Posted June 2nd, 2012 - 6:31 pm by from Warsaw, Poland (Permalink)
Hello guys! :)

I with my friend Monica (http://www.couchsurfing.org/people/moniash/) will cycle around Iceland on 1st - 29th of July. We start from Keflavik, then Reykjavik and ride following road No. 1 moving counterclockwise, through inter alia: Dyrhólaey, Jökulsárlón, Seyðisfjörður, Mývatn, Húsavík, then through Kjölur road (Interior) come back. We except about 1800km, 4 weeks.

Exact route is on website about our trip, there is also more details: http://www.en.aroundiceland.pl/about-trip

If someone want to join us at some stretch - please message!:)

We are very optimistic, open minded and easy going. During our expedition we want to meet local people, get to know their lifestyle and culture, stay for a while for drink some tea or just talk, exchange some souvenirs from our country. So if you are on the way and want to see us – please contact us! :)

I won't be there but I found these tour notes somewhat helpful while I was at work yesterday.

Hi Bart,
Im a round the world cyclist and will begin my cycling in the european continent a week from now starting in Iceland. I will spend around 10 weeks in Iceland. Maybe we can cycle for some distance in Iceland?

Woow great! It's my dream to cycle around the world... For sure we can meet and cycle together a while, do you have some plan of your trip?

Hi again Bart,
Surely, I plan to cycle in Iceland from end to end, covering even the highlands and all the interior part, estimating around 2600km and will do it very slowly in 10 weeks. Lets keep in touch, this is my email, zahariz@gmail.com

Ill arrive Keflavik International Airport on 11th June and will leave to Scotland (maybe by ferry?) somewhere end of August and plan to cross the European continent from there towards Easter Europe. Keep in touch!

Such a good news! Of course we should meet and we will do it. Probably your pace of cycling could be faster than our, but it doesn't matter. We land in Kef at 5PM 1st of July, then want to go to Reykjavik, be there at the evening and spend a night, and in the morning hit the ground running to southside by Ring Road. And we also want to take a bath in every possible hot spring on the way:)

How can we contact each other?
