I got an interesting call the other day. It was from Bill Dutcher, the man behind the Touratech DirtDaze Adventure Rally. Both me (Mike / Ride2ADV) and Kim (Kim / Butterqwup) have been asked to give a presentation.
All about Iceland
We’ll be giving a presentation on the island nation of Iceland. We’ve ridden there twice and it’s one of our favorite ADV riding destinations. Iceland has it all. In a single day, you can travel over lush, but treeless green landscapes, ride through water crossings or travel through lunar-like surfaces. During the riding, you may see glaciers, geysers, and icebergs and Iceland’s famous natural hot springs.
Riding the paved Ring Road (Route 1) will give you a feel for this beautiful island nation. But for us, the best part of Iceland can be found on its dirt roads. Particularly for its “F” roads which we’ll talk about during our presentation. Traveling on dirt you can experience mountain roads with steep drop-offs or just ride serenely at near sea level.
Iceland also hosts many beautiful natural features like the highest waterfall in all of Europe, a superb wedding cake waterfall and the (in)famous Eyjafjallajökull volcano. It erupted in 2010 and provided the most disruption to air traffic since WW II.
We’ll have photos and video of some of the best places to travel in Iceland. We’ll also have lots of ADVRider swag to give away!
The Touratech DirtDaze Adventure Rally will be held at:
Suicide Six Resort
247 Stage Road
South Pomfret, VT 05067
We are presenting on Saturday, August 17 at 6:15 PM. If you can’t make our presentation, just come by. We’ll be hanging around most of the day.
We’ll have more details just before the event.
