Iceland 2008

In the summer of 2008, we did a biking event on Iceland (65º N). This magnificent island in the North Atlantic is a true paradise for the fresh nose cyclist. The land of ice and fire will never be boring to wonder around. And if that would happen, the changing weather will take your attention away. It is an excellent island for whatever cyclist you are, but do take a rain jacket with you ! We focused on the southwestern part of Iceland. This is in short the trip we covered: Keflavik-Grindavik-Porlakshofn-the island Vestmannaeyjar (by boat of course)-Porlakshofn-Selfoss-Hella-Porsmork-Hella-Brjansstadir-Fludir-Gullfoss-Geysir-Laugarvatn-Pingvellir-the interior route the Kandidalur-Husafell-Reykholt-Borgarnes-Olafsvik-around the white-capped mountain Snaefellsjokull-Arnarstapi-Borgarnes-Akranes-Reykjavik-Keflavik. Here are some photos, we shot at that time:

If you’re really enthousiastic about this island by now, Michiel did another bike trip on Iceland in 2002: Netherlands-Denmark (by train)-Faroe Islands (by boat)-Seydisfjordur on Iceland (by boat)-Egilsstadir-Hofn-Kirkjubaejarklaustur-Landmannalaugur-Geysir-the interior route the Kjolur-Akureyri-Husavik-Akureyri-Reykjavik. Last stage (A to R) was by bus.
