A never-done-before multi-sport crossing from North to South across the full gambit of Iceland’s magical and surreal interior

This is a World of fire and ice that you will never forget: A tough, satisfying and utterly unique adventure fit for the most hardy of souls.

This trip is never-done-before territory. It is an extremely audacious multi-sport crossing of the entirety of Iceland, starting in the far north and traversing right through the centre of the country, until reaching the south coast. Our sensational route passes between and beside numerous massive icecaps and dramatic mountains, all the while following the famous gravel roads, tracks and trails that thread through this land’s vast ash and lava fields.

Rivers are abundant here and numerous crossings will take place during the week, on bike, on foot or by boat. Significantly, the route must also encompass Iceland’s longest and largest river, the Pjorsa.

Cycling can be challenging, due to constantly changing weather, harsh gradients and mixed trail surfaces, though the occasional sections of mountainous single-track are absolutely and utterly World-class. The trekking is breath-taking, with our section taking in some of the famous Laugavegur Trail. On the River Pjorsa, rafting will also provide for some extremely exciting mileage.
