Bliss Mobil and Overland Travel have already organized successful expeditions to North and South Africa and Scandinavia. We have once again combined our knowledge, experience and specialism to introduce a unique self-drive expedition to Iceland.
A safe and highly adventurous trip in ‘Corona’ times
Iceland is a destination at the top of many travellers bucket list. It is an amazing country where you can responsibly go on an adventure with a Bliss Mobil expedition truck this summer.
Iceland is one of the best performing countries in the world in terms of a strict response to the Covid-19 pandemic. They have a strict testing policy for international travellers to maintain their infections as close to zero as possible. Upon arrival, visitors will undergo a test and stay in “quarantine” for 4 hours awaiting the result.
Since the country consists of mostly uninhabited areas, social distancing is guaranteed. The concept of our expedition, where you will drive yourself, and live in your Bliss Mobil “bubble” truck, guarantees your safety and a healthy expedition.
Self drive expeditions, with the true Freedom of Independence
The best way to experience the real Iceland and enjoy the breathtaking scenery is to drive through it at your own pace. From active volcanoes and hot springs to wild waterfalls and from black sand beaches to impressive glaciers and ice caves, Iceland is breathtaking and totally unlike any other country!
In your “home away from home” vehicle you will travel in a small convoy deep into the dramatic inland of Iceland.
During this adventure you will leave the beaten track and overcome difficult off road routes. We will visit locals’ favorite secluded spots – which can only be reached by 4×4 vehicles a few months a year – and travel through deep and challenging river crossings in rugged and varying weather conditions.
Of course it is not just hard work behind the wheel, we will also create the most fantastic memories outside the expedition truck. Think of hiking through the impressive landscape, diving or snorkeling among the tectonic plates, kayaking on the glacier lagoon and relaxing in the thermal baths.
Home away from home
Do you dream of an adventure with all the comforts of home? Experience the Freedom of Independence and join our adventurous Bliss Mobil Iceland self- drive expedition with an endless number of challenges, highlights and unforgettable moments.
The unique character of our expeditions makes it unlike any other journey you have experienced! And… no off road driving experience is required.
Unique Travel Concept
In a rental expedition truck you create your own journey, but you also benefit from the pleasure and convenience of travelling in a small group and with an experienced guide.
Convoy and teamwork
We will have to drive in convoy a number of times. Mainly during departure and arrival, but also in difficult off road terrain, which is exactly why we do these expeditions in small groups. This way we can help each other with challenging passages and any recovery, if needed. This makes it possible to get to beautiful places which you would not be able to experience alone.
You decide yourself whether you would like to travel independently (based on coordinates) or will join the other adventurers. At the end of each day you will meet each other to spend the night. Support and help is always nearby.
No experience is required for this expedition, only a C1 driving license which allows you to drive a vehicle with a weight classification up to 7.500 kg. The intensity of the trip will partly be determined by factors such as weather conditions and your personal physical condition. A healthy body and mind, as well as a well-prepared vehicle, ensure that you will be able to enjoy this trip to the fullest.
The expedition has been planned in such a way that most of the daily travel distances can be covered in half a day. You travel by using the road book, which gives you the opportunity to follow your “own schedule”. The travel pace guarantees that a sufficient number of sights can be visited.
