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 travellers. Join us this summer!

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.
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.
Prices start at €990/person

Can I join as a solo traveller?
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 usualyl have solo travellers joining us in them.
If you pick a bigger van, the price is always for full occupancy. Meaning that if a van cost €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.

Yes, we stay at campsites each evening that have bathrooms and showers available for all guests. So you wiull have access to showers daily and we will also visit many hot springs uring the week so it's easy to stay fresh during Vanlife Iceland 🙂
What does the itinerary look like?
The way Vanlife Iceland works is that our guides recommend our favourite 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 adventuyre.
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.
