The long fjords and river valleys flanked by alpine mountains make this a collection of outstanding rides. The midnight sun, a drier climate, and shelter from prevailing winds produce more fertility than expected; the vegetation includes flourishing botanical gardens in Akureyri and trees like nowhere else in Iceland. Akureyri – the gem of the north at the end of Eyjafjordur, is also known for the blonde beauty of its people.
On the way from there to Lake Myvatn we stop in the European whale watching capital, Husavik, for an night in guesthouses just outside town, with views of snow-capped mountains across the fjord. The approach to the lake takes you through marshland peppered with small lakes and ponds, which attract more birds than anywhere else in Iceland, and can make the approach to Myvatn very memorable. The ride around the lake itself is particularly interesting because of the many green pseudo craters and islands. On day seven, you can visit Jokulsar Canyon National Park and Dettifoss – the biggest waterfall in Europe. The route back to Reykjavik will take you across Iceland’s interior – a mountain and desert road between huge glaciers – a fitting end to this fantastic adventure.

Testimonials:

"What a fascinating country. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our trip. The north is beautiful and much greener than I have expected. Even the weather turned out to be better, cool but not too cold. The scenery made up for it big time. There were many highlights - watching the midnight sun, standing on the continental rift, biking through the candera area, pseudo craters, waterfalls, geysers and hot springs and driving through the interior, finding a little oasis in the middle of nowhere. Thanks to all of you for making this happen. It is a great tour and amazing country with lots to offer." - Trudene & Derrick, ON.
