Trip highlights

Guided by Kyana & Andreas

Kyana is a local Iceland and photographer. She spends most of her time driving the countryside of Iceland and capturing beautiful content. Good vibes follow her wherever she goes, join her around Iceland and you will never have a dull moment.

Andreas is a vanlife veteran. He has converted his own van and lived in it a full winter, skiing all the mountains he could find in Sweden (and that’s a lot of them). 

Together Kyana & Andreas is a dream team and two of our most experienced Iceland guides.

Your home for the week. Fully equipped with a kitchen, heater and a comfy bed.

Vanlife is the best kind of life. Anywhere you go, your home follows. You’ve got a kitchen for food, a fridge for cold drinks, a bed for naps and always a warm jacket when you need it.

I don’t think I can say anything that has not been said yet. It has been epic and thank you all for welcoming a non-adventure girl like me with open arms – I can now say that I love it. You are all amazing and I hope to see you all again soon somewhere in the world. You are all more than welcome to London or Copenhagen at any time. Lets do a trip soon again 😍

Deeply grateful to all of you for burning so brightly, and choosing your path and people over basically anything else that’s out there at the moment. Honoured to call you all my friends. Triple double that for Ása & Leo

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.

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.
