Driving in Iceland
Driving in Iceland might be quite different from what you are used to. We recommend that you check safetravel.is where you will find descriptions of what you can expect and guidelines about how to handle different situations that might arise.
Travelling on a motorcycle
The routes, which are most suitable for motorcycles, are route 1, 5, 8 and 17. It is also possible to go into the highlands (route 3 and route 7) on a motorbike, but this is only for experienced drivers.
We recommend bringing along snow chains during the period outside June, July and August.
The routes in Iceland are fixed. In the event of fully booked accommodation during the high season (June, July and August), travellers may expect slight changes to the itineraries.
The Highland routes on your motorcycle
It is possible to drive the highland routes such as Sprengisandur, Behind the Mountains and the track to Askja if you have a good 4x4 enduro motorcycle (not tour motorcycle) and if you are very careful. For tour motorcycles, we recommend staying on the main roads and not driving through the highland, with the possible exception of the Kjölur track.
Here is some practical advice for highland driving
It is important to have a waterproof and shock-proof luggage system, a good chain and new tires. Particularly in the interior, it is best to use tires with a coarse enduro profile. There are stories about people who finished off a set of tires in 1800 km, because the gravel is sharp and destructive. It is very useful to bring a tool to measure the air pressure in the tires, a repair kit for flat tires and an extra tank for fuel, particularly if you also cook on fuel. Take care with packing: lids can easily be shaken off boxes, if they are not fixed well.
All in all, if you to do some thorough work beforehand and bring a big and tough motorcycle, it can be a wonderful adventure.
