Trail Run It All

This is an adventure jam packed with days that have 22 hours of daylight. Get ready for nonstop runs, hikes, swims, caves, mini horses, geysers. waterfalls, elfs, yoga, and dried fish! We’re not doing the whole snapping-pics-through-the-streaky-window-of-your-rental-car thing. This is literally off the grid, off the trail, off your mother’s radar. This is Iceland and we’re doing it the right way. We’re eating whale, seeing sights only fit for fairytales, snapping pics of you being the adventurous maniac that you’ve always wanted to be (hello Insta flames), and making friends with the most spirited group of people who are just like you. We’ll be taking it at a sexy pace that everyone will be able to keep up with. Those looking for that extra adrenaline kick will always have the option to do sprints uphill - BONUS! This is a trip for all levels, from those who get winded reaching for the TV remote to those who run marathons like it’s just a warm-up. What's your excuse now? (money and time don't count)

WELCOME TO ICELAND

WELCOME TO ICELAND

We'll find you at the airport and right away head to some sweet spots along the way to our basecamp. First we'll see Krisuvikurberg Cliffs for crazy bird cliff stretching for miles on end, then Seltun Geothermal Field.

We'll play some fitness games to get to know each other and do a soft run (2-3miles) in the afternoon and dip into the local swimming pool. 

Dinner will be at home, dancing will be rampant, daylight will be plentiful, and the elfs come out to play at night. Where this night takes you is your story, but this is just day 1.

HOT SPRING RUN + GOLDEN CIRCLE

HOT SPRING RUN + GOLDEN CIRCLE

Wake-up calls, a morning bootcamp, a hearty breakfast awaits before we depart for our Reykjadalur Hot Springs trail run, ending with enough time to relax in the natural hot springs river. Once we're fed we start our version of the famous Golden Circle Tour, which includes:

CHASING WATERFALLS

CHASING WATERFALLS

Wake-up calls and breakfast begin the day, then we depart for Seljalandfoss and Gljufrabui for some sexy photo moments behind some huge and powerful waterfalls. Then we head to the start of our Skogafoss Waterfall trail run - this is of 5 miles to a bridge and 5 miles back, so definitely take in all that 'waterfall alley' has to offer!

After our longest run, we head to Selijavallalaug for some geothermal pool action, you better believe we're bringing the music and dranks - you deserve it after todays run! Dinner and party is at a super sexy restaurant in our town. 

PUFFINS + BLACK BEACH

PUFFINS + BLACK BEACH

Wake-up early, do some partner yoga, laugh, have a big breakfast before we head to Solheimajokull Glacier for your mind to be blown about climate change. We then drive to Reynisfjara Beach to see the some crazy geological shapes and black sand. Lastly, we'll hike/run Vik, where we'll see unreal cliffs, likely some puffins, and most definitely some Iceland sheep. Perhaps an elf or three too. Dinner and drinks at home! 

 BLUE LAGOON + REYKJAVIK

BLUE LAGOON + REYKJAVIK

We'll check out of our basecamp at 9am and go straight to Blue Lagoon to rest and recover after running through all those endless waterfalls. Later we'll all head into Reykjavik to our final homebase, settle in and hit the town hard for all it's got, including the capital's infamous hot dog stand! 

BACK TO REALITY

BACK TO REALITY

Everyone will be checking out at different times (11am latest), so our official goodbye will be the night before. Transportation to the airport is not provided, so please take some time the night before to look into this item.

Until next time... or until we all see each other at the next party because this friendship just started!

A Taste of Iceland

You'll be fully fuelled and ready to run! We'll sample some of Iceland's traditional dishes, expect lots of fish (we're surrounded by ocean after all!) and succulent lamb. Be sure to try Icelandic Skyr yoghurt - it's naturally fat free and contains more protein than any other type of dairy, with about 11 grams of protein per 3.6 ounces! Perfect post run.

Some sections of Icelands Silfra Fissure are so narrow that you can touch the continents of North America and Europe at the same time!

Active Volcanos

Did you know, Iceland has a high concentration of active volcanos? We even have a view of one from our rooftop hot tub! Eyjafjallajökull gained notoriety for disrupting air travel in 2010

Stream Sippin'

When the tap water is fresher than your bottled water, levelled up and head straight to the source. In Iceland more often than not you can drink straight from the streams and rivers. When the water's coming straight from the countries mighty glaciers who needs Evian?

