After your arrival in the capital you will be met by the expedition team, which will hold a briefing explaining the days ahead. Dinner and accommodation will be provided in Reykjavik giving you the fuel and rest to embark on your trip. You will be escorted into the centre of the country by a heavily modified trucks, depending on conditions this can take 4-6 hours on single track roads, travelling on GPS, before reaching our highland cabin oasis.
Your accommodation for the next days is located in the middle of some of the tallest highland peaks, it goes by the name of Kerlingarfjöll and has been described by many as a hidden gem of the island. Each morning our snowmobile fleet will be waiting with an expedition guide to take you around the surrounding mountains to specially selected zones based on ability and snow conditions. The high manoeuvrability and speed of these machines will enable you to travel large distances with ease and access mountains that would take days to reach any other way.
These transport machines will be left at the bottom of our selected lines where we will unpack our touring equipment and begin our accent of the mountain. The rewards fromclimbing the peak yourself not only improve you knowledge of snowpack but enhance the experience of summiting and seeing the icecapsthat dominate the interior. All thats left is to ride your line and repeat. Your days in the highlands will be spend exploring the terrain by , finding places that few had the access to ride and returning to the safety of thecabinswhere dinner will be waiting everyday. If accessible, your guides will take you to geothermal hot springs during the course of your stay.
It might be possible to witness the Aurora Borealis January - March. April and May will offer longer days where we can utilise the benefits of the ever approaching Midnight Sun. When your time in Kerlingarfjöll has come to an end you will be transported back to Reykjavik to share memories of the expedition over dinner and plan the next adventure over some Icelandic beers.
