This is a trip to seduce your senses!
From wild landscapes of glaciers, thermal springs, snow capped mountains to breathtaking coastal scenery and archaeological sites, our ‘Viking Tour’ visits three diverse landforms in the North Atlantic.
The biking is a mixture of off-road and on road ‘touring’. In Iceland we’ve four days of fantastic biking over rugged terrain before setting sail to the Faroes. Here no off-road biking is permitted but with jaw dropping coastal scenery accessed by quiet back roads who cares? Then its off to the Shetland Isle’s, another area of outstanding beauty with spectacular beaches, rolling heather hills and 5000 years of history all accessible on quiet roads and dirt tracks. With the summer sun illuminating the land and seascapes we can stay active longer so there’s plenty of time to explore and take in all the sights. This trip is dedicated to those who relish remote wide-open spaces, diverse scenery and abundant wildlife…and all to be experienced from the saddle!
