Iceland

Fire & Ice

WHY ICELAND?

A land of extremes, Iceland is a natural paradise. A unique place for its spectacular landscapes and its particular history, its culture is a testimony of resilience, and its size ensures a very convenient sense of space, ideal to explore our inner journey.

 

WHY SEPTEMBER?

September is the locals' favorite month to explore. Being the transition from summer to autumn, there are fewer tourists, and 14 hours of light (it gets dark at 10pm). But most importantly, in September the Icelanders welcome the Northern Lights, and we shall go in search of them!

Chris & Sebas

Our adventurous spirit led us to travel the world long before we met. We found travel to be a deeply educational experience.
Then we met, and the learning became exponential. Then, in the middle of the Himalayas, came the stroke of inspiration.

Our new mission would be to share that sense of wonder, and those discoveries with special people, to build a new traveling community that shares consciousness and purpose. Today, more than ten trips and 250 travelers later, we can say that we are fulfilling our dream.

NORTHERN LIGHTS

BOREALIS

The Northern Lights are unpredictable. With this in mind, we chose Midgard Base Camp, which will give us the flexibility to admire them from their on
site hot tub, or allow us to go chasing them at night. Going out in search of them with emotion but detachment, and embracing their ethereal nature, is an important part of their magic.

-The initial deposit is refundable until July 15th. After this date, it ceases to be refundable.

-If due to illness or some situation related to COVID you are not able to travel 60 days before the trip, the payment made is transferable to another trip.

-Between 30 and 60 days before traveling, the payment made is transferable to another trip (minus the deposit).

-100% of the trip payment must be made no later than 30 days before traveling.
