9 Days of Bikepacking around the West Fjords of Iceland with two friends Nick and Dave. From South to North taking in two peninsulas in all types of weather, good and bad!
I recommend having your bike fixed by a father and son team of plumbers in Bogarnes! Seriously though - what life savers these guys were when my rack mounts broke clean off the frame and Nick and Dave (accountant and Dr of Engineering respectively) strategized on the repair approach.
Anyway - wet, foggy and not too pleasant of a day...we made it in the end and the campsite was lovely
Get recommendations on the best single tracks, peaks, & plenty of other exciting outdoor places.
SERIOUSLY! What an epic day! It had it all - amazing breakfast, Dave drying his clothes from poles off the back of his bike, stunning lakes and lava fields - the famous beach where the Islandic fishermen wannabe’s performed initiation tests and in the end...Dave completely caving on the last climb only to be rescued by jelly babies.
grundarfjordur is pretty special though - we camped in a football field...but that sunset!!!!
