Encounter dramatic volcanic landscapes
Iceland is one of the most geologically active countries on earth. The landscape is defined by vast black lava fields, towering glaciers, thundering waterfalls and erupting geysirs. The network of country roads provides an excellent framework for our two-wheeled journey, giving us access to some of the most impressive places in the south of the island including the infamous Eyafjallajokull Volcano, the colourful mountains of Landmannalaugar and the thundering Skogarfoss Waterfall. There are also a few welcome stops in thermal baths, a key part of Icelandic tradition. Add to this the changing landscapes and natural phenomena and you have an unforgettable week's ride.
