Welcome to Iceland!
This all-inclusive running adventure will show you vast beauty of the Land of Fire and Ice!
Every day we will take you on a trail run through volcanic fields and hot springs and along sea cliffs. These races are designed to challenge you, with the reward of stunning views along the way (Don't worry, we often slow down to take it all in). At the end, you'll earn a medal to celebrate!
The runs are topped off with daily lunches and afternoon activities to explore the best of this complex island.

Vacation Races always treats you right, but Global Adventures takes it up a notch.
Apart from the awesome medal you'll get at the end of the week, you'll also get some great high quality gear and souvenirs that you'll cherish for years to come.

Vacation Races always provides an incredible experience at our National Parks, but going Global was magical. The experience they provided in Iceland was just incredible. It was grueling and some of the most demanding terrain I’ve ever experienced, but all of this challenged and changed me in the best possible way.
