Whether you are looking for a guided tour or want to go it alone on a self-guided tour or rental, a motorcycle tour in Iceland is an amazing experience that will at times take you out of this world.
We’re now taking bookings for May -Sept 2022. Get in early, especially if you’re thinking about August.
A guided motorcycle tour in Iceland really comes into its own when you want to get off the ring road and explore the gravel mountain roads of the interior. As mentioned above, the only way you can explore these roads is with a guide (or on your own bike). We offer three guided motorcycle tours in Iceland:
Iceland offers more than enough adventure, without having to venture off onto the F Roads and a self-guided motorcycle tour of Iceland is a relaxed and comfortable way to see the country. We offer two self-guided motorcycle tours in Iceland that can also be combined or altered depending on your needs:

For intrepid motorcycle travellers, Iceland’s treasures can be accessed by riding Route 1, aka the Ring Road. Volcanoes, glaciers, icebergs and waterfalls are just some of the sights on offer. Riding the circumference of pretty much the entire country, you’re likely to want to stop off every five minutes to get a better look at the stunning scenery.
The mountain roads, so called F-Roads, are a fantastic highlight of Iceland. They consist of everything; old tarmac roads, gravel roads, sand roads, fine rocks, big boulders, mud, dried up riverbeds, lava, fine lava sand, roads which are also rivers and everything in between. Sometimes you would be driving a road that starts as ‘normal’ gravel road, which has sections of fine lava sand and big boulders, crossing rivers, very rocky surface all on the same road. Plus there are a lot of river crossings in some parts of the country, small and enormous rivers. Be aware though that most motorcycle rentals in Iceland do not allow you to ride on these roads unless you are accompanied by a guide. Also, these roads are only open for a few months of the year over summer.
We offer self-guided tours with rentals between late May and mid-September. May is great for less crowds and spring landscapes, while July is the warmest month and not quite as busy as August. Early September is after the peak and can be great, but the weather tends to get a bit more unpredictable.The weather is capable of changing rapidly and frequently and a sunny day can soon turn to mist and rain, or even snow! Strong winds can also hinder your ride and care should be taken. Be sure to pack wet weather gear and be prepared for downpours. Note: the weather in Iceland can be extreme at any time of year and all care should be taken to stay on the right side of it.Share this tour
