GlobeBusters announces two motorcycling tours in Iceland

'The Arctic Desert' and 'Beyond the Wall' tours are 12 days long

GLOBEBUSTERS is adding two motorcycling tours in Iceland to its 2016 timetable.

Both ‘The Arctic Desert’ and ‘Beyond the Wall’ tours are 12 days long, so can be easily slotted into a busy calendar.

Highlights include exploring the vibrant down-town bars and restaurants of Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik; the Road to Hell (the volcanic crater near Askja) and the newly formed lava field of the 2014/2015 eruption.

Riders will also visit the largest glacier in Europe, Vatnajokull, familiar to fans of Game of Thrones as Beyond the Wall and travel the deserted and twisty roads of Westfjords, the most remote and isolated part of Iceland, and enjoy dips in geothermally-heated pools to unwind after a day’s ride.

Included in the cost of the trip is bike freighting to and from Iceland. All we need to do is drop our machine off at the shipping agent in the UK, fly ourselves to Reykjavik and our bike will be waiting at the hotel for when we arrive. This avoids having a long transit time from UK to Denmark and three days on a ferry via the Faroe Islands.

Also included is bed and breakfast accommodation, various activities, a GlobeBusters Tour Leader and a specialist Icelandic guide.

The group will be accompanied by a mechanic in a support vehicle.

There’s also the option to hire a BMW R1200 or F800 GS, at an additional cost.

Prices start from £3,695 for the Beyond the Wall tour, which is primarily on paved roads and takes place from 20th-31st July 2016.

The Arctic Desert tour takes place from 3rd-14th August 2016 and is a mix of paved and dirt roads.
