Imagine going on an Astronaut Expedition to the Moon, Mars, Titan, Europa or Io

You put on your astronaut suit equipped with a water-cooling system. You are part of an incredible fellowship of international astronaut cadets with an accompanying astronaut.

Your physical and mental abilities will be put to test, and your views on Earth, space and life will expand. You will experience a variety of emotions, but ultimately moments of immense joy, when you overcome yourself.

Life Begins at the End of Your Comfort Zone

Our expeditions are authentic astronaut training experiences in hostile, yet stunning surroundings, designed for ordinary people to become extraordinary. An unforgettable adventure taking place in an out-of-this-world environment. Our training is provided by world-class leaders within their field, including former NASA astronauts.

Vatnajökull Glacier (Cat 4)

The Interstellar Expedition

In the volatile and constantly changing environment of Iceland’s largest glacier you will train your Astronaut Mindset in expeditionary skills. We will focus on adapting to extreme environments in the otherworldly surroundings of the film Interstellar. You will be trained in mountaineering, superjeep driving and adaptability. You will be tested under different leadership styles of the Polar explorers, of Amundsen, Scott and Shackleton. In addition we will look at how you build endurance in your team, deal with isolation and solitude and explore the relativity of time.
This expedition is a prerequisite for an upcoming Antarctica expedition.

Next trip: April 19th-25th 2020.


Askja Caldera (Cat 3)

The Moon Landing Expedition

Located in the same place as the Apollo astronauts trained prior to going to the Moon, you will train your Astronaut Mindset in the spirit of Apollo astronauts. This expedition focuses on astronomy, geology, navigation, communications, crisis management, survival and search and rescue. It takes place in the lunar-like environments of the Icelandic highlands, in the midst of vast lava fields and breathtaking craters of active volcanoes.

“A life-changing experience”

Your training starts after you reserve your spot

You will receive your special invitation letter on how to prepare for the Expedition. You will start your pre-training and assessment phase. We will prepare you to make sure that you have an unforgettable adventure.

After the Expedition you will get a custom patch, a certificate as part of the Space Nation Astronaut Program, and you will begin your post-training and assessment phase. You open special chapter in your journey, but that we will reveal once you have completed an Expedition.


Each expedition is graded based on our own grading system. On a scale from 1 to 5 we offer expeditions of varying difficulty. They all are mentally challenging, but the higher the scale, the longer the duration and the more extreme the environment.

As an example physical requirements for Category 4 Expeditions such as the Interstellar Expedition are ability to walk 10 miles / 15 kilometers off trail in a day.


Take our ultimate astronaut training, the best leadership training that you can use both on planet Earth and beyond.

Our expedition program is a combination of training modules which you can take individually or all combined. Each expedition is in a new location and focuses on different training areas.

All have a common focus on team development, leadership and adaptation and take place in some of the most hostile, yet stunning surroundings on the planet.
