BEARS ON ICE is a men only event and a social event for bears AND friends. BEARS ON ICE is a friendly social event for bears and friends where you get to see a little bit of Iceland and have fun with like minded guys from all over the world.  


Of course you can! BEARS ON ICE is a social event for Bears AND Friends.

If you enjoy the company of like minded men of all shapes and sizes and you´re comfortable in your own skin you are more than welcome to join us for a fun weekend.

BEARS ON ICE is all about friendship and we love to mingle and make new friends while having fun on top of the world.

That is actually a great idea. A lot of the guests who have come for the event arrive either a few days before the event or stay a bit longer when its over. Many use the opportunity to hop on daytours available out of Reykjavik, some rent a car and take a drive for a few days to the countryside to see a little bit more of Iceland while here. The options are endless and depends on what you want to do and see and how long you´re staying. Below are some useful links that might help and give you some ideas.
