Was talking to a guy last week, He's taking the new direct ferry. Think he said it was a 32 hour crossing.

Hi All,
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.

Hi Simon,

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.

Thanks in advance,

I'm also planning a trip to Iceland this summer :)
I should be departing from Scrabster, Scottland on august 8th, ride a week in Iceland and come back by Denmark to France.

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 Attwood
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.:oops2:
