Iceland Expedition

with Bliss Mobil rentals

Leave the beaten path
to make travel dreams come true

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.

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 black sand beaches. This is all followed up by impressive glaciers, ice caves and of course the particularly long days…. Iceland is breathtaking and totally unlike any other country! In addition, our way of travelling is perfect for exploring the island this summer: adventurous and completely self-sufficient.

Expedition

Icelandic adventure

In your “home away from home” (and with a small group of travelling companions) you will travel deep into the dramatic inland of Iceland. We will avoid the touristic routes, and even the tarmac altogether, as much as possible. During this adventure, you will leave the beaten track and overcome challenging 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, varying weather conditions.

Of course it is not just hard work behind the wheel, we will also create the most fantastic memories outside of the expedition truck. Think of hiking through the ever changing landscape, diving or snorkeling among the tectonic plates, kayaking on the glacier lagoon and relaxing in the thermal baths.

Guidance

Over 10 years of experience

Overland Travel has over 10 years of experience in planning, organizing and guiding the most adventurous trips imaginable. The professional guides have above-average technical knowledge and have had first aid training. As can be expected from a professional travel company, they also have all required tools at hand.

Truck

Home away from home

Experience the “Freedom of Independence” and join our adventurous Bliss Mobil Iceland self- driven expedition with an endless number of challenges, highlights and unforgettable moments.

For this particular Iceland expedition there will be a limited number of rental trucks available with a 13 Foot High Bed Bliss Mobil unit, presented on a well-equipped Mercedes-Benz Atego 1018 4×4; extremely suitable combination for remote and independent travel.

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

Bliss Mobil and Overland Travel have already organized successful expeditions in large parts of Africa and Scandinavia. Once again, we have combined our knowledge, experience and specialities to introduce a unique and adventurous expedition with a rental vehicle.

During the expeditions with a rental truck, you make your own journey but you also benefit from the pleasure and convenience of travelling in a small group with an experienced guide.

Practical information

Convoy and teamwork
During this trip, we will have to drive in convoy on some occasions. Mainly during departure and arrival, but also on difficult off-road terrain where you might need to help your fellow travellers. This is exactly why we do these expeditions in small groups; to help each other with challenging passages and any potential recovery. This makes it possible to get to beautiful locations where you would not be able to experience alone.

In many cases you can decide yourself whether you would like to travel independently or if you prefer to join the other adventurers. You navigate by using the road book and the navigation system that we will provide, in which all the waypoints are already programmed. At the end of the day you will meet each other to spend the night. Support and help is always nearby.

Intensity
No experience is required for this expedition, only a C1 driving license which allows you to drive a vehicle 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 travel pace guarantees that a sufficient number of sights can be visited.
The expedition has been planned in such a way that most of the daily travel distances can be covered in half a day.
