Things to consider before booking

  • We are assuming that you will take your own bike. Please get in touch with us if you don't want or can't use your bike. We can arrange a bike rental.
  • The weather in Iceland is unpredictable and extreme. We will have rain, sunshine and strong winds. Temperature can be from 5 to 15 degrees Celcius. You must be prepared for everything.
  • Travel insurance is required in case of illness or injury. While we do all we can to avoid the latter, motorcycling is risky, and injuries can happen. Many current accounts or home insurances come with travel insurance. Double-check if those cover this kind of activity.
  • Driving license and motorcycle insurance valid in Iceland are mandatory.

Frequently asked questions

  • I am a beginner rider. Can I make it?

    Yes, this trip is mainly on tarmac roads. There are a few short sections where the main road is made of compact gravel, but those are as easy to ride as a regular road.

  • What bikes are suitable for this trip?

    Adventure, scramblers, cruisers or any sort of touring bike. A sport bike will also be fine but may be uncomfortable.

  • Are flights included in the price?

    It will be much easier if you sort out flights yourself. We can assist you if you need help.

  • What acommodation options are available?

    We will stay in hotels and guest houses in twin rooms. That means you will share the room with one person. We can try to arrange a single accommodation, but that may not be possible. Hotel availability is very limited, especially in more remote parts of Iceland.

  • Can I hire a bike? What bikes are available?

    The short answer is yes, but it may depend on availability. We don't have rental bikes, so we will arrange a rental with one of the local companies. There is always a chance they may not have any machines available.

  • Is shipping my bike safe?

    Yes. We are using a global shipping company, and they take good care of bikes.

  • What other costs should I expect?

    You may need to budget for the following:

    • Flights and stay in Iceland to explore the country independently before or after the trip.
    • Bike holding and tax fees may be charged by the shipping company. Those depend on how long your bike will be held in the warehouse before and after shipping and your home country's tax policies. You should not expect more than £100.
    • Food during the trip, assume around £300 for two weeks.
    • Fuel
