Self-supported bikepacking routes planned by local experts

Your Self-Supported Ride + Our Local Knowledge

Welcome to the Westfjords — we call this place home, and we can’t wait to share it with you.

Out here, weather can be harsh and unpredictable, but a hot pot and warm hospitality is never too far away.

With small towns, lots of open space, and limited services, biking in Iceland can be quite a challenge if you’re not prepared. Our passport routes mix self-supported riding with local knowledge so you can ride assured that you have the best information and support to make your tour successful. All you have to do is bring your bike, or rent one from our partner agency the Fjord Hub!
