which features a large hot tub and floating pool, with views of the nearby lake and surrounding landscapes.

In the afternoon, you’ll have the chance to take in the view of Vik Church, a beautiful church perched on a hill overlooking the town of Vik. You’ll also visit Dyrholaey, a beautiful headland known for its dramatic cliffs and stunning views of the surrounding landscape.
You’ll spend the night camping in Vik, a charming town known for its beautiful black sand beaches.
Day 10 – Black sand and waterfalls
Day 10 will start by the black sand beach and marvel at the incredible basalt columns and sea stacks that dot the coastline. Next you’ll visit Skogafoss, a stunning waterfall known for its impressive height and beautiful rainbows. You’ll also have the opportunity to hike to a nearby hidden waterfall, which is tucked away in a beautiful canyon. In the afternoon, we`ll visit Seljalandsfoss and Gljúfrabú, two stunning waterfalls that offer unique perspectives and breathtaking views. You’ll end the day camping in the area and dreaming about the beauty you’ve experienced on this unforgettable journey.
Day 11 – Sneak into the Highlands
On Day 11 you’ll have the opportunity to explore some of the lesser-known but equally stunning natural wonders of Iceland.

Day 12 starts with a visit to Gulfoss, one of Iceland’s most famous and impressive waterfalls. After admiring the stunning views, the next stop is Strokkur, a geysir that erupts every few minutes, followed by a visit to the beautiful blue waters of Bruarfoss. Along the way, there are several optional activities to choose from, including a soak in the Secret Lagoon, visit a hot spring, stop at a farm or visit greenhouses to see how tomatoes are grown in Iceland’s geothermal environment. After a full day of sightseeing, it’s time to drive back to Keflavik HQ of Campeasy.
