  • Reviews of the strong

    My clients are happy with their amazing experience in Iceland.

    Issa Berjoui

    “I can honestly say the StrengthTrip to Iceland was a once in a lifetime experience. It really changes your outlook on what you perceive strongman culture to be. Meeting the Mountain was great experience for any fan of the sport or Game of Thrones, such a humble man with a great team around him who are willing to help anyone, even novices such as myself. Cherries on top of the quad biking near the mountain and the relaxing dip in the blue lagoon were unlike anything I have experienced. From the fresh water of the lagoon to the sights you see while riding around the mountains. This trip is unlike any other.”

    Patrick Smith

    “if you are at all interested in weight lifting or training this is the equivalent of being invited by Roger Federer for a knock up on the centre court at Wimbledon.’

    James Crossley

    Great trip for strength enthusiasts looking to check out some amazing gyms and test themselves with ancient challenges.
