Tour: End of July 2017 (6 Days 5 Riding days)
This tour takes us across the country where we will see Iceland´s nature in all its glory. The nature is very diverse and we ride in almost every possible condition with views that range from sands and open fields to rocky environment, mountains, lava fields and glaciers. We travel light and meet with our support vehicle each night. Group is small so we get the most of it and our guide is a very experienced rider and is very familiar with conditions in the highlands.
This tour would not be suitable for beginners but anybody who can ride approximately 200 km. per day, around 8-10 hours per day (with plenty of stops) should be good. There will not be much of technical/ hard riding.
Participants: 5-6 riders + 2 guides + support vehicle driver.
Accommodation: Mountain huts, guesthouses and a hotel (last night, Akureyri)
Free of charge: sleeping accommodation 1 night before tour starts and one night after tour in our headquarters at Rauðhella 1, Hafnarfjörður.
New! For a minimum cost (just for food and accommodation), it will be possible for wifes/husbands and friends to ride along with the support vehicle and meet with the riders each night. This is a great way for the extra person to see Icelandic highlands as well.
