Tour 2001 - A bike and a trailer

This was my second trip to Iceland, but my first four-week-cycling-tour. I had a trailer with me for the baggage, and on some pictures you can even see my bike. I would like to translate my long german report to english once, but as you can see, have not yet found the necessary time. However, I've prepared a short route map.

A short description of this route: I cycled right past Reykjavík to Þingvellir, over Kaldidalur and back to the coast. Then around the Snæfellsnes peninsula and onwards to the northern coast, around Vatnsnes. From Blönduós I started the Kjölur route through the highland and luckily had some company at the first part. During these first two weeks I had mostly good weather, but this changed when I came out in the south and cycled on to Landmannalaugar. I even took the bus to Kirkjubæjarklaustur to get back from there. After one day in Skaftafell (with rain) I had to turn back towards Keflavík airport, as I wanted to spend some days on the Vestmannaeyar islands. At these last few days even the weather got better again.
Alltogether I had an unforgettable trip, and as this cycling tour in Iceland was such a fun, I repeatedly came back with my bike.

Here you find all the 184 pictures I made on this trip... sorted by date... good luck... :) Back to my Icelandtravels
