    Hello Guys!

    Sorry my English is not good enough for a long travelog about my journey to Iceland in Sept. ´18.[​IMG]
    But I collected some impressions in a video. I can say it was the trip of my life[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]



    Some pics from our trip you'll find here: https://www.flickr.com/gp/169401207@N06/MT30T9

    If someone has questions over this incredible beautiful area feel free to contact me[​IMG]

    Hope you enjoy it;

    Beautifully done video.
    Thanks for posting.
    I visited in 2016 and rode the Ring Road but rental company did not allow travel into the highlands.
    These aerial views give a different perspective than from the seat of a moto.
    Iceland is truly an amazing place.

    Thanks, Guys!

    I was 2 weeks on the Isle and 3 1/2 weeks on the road incl. 3 days on the Faroer Islands. Sure, i drove my own bike:D
    All other is unsportsmanlike:lol3
    We took the ferry from Hirtshals/Denmark. 2x 2 1/2 days on the Atlantic.

    3500km complete, 1500km on Iceland, 750km offroad:wings

    Regards;
    Stefan.

    Great capture of such an amazing landscape/seascape! One of my big regrets was not building the Faroes into my '14 itinerary after riding in Iceland and ferrying to Denmark on the Norrona with that tease stop in Torshavn.

    Hi Stefan,
    I will go this summer, June-July to Iceland and, on the way back to Denmark with a stop in Faroe.
    I appreciate a lot if you can share your trip around the island, eventually the stops or your comments... Perhaps you have them already presented somewhere. I mean, the map...

    Many thanks!
