ICELAND 2024

Preregister for iceland 2024

will you join us on an adventure to the island of ICE & fire

A dream destination for all outdoor lovers: Iceland. The country of extremes. With glaciers, volcanos, black beaches, ice crystals, unreal hikes, waterfalls, hot spots and so much more! 

Do you dare to join us on this big adventure!? Preregister now (without obligation) and you’ll be the first to know when bookings on up (only 21 spots to give out). We’ll organize this trip in summer 2024.


Mission

We believe in doing things that give you energy. Traveling, adventure and meeting new people give that energy, we believe.  

That’s why we want to take people with us and show them adventure lies just around the corner. 



Hostelbus

We’re a hostel on the move. You’ll meet new people, experience the country, share drinks together, but you’ll just wake up with a different view every other day!

Next to that you can also rent the bus as a group accommodation. 

 

Activities

Hiking, mountain biking, surfing, kayaking: we’ll make sure you’ll spend most of your time outside the bus!

Green Wheels

We believe it is important to minimize our footprint. As outdoor lovers we’d like to work with nature, not against it. We realize our bus isn’t the most environmental friendly bus, so this is how we compensate.

solar panels

We have enough solar panels on our roof to give power to the full bus. Enough to charge your cameras, keep your drinks cool and enjoy nice tunes in the evening.

Destinations

We’ll show our guests you don’t have to go far to experience cool things. We’ll drive a max of 600 km per trip because we believe adventure lies around your corner!

Recycle

When building the bus, we have tried to to use as many recycled materials as we could. Did you know that the old ‘stop-button’ is now a light switch for example?


no meat

We don’t serve meat on our trips, but don’t worry: you won’t even notice, food will still be lovely!
