Don`t forget you need Danish Kroner for Denmark because we don`t use the Euro.

Hope you have a great trip....wrap up well.

Hi Kevin,

Just tried the link but facebook say it has expired. I'd be interested to see the photos, perhaps you could redo the link?

Enjoy. We did the Iceland interior on trail bikes in 2003, enjoyed it so much we came back for more in summer of 2004. Take camera, fishing waders rather than bike trousers, tent and a bottle of booze. Great holiday.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
