No. We do stop by interesting places along the way, so please bring your camera!
We offer trail running tours services for people that like to exercise and enjoy nature at the same time. While you are on the go, you get to explore the environment and our tours make sure that you enjoy the best of each season. We combine running and traveling for people who have integrated running to their lifestyle and want to experience what Iceland has to offer.
