I would seriously like to get more info on getting to Iceland with motorcycle from the U.K, as it has been of great interest to me for a number of year to get there. All info, prices and suggestions greatly recieved, ferries or air freight.
?tion for you, where are you sailing from and are you camping or hoteling it up there in Iceland, would like to know more bout your trip and the ferry time table and if you are restricted to certain times of year if thats ok with you.
Thanks Roi ere in sunny Lancashire.
That sounds like an excellent trip. I have wanted to go to the faroe islands and iceland for a while. Could I give you a phone call sometime and find out more details as I would like to do a similar trip myself.
I have just had my Smyril ferry passage confirmed. It leaves from Scrabster 02.00 on the 27th July goes via Faroes and arrives Iceland 09.00 on the 28th July so a sailing time of 31 hours, the return cost was 225 GBP for bike and rider. On the return from Iceland 12th Aug to Scrabster I have a 3 night stop over in the Faroes. It is possible to avoid the 3 day stopover in Faroe and carry on to Denmark.
Steve managed to lose your email address, Was wondering the best way to insure bike when in Iceland ? Also do Smyrill line provide all lashing straps for securing bike bearing in mind i only have a side stand. Awaiting conformation from smyril Line re booking 11/7 to 23/7 think you arrive back on the boat we leave on.
Hi all i live in Iceland and if you want to come to Iceland and biking around Iceland highlands area the best time is late june and to end of september but in good years it can be to end of october.For people from Europe it is possible to drive to Danmark to small fisherytown name Hanstholm and take ferry Norrona wich is in own of Smyril line and this ferry goes to orknys, Faroy islands and to Seydisfjordur in Eastcoast of Iceland.For people from Canada New Foundland and USA it is best to send the bike before with a Cargo Ship two companies are with scedueled sailings to Iceland Samskip and Eimskip and they go from New York Boston Norfolk Halifax St.Johns and some of their ship also go to pacific harbours in USA both of those Companies also has a Euro route from UK Neterland Germany Danmark France.Hope this Information will help and answer some questions.Pls contact if something need to know about Iceland
Hope anyone else booking has an easier time than me, 3 booking requests from their website and they still have no trace of them. 3 phone calls to head office in Faroes, then 3 emails to head office, yippee at last a response.
Anyway, booked now, leaving 12 july retun to scrabster 23 July, anyone else on same ferry ?