The Icelandic horse is a unique breed. Literally! Bred in isolation for the past 1000 years, it's manners and gaits are different from all others!

Flights

Do I need to be a good runner?

How much money do I need?

Please arrive before 10am to Keflavik Airport (KEF) in Reykjavik, where you'll see the whole gang waiting for you!


No, not at all - this is all levels and we'll have a group that simply walks too. All levels welcome, even the fastest of the fastest - we dare you to try to keep up with our leaders Mantas and Jenn!

This is a European country so credit cards and ATM's are accepted just about everywhere, you can bring some spending cash for our quick stops but unless you're buying souvenirs you won't need much.

Does everyone booze?

We get it- you’re either too busy, don’t know anyone else going, or just accidentally spent way too much on drinks this weekend. Now let’s cut the BS and get real. There will never be the perfect time to get away, being the busy human that you are. We actively encourage people to come alone on our adventures so they can meet people outside of their usual social circles. Everyone that chooses an SYB trip is there to get outside their comfort zone and meet like-minded sweaty people. Money spent on experiences is what every 100 year old says is the most important thing we can do while we’re young. Listen to Gramps and get ready to squat it out with us!
We are firmly committed to providing quality product. We detox to retox because we know that a balanced life is the best life. Your workouts will be led by some of the best fitness instructors around the country, so you’ll be living your best life in paradise while doing 100 pushups and situps a day (we make it fun, we promise). Seriously though, when was the last time you came back from vacation with a more defined six-pack? The friendships and memories that you make on our adventures so are important to us! We pride ourselves in creating experiences that will change your life.
First of all, we’re calling bull on that work event that “just happened” to pop up. But we’ll get over it and see you on the next trip. While deposits are non-transferable or refundable, your payment might be depending on time of cancellation! We will work with you to try to push the payment (minus deposit) to another trip or we can issue a refund, again depending on time of cancellation. What we can’t help you out with? The FOMO that’ll come from watching the adventure on Instagram stories from home. Check out the Terms and Conditions and About pages for more info.
Be safe and you won’t be sorry. We usually choose destinations with low crime rates but it is always wise to stay vigilant. General rule of thumb: if losing X valuable is going to ruin your trip, don’t bring it! (So keep your Yeezys and nice jewelry at home.) Petty theft is the most common type of crime that exists, so be wary of pickpockets looking for cash and always watch your bags. As a precautionary measure we typically provide safes in each room. We’ve yet to experience any considerable theft on our trips (let’s keep it that way).
Do I need to be a fitness babe or muscle man to come on these trips? No way! Not every human being walks around looking like Gigi Hadid- we feel that. All different levels are welcome- even if the only time you’ve ever broken a sweat is hustling to the fridge during commercial breaks. Coming to all workouts are highly encouraged but not mandatory and we make adjustments for various fitness levels and injuries. The point is to try something new and make memories that you’ll never forget. Check out some BLOG POSTS to hear from other non-Schwarzeneggers about their experience.
We won’t leave you hanging after you drop dat coin. We’ll email several times along the way: first after you book, second about a month and a half before the trip, and third two weeks before. Then we’ll make sure you know where to be and when. Unlike that dude from last night, we’ll be hitting you up.
Our adventures could go up to 8 days, which means you should bring at least $400 USD, unless maybe you’re feeling extra generous at the bar. Most meals are covered, but sometimes we’ll dine out and it’s a good idea to have some cha-ching. Credit cards are usually accepted but if not, we’ll let you know beforehand. But for now, get on bringin home that bread.
Take your digital detox to the next level and join us in the Philippines, get ready to step outside of your comfort zone.
This will probably be the Amalfi Coast. Nothing rejuvenates the soul like washing down plates of fresh pasta with local limoncello and floating in the clear waters of Capri.
For sure Sayulita. Between squats we’ll hydrate with shots. Workout, tan, workout, tequila, workout, pass out. You’ll come home stronger and get compliments on your sexy tan and super toned arms.
Hands down this has to be our OG trip - Nicaragua! IT IS Surf Yoga Beer!.
We're all about letting loose and not taking life too seriously, we respect choice and there's no pressure to drink if you don't want to.
