    I propose you a motorcycle trip to the Faroe Islands and Iceland for a maximum of 3 people. I am going for sure. I have already bought a ferry ticket. I am looking for comrades. The asphalt, gravel and light enduro trip.

    I have been driving for about 8 years. I'm 38 myself. I'm looking for men and girls. I have quite a strong temperament. During my trips I am brave, in general, if there are three options to choose from 3 options, I will probably vote for the most difficult one or second one.

    I like traveling far from civilization from civilization, sleeping in tant, be close to the nature, make some trekking as well so be prepared. In everyday life I do a lot of sports and travel as much as possible. No family. Freelance in properties branch. I like being at home, honesty, spontaneity, efficiency, independence. A sociologist, photographer, and entrepreneur by experience and education.


    • The total cost of tip is 3000-4000 euro - I count everything with surplus so that there are no unpleasant surprises resulting from underestimating the costs.

    • Duration approximately one month from 07/27/2021 to 08/25/2021 or less. Return ferries are approximately weekly so you can decide letter. Now I do not know when I will coming back. It depends on how I like it, what the weather will be like, etc. etc. I assume to go back on August 25 or August 19

    • Medium and large Enduro motorcycles with 80/20, 50/50 tires

    • Sleeping in tents in the wild and on campsites, especially in National Parks

    • Eating 80% on your own. In bars, max once a day

    • The purpose of the trip is to explore wild areas, nature, national parks, contacting other tourists and Icelanders, off-road.

    • We do not stick to asphalt, a lot of gravel with stones.

    • Zero museums or exhibitions (maybe if we see something special)

    • I don't drink alcohol at all, so if you like heavy drinking, I don't recommend myself

    • When it comes to speed limits etc. we respect them enough not to be punished I mean, we driving faster.

    • The agreement between us is such that we go together to make friends, help each other in any problems with motorcycles and cooperate in all matters of the trip - union, pact. We exchange skills, we value the good of the group. We vote for disputes. If there are two of us, we draw a lot.

    Departure schedule:

    1. 28.07.2021 Departure from Poland

    I am starting from Wrocław. We can start form here or meet in Hirtshal, Denmark, where the ferry departs from.

    2. 31.07.2021 at 13.30 meeting in the port in Denmark, Hirtshal. At 3:30 PM, a ferry leaves for the Faroe Islands, Torshavn

    3. 01/08/2021 to 04/08/2021 - Torshavn, Faroe Islands, we spend there. Three days must be enough to visit the islands.

    4. 04.08.2021 to 05.08.2021 Ferry from Faroe Islands, Torshavn at 6.00 p.m. to Iceland, Seydisfjordur 8.30

    5. August 5, 2021 - August 25, 2021 Traveling in Iceland

    6. August 25, 2021 Ferry from Istnadia Seydisfjordur to Denmark, Hirtshals

    7. 27/08/2021 - 29/08/2021 return home from Denmark, Hirtshals

    I choose the return ferry to Denmark directly, probably on August 25, 2021 they are also earlier, for example on August 19 or later. When buying tickets through the Faroe Islands in Iceland, I do not immediately buy a return ticket, because I do not know how I will like it and what the weather will be like. I don't want to be pressured by a return ticket. However, everyone decides for themselves when they want to come back. The weather forecast for August is good. Most sunny days, temperature 12-15Co. However, this is changing quickly, I advise you to be prepared for at least 2-5 Co

    Framework program of the trip

    However, he never plans in too much detail. However, if there is no plan, then a cool place is overlooked and they realize we passed it yesterday. I like wilderness, nature, but I also like fancy food, hot springs of saunas, etc. I am such a luxurious bushman. I have a lot of travel experience.

    After the initial analysis, I prepared a map of the points that I partially want to visit. These are in national parks, craters, waterfalls, deserts. So far, because the map is still looking for more places and routes. I also care about an active volcano that spits lava (Fagradalsfjall), I check its activity on a regular basis. When he writes these ads, he is very active again. The map and the plan are still being developed.

    Here I provide a link to it https: // ...

    If you have any suggestions for places, please let me know


    Here he lists some, from my point of view, not obvious to everyone but necessary things that must be had.

    • Complete COVID 19 vaccinations at least 14 days prior to boarding the ferry

    • Medium motorcycle or enduro liquid (I think with a light type KTM 690R or Husqvarna 701 also cool)

    • Several seasons of on and off-road driving experience. Basic off-road experience (do you know how to get downhill correctly? How to climb it? Knowledge of loose ground under the wheels, appropriate clothing, motorcycle equipment, rain suit.

    • 50/50, 80/20 tires

    • Green card

    • A decent sleeping bag with 5-10 degrees of comfort and a good insulating mat.

    • Insurance of treatment costs, including accident insurance


    As I wrote at the beginning, the total cost of the trip is 3000-4000 euro, of which:

    • EUR 1500 for the return ferry.

    • Fuel 1.62EUR per liter per
