A more road friendly, rewarding and memorable MotoDiscovery Icelandic adventure riding experience

TOUR CHARACTER

The Magical Iceland Western Fjords Tour is categorized as ADVENTURE LIGHT. Traveling the island nation demands riding at least some well-maintained gravel roads, easily managed by any experienced motorcycle touring enthusiast. To be clear, this is NOT a challenging off-road event. Riding the Western Fjords is a tour well designed for couples or single riders, with a selection of BMW GS series motorcycles perfectly suited for the task. Riders can expect lightly traveled roads, a moderately paced itinerary with time to experience beauty and wonder of this unique part of the world. Groups are limited to 10 motorcycles. Early reservations are encouraged.

The Magical Iceland Western Fjords Tour is an ideal platform for a MotoDiscovery Private Customed Tour, a simple questionnaire can begin that process. Contact us today.

 

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Iceland. It is often referred to as the “land of fire and ice”. With 32 active volcanoes and the lagest glaciers in Europe, this large North Atlantic island rests just south of the Arctic providing the perfect destination for adventure motorcycle touring.
  • Arriving in the capital city of Reykjavik, you’ll have one night to explore the town and get your rhythm after your flight, about 5 1/2 hours out of New York, with numerous non-stop flights from major USA hubs.
  • From Langaholt we will ride around the peninsula, a beautiful ride in the shadows of the Snæfellsnesjökull to Hvammsfjörður. Short, optional riding explorations can be organized or spend a relaxing afternoon meandering the bay.
  • Riding the fjord lands, we will have a chance to look for Puffins, and if time permits, anglers can have a try at trout fishing.  Natural hot springs are common in this geothermic region, the perfect soothing relief after a great day of riding.
  • In Heydal, we’ll offer an opportunity for an optional ride on the famous Icelandic Horse. Off road riding enthusiasts may want to seek more a more challenging adventure, a route will be offered for those wanting to get a little dirty!
  • We head inland to see Borgarfjörður, Hraunfossar and the famous lake at Þingvellir, a National Park area of natural, cultural and historical significance, a fitting destination to close out the Magical Iceland Wester Fjords tour by MotoDiscovery.
  • You’ll encounter places with landscape right out of Game Of Thrones and history tied into the Viking culture that first settled Iceland in the 9th century.
  • The service. It is a MotoDiscovery tradition. This more road friendly tour will be supported by a follow up vehicle providing riders with elevated confidence and convenience. Your load is lightened on the bikes, with luggage carried in the chase vehicle.
  • Wildlife will certainly be encountered. Arctic fox, maybe a mink and a variety of bird and marine life, will live up to Iceland’s reputation as an island focused on preserving nature.
  • Multilingual and knowledgeable MotoDiscovery staff promise to make this more than just a motorcycle ride. And we keep groups small, limited to only 10 motorcycles.
  • The Magical Iceland Western Fjords Road Tour is a great platform for designing a unique private custom tour just for you and your friends. Interested? It can begin here with this simple Custom Tour Questionnaire.
