So. Rad. Much. Envy.

Looks like a must ride. Time to start checking flights and shipping.

Great pics, we were in Iceland in 2010 and seeing your pics brings back great memories, we did pretty much the same circuit.

Great ride report and spectacular scenery!

My wife was just asking where I plan to ride next year and I think I have my answer.

Nice job with the photography also.

Cheers,

Thanks for all of the cool comments about the pics; I was trying out a new lens and I'm quite impressed.

Thank you for a simple but insightful (terrain) report....

Wow, that looks good!!!!
You, sirs, were VERY VERY lucky with weather on that pass!

Absolutely cracking! I'm looking at going next year. Did you cane it round the island as you only had a week or was it steady away?

You can do big miles on the ring as it's decent road, light traffic and there's lots of daylight but we took it very steady:

Day 1; Sey­isfj÷r­ur via Dettifoss to ReykjahlÝ­ - 159 miles (28 off tarmac)
Day 2; ReykjahlÝ­ via Akureyri to VarmahlÝ­ - 125 miles
Day 3; VarmahlÝ­ via the Kjalvegur to ┴rnes - 157 miles (104 off tarmac)
Day 4; ┴rnes via Hßifoss and the Fjallabakslei­ to Hvolsv÷llur - 134 miles (50 miles off tarmac)
Day 5; Hvolsv÷llur to H÷fn - 220 miles
Day 6; H÷fn via SnŠfell to Hallormssta­ur - 223 miles (12 off tarmac)
Day 7; Hallormssta­ur via the HlÝ­arvegur to Egilssta­ir - 165 miles (50 off tarmac)
Day 8; Egilssta­ir to Sey­isfj÷r­ur - 17 miles

Great pics!

I've heard it's one of the most expensive countries in the world to visit...

But it may be worth it!
