planning on riding solo around Iceland next year.
Planning on taking my bike in the Ferry leaving Denmark, spending around a week or so, and then back in the boat.
Anyone hesitating to go that would be interested in joining for a Brew on board?
Any hints on local contacts, biker friendly clubs and/or spots would be welcome.
Hi, I'm planning going, no dates yet as I'm working there then doing the trip.Been twice.I'm planning shipping my bike over, from UK/faroes/Iceland.What type of bike are you taking?
The main ring road has been completed and is now very good.You certainly don't need a trail bike , any road bike will do.
The main interior/gravel roads, last year were often washed out and the surface was very washboardred / rippled, making riding a shaky business!
I am looking to leave a bike there and am looking at customs/import regs.
I have friends there so I could store it.
Bike hire in Iceland is Very expensive.
You may be able to go from Scrabster or Aberdeen to Lerwick and get a Smyril ferry Iceland via Faroes, or if Smyril no longer stops at Lerwick get a ferry from Lerwick-Faroes. A lot of the ferry info on this route is out of date.
Smyril Ferry has discount for bikes.From Mainland Europe/Denmark.
Scroll down this link below for prices.
I'll be riding around in the highlands at that time for sure. Hit me up if you like, let's go for a ride. I don't have much experience but I'm getting to know people who do. Do ride Kjalvegur / Kjolur / Kjölur. It's majestic. Enormous fun to ride.
Well i could well be cycling in Iceland again in 2013.............Either that or it'll be Norway on the GS.
It's all too easy to book a flight from GLA-KEF for around £250 and the bike is only £30 if they remember to charge for it. Two hours and you're there and after that it's all good apart from the headwinds!
I can live on £30 per day including accomodation on a cycling trip, get fit and loose some weight aswell as getting a close look at the scenery........Slowly!
The only way to get to Iceland by ferry is from Denmark-Faroes-Iceland and since the Norrona doesn't stop in Shetland anymore it takes too long from Scotland as it's a long haul to Denmark before you start and costs a small fortune!
Now if only the Norrona was to stop at Lerwick again as it's passing i'd be buying a season ticket!
If it's good weather then the sprengisander crossing is great, 4 or 5 river crossings, good veiw of the glacier.
Me and Zebb will be travellin lateish June Over there for 3 or 4 weeks.
Also you have "Landsmot" at Hunaver (Bike Rally)
See you on the ferry - A friend and I will also be going on the 18th
Hitting Denmark the 28th again so not too much time up there.
I'm on a F658, but friend is riding a FZS 600 so it will be mostly paved roads (this time)
(2014 is already in the planning phase )
(I live in Denmark, just north of the German border, if you need a place to crash before heading to Hirtshals just let me know)
