What is Iceland Overland?
Iceland Overland is written by a veteran of serious motorcycling, for adventure seeking motorcyclists. It’s the only planning and route guide for motorcyclists dealing with all aspects for your trip to Iceland, from the time you start preparing until leaving the island after an adventure tour on your bike.
Iceland Overland not only deals with local issues like guided tours, workshops, general paperwork, logistics, accommodation, riding conditions, communication and search and rescue, it also deals with more general issues for motorbikers going on an adventure tour, like riding on rough terrain, basic repair, first aid for motorbikers, crossing rivers, towing, spares, packing etc.
Information on more than fifty routes is to be found in Iceland Overland with information on the terrain, experience needed for the route, distance to fuel station, river crossings and accommodation, to name just few. GPS waypoints and maps support all the routes in the book.
More than seventy huts and lodges in the interior is listed, along with service provided, booking information and GPS coordinates.
