Riding a fatbike, in the dark, in Iceland is something that few people have experienced. Cold weather is fine when you stay warm by pedalling. We reach areas with no other people in sight. In a nature reserve well away from any busy roads. The northern lights have their own way. Sometimes they are strong, sometimes they are not visible. When they light up the sky it is an experience like no other. To witness northern lights away from any crowds is unique. Silence and the only sound to be heard is when your guide pours some hot chocolate to enjoy while taking a break from biking. The nature reserve is our playground. The fatbikes with bikelights our tools. We go far and beyond to reach the best spots.

Iceland gravel roads are unique. The hard packed lava soil make them the perfect playground for gravel bikes. Iceland highlands are impassable for most of the year. The short summer of 8 weeks allows for a chance to explore the backroads that few have ridden. This trip is not about comfort: This is about pushing boundaries. Pedalling through. Expect sun, rain and wind on any day, even in the same 15 minutes. The hard work will be rewarded with stunning views and great meals. If you love biking and have a heart for adventure this trip is for you.
