    MSI Cycle Southern Iceland

    Fascinating country, scenery of Glaciers, Geysirs, Waterfalls and wonderful sunsets. A bit expensive for accommodation and £8 for a beer!! ( buy some at the airport on arrival). The cycling was relatively easy, only 1 real climb on the final day but the wind made it harder, I personally would have like to have cycled a bit around Fjallabak instead of spending all day in the bus. The weather was great for us, sunny, no rain, a bit windy, quite warm but be prepared for anything!

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The scenery, particularly the Geysir as it was the 1st time I have seen anything like that. Having a hot thermal bath at the end of the day.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Kjartan was knowledgeable and friendly if a little laid back which was OK by me but may not suit everybody. AND he had spent some time in my home town of Scarborough learning English when he was a teenager!!

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Try to stay up late a couple of times after midnight to see the sunset.

    Cycle Southern Iceland

    This was my first cycling holiday, at first I was not sure what was in store but by the end of the trip I left wanting more. Spectacular scenery, clean,clear air, sparkling rivers and streams, dramatic waterfalls. Miles and miles of un spoilt vistas, sometimes without a sign of mankind in sight apart from us. Dramatic landscape with the most amazing colours.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Each day was so inspirational for me from the corrugated farm buildings stood isolated in the vast landscape to the beautiful swaths of blue lupins at the roadside. The colours and formations of the glacier were like nothing I have seen before with the blackness from the lava dust. The glacial ice our guide collected for us was a lovely special addition to our gin &amp; tonic back at the hotel.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    I thought Kjartan was an excellent group leader. He was very supportive of my first day and sorted out a problem with my bike straight away. He was warm and friendly with a good sense of humour. He certainly wanted us to get the most out of the holiday as possible and tried to accommodate everyone.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    We were really lucky with the weather, apart from a strong head wind at times. I think this is what possibly makes it a more strenuous ride rather than the roads. So come prepared, the weather can be very changeable. Have a go at all the experiences offered.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Don't worry if you are a beginner , I was in a group of mixed abilities and didn't feel at any time that I was out of my depth. You always have the option to take a bus ride if it all gets a bit too much . We loved our green bus and the hard working driver.

    Southern Iceland by bike

    The best way to see and experience Iceland - made even better by an awesome leader, Kjartan

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Climbing the killer hill, cycling in the rain, the headwind on the first day of cycling, seeing the volcanos and the volcanic landscapes, cycling to the tourist hot spots and feeling very smug

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Awesome - a smile for everything and everybody. Told us about where we were going, what to expect, helped the slower riders, mended a puncture, cooked the bbq, answered all our questions and made a great video of the trip.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Bring cycle gear for all weathers. Make sure you know how to draft in a group

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    take a camera with a wide angle and telephoto lenses. Relax in the hot tubs

    Cycling Southern Iceland

    Showcase of natural beauty of all sites around southern Iceland.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    1. Tackling the huge hill on our last riding day by 3/4 of riders. 2. Much needed soak in hot springs, hot tubs, cold plunge, etc. after a day of riding. 3. Amazing gourmet dinners especially the BBQ at the mountain hut. 4. Watching Iceland vs. Portugal Eurocup final in local hotel pub.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Well organized, personable, cheerful, knowledgeable &amp; enthusiastic.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Need to clarify with Exodus if sleeping bags will be provided at mountain hut. Exodus most recent trip notes stated not required but group leader had older trip notes that stated it was required. Our group leader made a phone call and had brand new sleeping bags delivered to us on time.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Cycling is a great and more intimate way of exploring Iceland or anywhere else in the world, and healthier too. Totally recommend it.

    Stunning Scenery

    Stunning scenery - glaciers, waterfalls, mountains. Wonderful swimming both in rivers and pools. Good cycling terrain although some roads were very busy. Accommodation was mostly shared facilites but comfortable with very good food

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Swimming in the hot river in the rain

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Very well organised particularly with regard to lunches. Coped well with the wide spread of ability in the group

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Be prepared for very strong winds and cool temperatures even in August. Overshoes will stop your feet getting soaked. Have a large bag on the bus as you need to change clothing and have swimming gear to hand

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Although listed as grade 4 there was only one hill all week

    Cycle Southern Iceland

    It was an amazing trip, it helped me to remember how good life can be.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    cycling in the rain with strong wind - it made me feel alive and the waterfalls.... in particular the most secluded ones

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Excellent! He was very passionate about Iceland, very professional and very motivating!

