Iceland Backcountry ADV Tour — Jun. 19-26, 2024

A full-service, guided tour in the "Land of Fire and Ice."

Published on 12.11.2023

Iceland is an off road rider’s paradise. Often referred to as the “land of fire and ice,” the island sports 32 active volcanoes and the biggest glaciers in Europe. Located in the North Atlantic, Iceland is the perfect destination for adventure motorcycle touring.

The MotoDiscovery Iceland Backcountry tour starts out in Reykjavik, but moves quickly into the mountains in the direction of Þórisvatn, Iceland’s largest lake. The scenery begins to fill your view quickly, encountering crashing waterfalls—including Háifoss—which is the second highest in the country.

From Jökulheimar the ride will start going through the Veiðivatnahraun Lava Field and the Central Highlands of Iceland. Then it’s on to Mt. Hekla, one of Iceland’s most active volcanoes. The entire Fjallabak region of Iceland takes its name from the numerous wild and rugged mountains with deep valleys. Riding there is like being in the “Lord of the Rings” story.


The MotoDiscovery Iceland Backcountry ADV Tour is a more intensive off road itinerary, so it will be supported by a follow up vehicle providing riders with elevated confidence and convenience. The group size is limited to eight riders plus staff.

What’s included

  • 7 nights’ accommodations (double occupancy)
  • Transfers to and from Reykjavik to tour base at Selfoss
  • All breakfasts, lunches and dinners on riding days
  • Icelandic tour leaders on motorcycle
  • Support /luggage vehicle with Icelandic MotoDiscovery tour specialist
  • Rental of either KTM 690 Adventure or 701 Husqvarna motorcycle and insurance
  • Motorcycle fuel
  • Pre-tour Information packet
  • Maps and GPS waypoints
  • MotoDiscovery apparel gift
