Accommodation

Program

Day 1

Welcome dinner with the guide at a restaurant in downtown Reykjavik.

Day 2

From Reykjavik, you take a scenic route to Thingvellir National Park, riding along Lake-Thingvellir to get there. Thingvellir is a site of historical, cultural, and geological importance and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Iceland. From there, you head off to take a look at Geysir and Gullfoss waterfall where you have lunch. You enjoy the rest of our day riding through the Icelandic countryside until you reach your accommodation for the night just outside the village Hella.

Day 3

After breakfast, you continue riding along the south coast of the country and stop by the beautiful but different waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skogarfoss. You pass two well-known glaciers, have lunch in Vik where you take a look at the picturesque basalt sea stacks called Reynisdrangar and the promontory Dyrholaey. You then continue your ride through seemingly endless desert fields, enjoying the impressive mountain scenery, reach Europe’s biggest glacier Vatnajokull. You end this day’s journey in the village Hofn, where you can sink your eyes in the vista of the massive glacier.

Day 4

After fueling your bodies with breakfast and coffee, you ride to Jokulsarlon (glacier lagoon) where you take a boat tour in between floating icebergs. Then you continue riding along Vatnajokull glacier and head towards the east fjords of Iceland. On this part of the trip you enjoy the magnificent mountain scenery, ride through valleys and have lunch in the tiny and atmospheric village Djupivogur.

From Djupivogur we head northeast, ride-on fun gravel roads, mountain slopes and drive through one of Iceland’s biggest forests to the "capital" of the east-fjords Egilstadir, where you spend the night.

Day 5

With a stop-by at Modrudalur, the highest situated and still inhabited farm of the country (469 meters), you head to Asbyrgi one of nature’s wonders. Asbyrgi is a spectacular 3.5 km long canyon surrounded with up to 100 meters high cliff walls. Catastrophic glacial flooding from one of Vatnajokull´s rivers is said to have formed it. From Asbyrgi we ride to and enjoy the sight of the most powerful waterfall in Europe, Dettifoss. In the afternoon, you arrive at lake Myvatn and take in its beautiful surroundings before spending the night in the main hotel in the area.

Day 6

Before heading to the capital town of north, Akureyri, you ride around lake Myvatn, enter an old highland road and stop by at one of Iceland’s most spectacular waterfalls Godafoss. After an easy ride on paved roads, you reach Iceland’s second city Akureyri where we spend the afternoon and stay for the night.

Day 7

After a steady breakfast, you opt for road number 1 (the "ring-road") and ride through various valleys, the village Blonduos and head straight to the Snaefellsnes peninsula with it’s spectacular and supposedly healing glacier sitting at the far end.

You ride around the glacier on different kinds of roads. As you drive along the peninsula, you have a few stops at interesting places such as the shark farm Bjarnarhorn where you can have a taste of traditionally prepared shark meat. Arrival late afternoon at the accommodation in Langaholt guesthouse.

Day 8

Instead of driving straight to Reykjavik, you start the day by riding along the volcanic mountains of the Snaefellssnes peninsula and take a lunch stop at the Settlement Center in Borgarnes village. Then, if the weather allows, you take two short detours to enjoy more fun roads and beautiful landscapes, such as the route to Hvanneyri and Hvalfjordur (Whale-fjord). Apart from being very picturesque, the fjord is quite popular amongst motorcyclists for its curvy paved road. You will end your adventure by having dinner in the heart of Reykjavik.