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    It rains! Bring a lot of rain protection equipment. Gloves are indispensable.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    It would be helpful to give more details about the equipment to bring in the trip notes. Gloves should be in, more waterproof clothes. Even if the list in the trip notes already mentioned that waterproof equipment would be advisable it should be a little clearer (waterproof jacket,waterproof gloves, waterproof trousers and maybe also waterproof shoes). In my case, I was lucky that our group leader had some additional clothes to share. And a pillow, for the night spent in the hut.

    Cycle Southern Iceland

    7 Days of great companionship, breath taking views and outstanding hospitality. The landscape is constantly changing, drivers were extremely courteous, giving cyclists a wide berth were ever possible.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Conquering the steep climb approaching Vic! And then of course the fun of the downhill into Vic. That was a beautiful day with the most incredible blue skies, the amazing black volcanic beach and the startling green of the country side.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    We had a fantastic group leader, he was knowledgeable regarding the geology and history of the areas we cycled through. He really supported a positive group dynamic and made everyone feel comfortable and part of the group. Our shuttle driver was also excellent and we were always happy to see the "green biscuit bus" on the horizon for tea and hobnobs!

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Be prepared for wind and rain. These were only issues on the first day(windy) and the last day(rainy) Every other day was gorgeous, blue sky and warm temps - make sure to bring your swimsuit for the fabulous "Hot Pots"

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Iceland was a terrific experience - the people were wonderful, the country was gorgeous and we felt safe and well looked after.

    Cycling Southern Iceland

    This is an amazing trip! You cycle through the most stunning landscape; passing ancient glaciers, rainbow filled waterfalls, and volcanos that are waiting to show their might! You see black sand beaches, puffins, the most photogenic ponies, and if you're lucky and look really carefully you might see the Icelandic elves. You can spend a week learning to pronounce Eyjafjallajökull (badly)! You feast on local salmon and lamb, and stay in guest houses with a warm welcome.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    After a great day in the saddle, soothing the muscles in the hot springs of volcanic water in the middle of nowhere.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Kjarten our leader was fantastic. He volunteers with the Icelandic mountain rescue team, so not only did you know that he could handle any eventuality, but he was knowledgable and passionate about Icelandic history and volcanoes and had plenty of great stories. Did you know that volcanoes are all women! Nothing was too much trouble for him and our driver, Geirandan.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    We were very lucky with the weather, and had five days of clear blue skies and just one day that was a bit wet. You definitely need to be prepared for all weather eventualities, and not mind getting a bit wet. Lots of our group had read the previous reviews about waterproof socks. Verdict was that cheap versions are no use, and the jury was out on more expensive ones. I didn't have any, and wasn't convinced!

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    This is a wonderful trip and a great way to see some of the awesome sights of Iceland. I met some fabulous, really inspiring people, and really hope to visit the country again.

    Cycling southern Iceland

    Great place , fantastic guides and real weather.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Being at the place where the Techtonic plates are separatting and our marvellous guide explaining it all to us.

    Wrap up warm and enjoy the fantastic climate and scenery.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    The bikes needed some attention and would have benefited from a good service. Heavy mountain bikes were not the best for the road cycling, but it aided our fitness no end !

    Iceland in June

    A great trip taking in the most famous sights of Iceland. You get to see some of the main tourist attractions (waterfalls, geysers etc) but for most of the time you are cycling along quiet remote roads. If the tour leader is anything like ours they will also give you an insight into the country, its geography and people.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The whole landscape of Iceland is pretty inspirational!

