Hannes and Sandra took three weeks to string together two routes through Iceland, exploring its rugged beauty and sublime landscapes. Along the way, they made a film to document their trip. Watch it here and learn more about the route they took…

Hannes and Sandra spent three weeks immersed in Iceland, a country dominated by huge glaciers, ashen deserts, and mighty lava structures. The two crossed the island from north to south via the 344-mile (554-kilometer) Iceland Divide, then tacked on another route from our library, Landmannalaugar to Skógar, a 144-mile (232-kilometer) singletrack-heavy route. Along the way, they captured footage documenting their ride and Iceland’s breathtaking landscape. Watch it below, then scroll down for more on the route.

Iceland DivideJust below the Arctic Circle, situated between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates, a remote land emerges from the depths of the Atlantic Ocean, dominated by huge glaciers, ashen deserts, and mighty lava structures. Here, along the fault line that crosses the island from north to south, the incessant work of fire and ice traced a route that runs through a world of immeasurable desolation and enthralling beauty, the Icelandic Highlands.
