The Fjallabak region translates to 'Behind The Mountains' and takes its name from a collection of rugged mountains which hold as much lore as they do beauty. The trails in this region are completely awesome for us to ride, you'll understand why. An experienced rider was asked how the sensation was and he said that this was the best country to ride of over 20 countries that he has explored on an endurance motorcycle, Iceland is just completely like National Geographic combined with Lord of The Rings, it just tops everything.

We'll ride to a very famous spot called Landmannalaugar or the Pools of The People as it would translate. These pools are comfortable as they are the perfect mix of hot and cold water coming together. There are many juicy and very scary stories linked to this place as it comes very dark in the night. Please ask your guides to share with you a scary story or two before you depart Landmannalaugar.

When we are full of energy and newfound wisdom from Landmannalaugar we'll head out to Tungnaá River which we'll ride along with which is a really fun track to ride. We'll ride up Tungnaá up to a place of so much visual beauty that words will never grasp how beautiful it is.

We'll come into contact with the glacier using special routes that allow us to see the coldest ocean you can think of called Langisjór. This lake which has a striking Langisjór that translates to Long Ocean was not discovered until recently as it is roughly accessible and totally magical.

After taking in this terrific and majestic scenery that will certainly leave you with incredible memories we'll head back down from this high and mighty location down to Skaftá River which we'll follow to a 60km long volcanic canyon. This canyon named Eldgjá which translates to Firecanyon literally was formed in the year 934 as one of the largest volcanic eruptions in Iceland took place.

Riding in this terrain is completely awesome, the experience is phenomenal. We'll ride the vast lava to a small town with an amazing history and breathtaking scenery.

The town Kirkjubæjarklaustur was miraculously saved as the townsfolk had gathered together into the towns church praying for a huge bed of lava flowing forth. This lava was headed straight at the town and stopped literally at the doorsteps of the church. The total area of this incredibly huge lava field was 565 square kilometers and it offers spectacular scenery as you'll witness as you ride it on the perfectly equipped motorcycles.

Fjaðrárgljúfur is a magnificent canyon carved over a long time by the fresh river running at its bottom. This scenery is worth to see and is very magical. We'll have a great time riding these incredibly stunning landscaped creating awesome memories for us to keep.

These rocks are huge basalt pillars rising high in the sea surrounded by a very dangerous coastline that no one ought to set the foot near.

You'll be guided by our professional guides with how to engage the Icelandic environment with full safety measures. The black beaches surrounding Reynisdrangar have a long history of literally breaking peoples legs and worse. So, be excited but careful at all times, to follow the guides instructions.

Skógarfoss is a waterfall you'll want to photograph as it is certainly a waterfall of the hall of fame. The area surrounding the waterfall has been recognized to be a host to many creatures others than humans and many stories exist that you may want the guides to tell you more of. Some stories go as far to claim that trolls were changed to stone by the sunlight. Don't hesitate to ask your guides for all kinds of information, they love to be the best host they can.
