Reykjavík Bear 2023

Starting Thursday 31st of August, Reykjavík Bear will welcome about one hundred bears from all over the world for a weekend of fun, excursions, spas, and more!

Reykjavik Bear was founded in 2019, following in the footsteps of the long-running Bears on Ice that ran from 2005 to 2019. There was no option but to keep up the traditions!

On Thursday, all of our guests will meet at the beautiful rooftop bar Petersen Svítan for our Welcome Party. The beautiful views from atop the historical Gamla Bío building, including our famous rainbow street, make the perfect backdrop as the bears meet for the first time.

Then on Friday, the Bears go on a road trip! Hopping on two tour buses, Reykjavík Bear guests will explore the famous Golden Circle of Iceland. Our first stop is Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO world heritage site, where the bears will explore the geology and history of Iceland. On the next stop, after discovering the picturesque Geysir hot spring area, our bears will get a delicious lunch and continue getting to know each other. Then we will head for our last stop: Gullfoss, to admire in awe the beautiful waters of this world-famous waterfall.

After the excursion, our guests get a rest back in Reykjavík before the party really starts! Our legendary Friday Top-Off Party* takes place at Gaukurinn, where the beats of our very own DJ Mighty Bear will open the evening. The DJ Neo Scott from Madrid will get the mood even intimate with his steamy sets! Whether they want to take off their shirt, bring their favorite fetish gear, or just be themselves, the bears will get frisky through the night! Rumor has it there will be a secret show on stage…

The bears will recuperate from their Friday shenanigans with a relaxing dip in the Blue Lagoon on Saturday morning! There, they will be able to spill the tea about the previous night and relax in the beautiful waters of the Lagoon.

On Saturday evening, the place to be for bears and admirers will be the Sunset Club! Located in the basement of the EDITION hotel, Sunset will host the Reykjavik Bear Club Night*, where DJ Joff, coming all the way from Paris, will make sure to put everyone on the dance floor with his commissioned DJ set!

What goes best after a Saturday night full of dancing? A brunch, of course! On Sunday, at Jómfrúin, the bears will enjoy one last moment of conviviality, debrief their weekend, and bid farewell to Reykjavik Bear 2023.

And for those who didn’t have enough yet, for the first time ever, the bears had the option to add a trip to the Sky Lagoon on Sunday afternoon. That limited group will get one last change to soak in the geothermal waters of Iceland, before finishing the weekend.

The city promises to be full of hot, hairy, burly men! And we cannot wait to see that.


* The Friday and Saturday parties are open to all men-identifying guys and enbies, bear or not!
Individual tickets for the parties can be bought at the door or online at the shop.
