it seems there is no thread for 2013 yet, so who's going this year?
After our trip in 2011 I'm in love with this island, so I'm considering a return. Nothing is carved in stone yet, but my idea would be July / August by ferry from Danmark with 2 weeks on Iceland and a focus on the highlands. So far, my vacation hasn't been approved yet.
Last time we were struggling a bit with the heavyweight GS bikes, so I'd bring a 650 this time. For the river crossings it is saver to have company, but 2 long days on the ferry should be more than enough to find someone to team up.
Have a look at our ride report
to see what I'm talking about
Oh, this year's bike has much less dead weight, even with full camping gear:
