I love Iceland - was there in the summer of 2001, but not on a bike. Your photos bring it right back and make me want to go again, but the right way this time!

Great report!

KimiNie,
lots of people I was on the ferry with raved about the F-35 and Hveravellir... Many headed there fast, skipping lots on the way...
What are your thoughts about this route?
Also, how did you feel about the bike?

Nice Pics

Has it always been that way? what do you guys use for firewood? Must heat with gas or oil. Is this the place where there is a girl behind every tree? Please don't make the US look like that. Nice bike.

Iceland has always looked 'this way' .... they are the biggest geo-thermal heat users in the world !

Thanks for sharing, great pics. I have been in the Reykjavik airport several times when flying from US to Europe and back, but never made it outside of the terminal. Thanks for your inspiration, next time I will rent a bike (http://www.bikingviking.is) and spend a few days exploring that amazing island.

After Highland road F 35 I headed to see some parts of Westfjords of Iceland. During this time (four days there) rain much but sometimes I manage take some photos.
