Iceland motorcycle holiday

Iceland is known as an attractive holiday destination for motorcyclists and is a perfect destination to combine driving pleasure with unforgettable nature experiences. 

The great Iceland experiences already start when you drive ashore in the little town of Seyðisfjörður on the Northern Eastern part of Iceland and up the high mountain before you reach the Ring Road from Egilsstaðir. 

The Icelandic road system is extensive and easy to navigate. Highway no. 1, commonly known as the Ring Road, is the most travelled route around Iceland, and you can travel around the whole island on a regular motorcycle. Most major highways are paved, but it may surprise travellers to learn that a large portion of the Icelandic road system is made up of gravel roads.

Best time of year for motorcycle touring in Iceland

The best time to visit Iceland with your motorcycle is between May and September with snow being less likely. The weather is capable of changing rapidly and frequently and a sunny day can soon turn to mist and rain, or even snow! Strong winds can also hinder your ride and care should be taken. Be sure to pack wet weather gear and be prepared for downpours. 

Filling stations

Automated self-service filling stations are operated in all towns and along major highways. Distances between filling stations may vary. Make sure you have enough fuel to reach the next one.
