Iceland – Fire and Ice 3FI


Experience largely unspoiled and pure nature on this tour through the Highlands of Iceland.

Iceland – the land of contrasts – is located just below the Arctic Circle and attracts visitors with its diverse nature and remote roads. On Iceland you will find it all: glaciers, steaming volcanoes, geysers and rolling hills with. Join us on this breath-taking motorcycle ride, get to know some outstandingly friendly people and experience the true meaning of “icy hot“, Icelandic style.

Our Triumph adventure begins in Reykjavik, before we head for the Highlands spotting the first geysers and gorgeous waterfalls along the way. Once we arrive in the North, we will set out on the most famous road in Iceland – the Ring Road or Hringvegur, as the locals call it. Dettifoss is just one of the amazing natural wonders we see en route and as we continue the roads turn from paved to gravel and the area gets more and more remote.

Though the roads invite us to keep rolling, the opportunity to take some pictures of the biggest glacier in Europe, the Vatnajökull, just cannot be missed. We will then ride back to the coast, once again via the Ring Road to arrive back in Reykjavik.

Iceland - Fire and Ice

I was looking for a tour being different and found Edelweiss' trip to Iceland. This is a place that seems to be stuck in a different time: Continental plates rubbing against each other, glaciers at close proximity, geysers spouting everywhere, spectacular waterfalls, lakes and lagoons, volcanic rock formations all over the island, black beaches, bubbling volcanoes, weather that changes every hour and the friendliest people you will ever meet. If Brontosaurus came around the next corner it would not be a surprise at all! Michael - our tour guide - had encyclopedic knowledge of this place and provided us with fascinating facts and explanations throughout our journey. The riding was excellent and the carefully chosen routes crisscrossed through Iceland rather than circumnavigating. It provided some off-road sections that took us to places where not many tourists venture. The reward was some amazing scenery and the only challenge was to avoid stopping every few minutes to take more photos of the spectacular sights around us. This was my fourth Edelweiss tour and as always the planning and organization was meticulous from start to finish, including the choices for dinner menues to sample Icelandic specialities like shark, whale, puffin and the best fish soups you will taste anywhere. This tour has something for everybody, I can highly recommend it.
