Experience the magic of the midnight sun, Icelandic nature and great friends during one week of Vanlife.
For 20-40 year olds
What is Vanlife Iceland?
Vanlife Iceland is a guided road trip around Iceland. We gather 15-20 vans of like-minded explorers and adventure around the famous ring road.
During 7 days we cover the best Iceland has to offer combined with the magic of living in a home on four wheels.
Vanlife Iceland is a unique experience, created by local experts and adventure travelers. Join us this summer!
Created by local experts
Ása Steinars is our local Iceland, not many people know the countryside better than she does. Born and raised in Iceland, Ása has left no mountaintop, waterfall or hot spring unexplored and she’ll be leading us on this journey to show us her best-kept Icelandic secrets.
Leo Alsved is the adventure master and experience creator. He has spent the last 10 years creating everything from big sailing festivals to boutique ski events deep in the Arctic. His close friends have learned that whenever Leo host an event, they show up and enjoy the ride.
Every event is hosted by two amazing guides. They will be first at the campsite every day to welcome you with open arms, cold beers and hot BBQ’s.
We curate our guides from local experts and great friends, all masters at hosting events and creating unforgettable experiences.
Closer to the start of the event we will let you know who will be your guides for the week. Please note that Ása & Leo will join some events but not all of them.

Our itinerary around Iceland
Day by day, this is some of the stuff we will be up to.
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.
We explore the south coast and all its waterfalls. You’ve got a smörgåsbord of amazing nature just by the road. It’s all simple access and a few hikes available if you want to. End the day in Vik on the famous black beach or perhaps go for a tandem paraglide flight in the sunset!
GLACIERS & ICEBERGS
We continue east into Vatnajökull natural park and the glacier territory. Stop at the famous glacier lagoon and walk between icebergs on Diamond Beach. We highly recommend the glacier hike. It’s an incredible experience walking on the ice, seeing the ice falls and climbing through cracks with ice axes and crampons.
Wake up in a remote camp site after a night around the bonfire. We continue east towards Höfn, the lobster capital of Iceland. On the way go for a hike to Svartifoss or chill in the hot springs in Hoffel, or both. We will also visit Stokknes, a beautiful black beach before lobster dinner in Höfn.
Welcome to the beautiful East Fjords of Iceland, surrounded by high mountains and water all around. We camp in Seydisfjördur, the most picturesque fjord of Iceland. This is also home to an amazing sushi restaurant serving fresh fish from the local fishermen, a great spot for dinner.
WHALE SAFARI & SUNSET SAIL
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. On the way there’s of course a hot spring to bath in as well as a geothermal area. We finish the day with whale watching and dinner.
HORSE BACK RIDING
It’s the last day before heading back to Reykjavik. We have a few more hot springs to explore and option to go horse back riding on Iceland horses through a beautiful valley. Then we gather for the last night together, BBQ at the camp site and hang around the bonfire. A magical week has come to an end but feel free to stay a few days in Reykjavik before flying out.
