On the left is Isafjordur!
Below is what it's all about, vikings, mountains, ocean, wilderness!
How about a two week motorbike drive around Iceland, much of it off road on mountainous trails around fjords and past volcanoes? Hot springs, aurora borealis, and some of the most remote, beautiful riding you can imagine.
Iceland has a ring road, but the smaller coastal roads offer an even more remote riding opportunity. 2300kms in 15 days. Time to stop, take diversions and find the road less travelled.
|Iceland! 2300kms around the island!|
Viking Biking suggests a 7 day circumnavigation, but I think I'd go for 15 days on a BMW F800GS, though going whole hog on Charlie and Ewan's R1200GS would be a blast too.
