Where it all started...

It all started with an eye-opening adventure to Ecuador many moons ago.

Group trip co-founders Marek and I (Ian) went on a back-country motorcycle trip to Ecuador. This is when we realized we HAD to share these fun adventures with more of our friends.

After Ecuador, we headed to Iceland next. This is when we had the idea to create small group trips for our friends to travel together.

After opening our hearts to locals and figuring out how in the world to host a badass adventure we decided Iceland would be our first destination.

The rest was herstory...

Since launching that first trip to Iceland in 2018, our team has evolved and we've welcomed new friends to host trips to Iceland, Bulgaria, and soon-to-be Portugal with us.

Our local vendors, trip guides, and you the traveler are all a part of the immediate Life Nomading fam. We all help to make exploring new lands an exciting, sustainable adventure.

What We Care About...

Sustainability (Not just lip service)

We're committed to investing only in local vendors. Your travel budget goes directly to small, local travel vendors with who we're friends.

An Open and Accepting Community

No matter your background you can be yourself on our trips. Let go of that at-home pre-conceived bulls@#^$, and come be YOU.

Having One Hell of a Great Time

Who knew you can care about sustainability AND have the time of your life. No stodgy group trip dynamics here, come join in the relaxed adventure.

How we got here...


LifeNomading.com the blog is launched as an outlet for my nomadic lifestyle thoughts.


Marek and I partner and travel the world to find the perfect place to host our very first nomad group trip.


We launch the very first LN trip to Iceland (fully terrified), our group was mainly friends that we somehow convinced to trust us.


Turns out, people liked the trip and the next crazy idea was planned for Bulgaria. This time with friends Caroline, Mitko & Sarah.


Lol - if you know you know. Hint: COVID-19


Trips will open up again to Iceland & Portugal! Few spots left for pre-booking.

We travel because experience is the only cure for our souls. We believe that seeing is better than dreaming.

This is us 😁

Yes, we're a couple, and yes, we host every group trip that you join us on. You could say we have a passion for bringing you along for the adventure.
