    I was in Iceland on August. For me it was like heaven of ADV-riding. Maybe I´ll go back next summer. I camped all nights. Price of fuel is same than in Europe and Finland. I often ate in good local fish restaurant and prices were not higher than in Finland. Good dinner and few beer maybe 30 euros. Its true that there is often cold. Sometimes I felt that Im Michelin Man with all clothes. But there is good warm swimming pools and hot pots :))

    Wonderful pictures. They really are very good and I see all of Páll Stefánsson´s photos so I know what good pics of Iceland look like. I can hardly wait to get backt there (proabably in April.) Of course I'm looking forward to Tempere Finland in July as well.

    Great fresh ride report. Thanks for sharing. Excellent photos of a part of the world we don't hear or see much of from here in Western Canada.
