Get ready for an adventure of a lifetime

Meet geeks from all over the world — trade in your laptop for marshmallows, and head to Iceland for an experience you’ll remember for the rest of your life (and a chance that we might even catch the Northern Lights).

Join us for 4 adventurous off-the-grid days in Iceland (limited Wi-Fi available at Camp for messages home).

Ticket includes food, lodging, ground transportation, guides, programming, and more. You’re responsible for getting to and from Reykjavik (flights on WowAir are as low as $300 round trip).

Who is Camp Press for?

Camp Press was created for every kind of self-identifying geek that wants to shed the digital world for a few days, and get back to the basics — real people, real conversations, real connection — the real world. Letting the battery run out while spending time talking, laughing, playing, or singing with other geeks around a fire could be the best thing you do for yourself all year.

Relax and leave technology behind

Go on an afternoon hike, play some games, take an afternoon nap in the Volcano Huts, go on a scavenger hunt, take a swim in the thermal swimming hole, or sit around the campfire with other campers… minimal schedules, lots of fun, incredible memories. Think a cross between summer camp and Burning Man… in Iceland… one of the most picturesque places on earth.

Leave everything to us… we’ve hired a company specializing in Icelandic travel to guide us through our trip. They know the area well, and have been running tours like this for decades.

Sleeping Accommodations

You'll be living in luxury by remote Icelandic standards (hey, it's not a tent!). Each room accommodates two people, and you'll be matched with a roommate unless otherwise specified when you purchase your ticket. Rooms are heated and are all a part of a larger cabin with shared toilets in the hall of the building. The bunks have double lower beds and single upper beds.

The rooms are small but comfortable and include made up beds for extra comfort.

Sauna, showers and a natural warm pool are accessible in the LavaSPA a few steps away from the building.

The Venue

Volcano Huts are located in Húsadalur Valley in the Þórsmörk Nature Reserve in Iceland, right next to the Eyjafjallajökull Volcano & Glacier. The unique nature of the Þórsmörk area make this an ideal place for any nature and hiking enthusiast.

Þórsmörk Nature Reserve (pronounced Thorsmork in English) has one of Iceland’s most dynamic and beautiful landscapes, where active volcanoes and towering glaciers rise above the lush valleys below. The Þórsmörk area has endless hiking trails and is connected to the Landmannalaugar Nature Reserve via the Laugavegur hiking trail.

Food

Meals will be provided by our partners in Iceland. Accommodations can be made for dietary restrictions (i.e. vegetarian, allergies, etc). Please fill out the relevant information in your application. 3 meals and snacks will be provided each day.
