Iceland 2013
 
Hey Folks,

Question for ya---several of us are considering a 6 to 7 day ride of Iceland, but are challenged a bit with finding a motorcycle tour/rental company that will respond. Maybe these companies are seasonal---I don't know. However, we are looking at either a guided tour or a basic motorcycle rental company that we can trust. Does anyone have any suggestions for us?

I'm glad that I'm not the only one; I tried contacting Biking Viking about a month ago without any reply...

Blue,

Yes, that was one of the companies that I contacted and didn't get any response. I have messages into two others...if I get a response I'll post it here for you.

Regards,
John

Edelweiss
 
I did a tour with Edelweiss this summer. My guide told me that they can do custom trips just about anywhere. Probably not cheap, but first rate.

Thanks John. I did one as well with Edelweiss (the Pyrenees in September) and will ask my contact there. Good call.

Regards,
John

I'm running into the same problem--I can't seem to get anyone from the adverstising Iceland Motorcycle Tour/Rental companies.

My Group is in Germany though and we may just ship are bikes over--anyone have any experience with shipping your bike(s)? My fear is that my bike will show up in a box of broken pieces on the other end...

Motoxplorers does tour of Iceland every year. They are based out of Lisbon, good people to deal with. I have wanted to do this. I think it would be easy to set something up with them. I have used thier bikes in Portugal. Neduro does a big bike trainling class for them in the spring. When discussing this with them, they wanted to put together a tour for U.S. riders. What is your time frame? I would love to do it, but always hard for me to plan accurate days off from my job.

Iceland's on our 'to do' list for this year. Have you gotten any responses yet?

I guess the thread is dead.
