Stay safe, Stay active.

Guides and maps for running, hiking, and wilderness isolation in Iceland

Physical activity, whether it is inside or outdoors, has rarely been as important as it is right now. However, we urge everyone to be safe and to follow the local laws in your area as all countries are approaching the COVID-19 health crisis in different ways.

We met with a few of our friends and found out how they'll be keeping themselves busy in the coming weeks. They shared a number of guides and maps with us for running, hiking, and wilderness isolation in Iceland.

Ása Steinars

Wilderness isolation

"As I work independently and am not bound to a single place of work, I decided to head off to an 'outdoor quarantine' in a cabin in the Northern part of Iceland, where I could be quite isolated from other people."

Says Ása Steinars, who's been staying isolated in North Iceland for the past weeks. Read more about Asa Steinars ⁠'outdoor quarantine'.

Elísabet Margeirs

Running in Iceland

Elísabet Margeirsdóttir didn’t set out to run the 400 km (250 miles) by-invitation-only Ultra Gobi when she started running fifteen years ago. But a string of successes led to her becoming the first-ever woman to finish the grueling desert run in sub-zero temperatures. 

Elisabet shares with us two of her running programs, her favorite running routes in Iceland and general tips for those looking to use the coming weeks for more running.
