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!

Highlights of the week

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.

During your week in Iceland, an estimate for what you’ll spend is something like this:

  • Fuel – €250 per van
  • Food – If you buy food in a supermarket and cook in the van, estimate around €100/person for the week.
  • Dinner at a restaurant – From €40pp incl one drink.
  • Extra activities – These cost usually €60-130 depending on what you choose to do. They are all optional but come highly recommended to try at least some.
  • Drinks – We’ll be spending most of our evenings at the campsite. We recommend picking up alcoholic drinks at tax-free before you enter Iceland. A beer at a bar is about €8 and a cocktail €15.

We do not sell solo spots, only vans and it’s up to you as a guest to find someone to travel with (if you want to).

Our small vans are great for one person and we usually have solo travelers joining us in them.

If you pick a bigger van, the price is always for full occupancy. Meaning that if a van costs €1000/person and can host 2 ppl, then the total price of the van is €2000. This doesn’t change if you book it as one person or two.

All restrictions have been lifted and Iceland is now open to all travelers. No need for vaccination or testing before entry.

Our events are for anyone who wants to live in a van for a week and explore Iceland together with a group of great people.

We are open-minded, love to meet new friends and inclusive to everybody.

Our events are designed for 20-40 years old

Yes, we stay at campsites each evening that have bathrooms and showers available for all guests. So you will have access to showers daily and we will also visit many hot springs during the week so it’s easy to stay fresh during Vanlife Iceland.

The way Vanlife Iceland works is that our guides recommend our favorite spots each day. Then it’s up to you to explore as you like.

We don’t have a set itinerary you have to follow and we encourage you to explore and find your own adventure.

If you want to follow our guides, that’s of course ok too. Every evening we all gather at the campsite. We set up a BBQ, bonfire and music and enjoy the evening together.
