Here are the upcoming Iceland run travel experiences for 2023. If we’ve missed any, don’t hesitate to let us know.
Iceland Run Adventures
Arctic Running – Laugavegur Trail – June 2023 – September 2023
The Laugavegur Trail may be one of Iceland’s most popular hiking spots, but for this challenge you’re lacing up your running shoes. Though possible to do in one extreme day, you might find it a bit more enjoyable (and a bit more doable) if you let yourself have two days. You’ll start your run in Landmannalaugar by the striking geothermal mountains and hot springs before taking on a 33mi/55km route to Thorsmork. To make the trip even more tantalizing? You’ll be staying at Volcano Huts along the way.
Vacation Races – Iceland – June 3 – 10, 2023
Enjoy this 8-day running adventure through the Land of Fire and Ice. From runs that take you to the Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach and relaxing sessions in the Blue Lagoon to an infamous white night (when the midnight sun never sets), this Iceland run adventure is one for the ages.
Vacation Races – Iceland – June 24 – July 1, 2023
Arctic Running – 5VH Trail Run – August 4th – August 13th 2023
If you’re coming all the way to Iceland for a race, you can’t run just once (even when the race is as epic as the 5VH Trail Run). Make the most of your Iceland running adventure by coming for an extra week to soak in the scenery, loosen up those legs, and explore. On the running itinerary are Thorsmörk (the Valley of Thor), Hveragerði, Skogafoss, and more.
Iceland Run Retreats
Run Wild Retreats – Iceland Adventure with Intention Retreat – August 15 – 21, 2023
Let your running take you places you haven’t gone before with this 7-day trail running retreat in Iceland. From running on a volcano and on mountain trails to soaking in natural hot spring pools, riding snowmobiles on a glacier, and seeing puffins in the wild, this is an experience that will find you at the edge of your comfort zone as you take in a remarkable country.
Run Wild Retreats – Iceland Trail Running + Wellness – August 22 – 28, 2023
This is an exploration of wild southern Iceland, which includes its iconic black sand beaches, geysers and glaciers, geothermal hot springs, and giant waterfalls. This 7-day trail running retreat focuses on mindful running clinics and allots time for self care so you can give your energy and yourself the energy you both deserve. The week will be finished with a delightful soak at the Sky Lagoon geothermal hot springs as your muscles and joints are relieved after a week of great, meaningful work.