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Fantastic! Petur and Bene were both amazing and were very organised and friendly as well as being very passionate and knowledegable about their home country.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    The weather in iceland is very changeable (rain, wind, temperature) and so definitely bring a range of clothing espacially warm and waterproof kit. You will be able to add and remove layers on the minibus at frequent intervals. Remember to bring a sleeping bag for the night in the mountain hut and a swimming costume as there are many opportunities for bathing in natural hot springs or those at public baths. Prices in Iceland are currently probably double that in the UK but once you leave Reykavik there are few places to spend money except the occasional snack or gift. Most of the accommodation is quite basic (B&amp;B and hostels) with shared bathrooms and showers (fine with me).

    CYCLE SOUTHERN ICELAND

    This was a brilliant holiday. you see the key sites in Iceland combined with great cycling on nice bikes. 

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The vast waterfalls, the geysers, the trip out to the mountain lodge. but the most inspirational moment was watching the puffins on the edge of a black cliff swooping down to the sea where the waves crashed onto a black sand beach. It was like being on the edge of the world

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Kristian was an exceptional tour leader. He was knowledgeable entertaining and fun as well as being extremely organised and prepares a great barbecue

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Buy waterproof socks! It will rain on you in Iceland and these really work

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Do this trip!

    CYCLE SOUTHERN ICELAND

    Stunning scenery, challenging weather, friendly Icelanders.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The scenery is truly pre-historic. No wonder NASA trained for the moon landing there. The hot springs at Eldja. 

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Kjartan and Mel were fantastic. This was their first cycling tour as they were stepping in for the usual guide and they did a brilliant job. Oscar the driver is a real character. They made a great team. They are great ambassadors for Iceland. We had very mixed weather but they kept us smiling during the rain and wind.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Icelandic weather is very changeable even in summer. We had 50/50 wet and dry days so make sure your water proofs are good! It can get cold too, especially with the wind. So extra layers are essential. For those who usually do the single supplement. Most of the accommodation is shared bathrooms and showers. On the last day there was one toilet/shower per floor.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    We were very lucky with the group and guides. Iceland's weather gods had some fun! A great country to visit. Unfortunately Exodus changed the accommodation for our return to Reykjavik. The hostel was pretty poor and certainly not up to Exodus usual standards. We were given taxis vouchers as the hostel was a 20minute ride away but it was a real let down. I felt really sorry for our guides as they could see our disappointment.

    CYCLE SOUTHERN ICELAND

    This was a fantastic week full of fantastic landscapes; which highlighted a wonderful way to experience Iceland.  Our tour leader was fantastic, very aware of the group capabilities and adjusting our adventure as needed if needed.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Riding out to the hut off road in the highlands.  It was something I'll never forget!

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Kristjan was an excellent leader who took great care of the entire group.  He made sure everyone was safe and cared for.  He also cooks a mean barbeque!

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    The wind can be a killer, even though it's not terribly hilly the wind can be a challenge at times.  But it's worth it to push through it and keep on going.

    Cycling Southern Iceland

    This was a really great trip. I have not stopped smiling since I returned. Some of the cycling was challenging and can be weather dependent. We were lucky with the weather with one day of strong headwind in perfect sunshine and one afternoon of heavy rain. We had the perfect leader and a nice group who all got on well together. The sights of Iceland are amazing and not to be missed.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Our leader, Kjartan, was the biggest inspiration. Then came the lovely thermal soaks on most days, cycling in the heavy rain and the 'killer hill' on the last day.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Kjartan was simply the best. He was so inspirational. He was in tune with the strengths and weaknesses of the group. He showed us wonderful sights and told us the history and geology of Iceland over thousands of years. He became a true friend to us all. Thank you Kjartan.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Read all the trip notes carefully. Get fit with plenty of cycle rides. Work out and practice with your cycle clothing for different conditions. Have some good wet weather cycling clothes and overshoes. Don't forget your trunks and towel. This is a wonderful trip with sights you will never see again. Go for it, you will have no regrets.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    The roads can be busy. The traffic is good and respects cyclists. Have high visibility tops. I had my rear flashing light on most of the time. The communal mountain hut was fun. Go for it and enjoy it.
