Over three months ago, I did something a little crazy.

Along with two of my best friends, we decided to temporarily withdraw from city life and, for a week, live out of a camper van.

… in Iceland.

As insane as it was, and in spite of the 7-layers-of-clothing temperatures, it was during this week that I came face to face with some of the most incredible sights that I’ve ever witnessed in my entire life. Mammouth waterfalls, alien landscapes, milky blue water, and on two occasions, even the allusive green glow of the aurora borealis.

I came home with an SD card full of photos and videos, along with an unshakable love for Iceland’s incomparable beauty. I hadn’t blogged about it up until this point, mainly because I could never find the words to describe how amazing it was. At last, several months later, I sat down and put together the clips from our journey. 1 week of unforgettable memories summed up in 3 minutes.

Enjoy, and let me know what you think!

A special thanks to Trawire for providing us with a free WiFi hotspot on this trip, and to Kuku Campers for a discount on our sweet ride.

  1. Such a beautiful Video! I am doing the drive around the ring road in a couple of months and this video has made me so excited. Beautifully edited too!

    • Thank you so much, Kate! You’re going to have an incredible time on Ring Road. Hopefully it’s warm when you go! I was freezing my butt off haha.

    • do it!! be sure to give ample time for a proper road trip. I did 7 days and even that didn’t feel like enough 🙂

  2. Thanks for showing our beautiful country. I’ve still yet to travel to the East, I’ve been everywhere else and my plan before the summer ends is to take the Ring Road and discover more gems.

  3. Iceland is magical! There s no other way to describe it. My wife and I recently took a trip to Iceland and explored some incredible spots along the southern coast and around Reykjavik. I put together a little video to recap some of our trip, but nothing compares to experiencing it in person.

    • So true. The epic beauty of that place is impossible to understand unless you’ve seen it for yourself. I’d love to return in the summer! It was freezing when I went haha.
