Awesome tour. The days usually start not to early so no rushing in the morning. The guys bring you to places, which you could never find if you tried to go on your own. You see so manny stunning places in just one day that the time really runns slow and you can enjoy every moment of it.In the evening you will either stay in a mountain hut in the middle of nowhere or in a nice summerhouse. Besides all this you will get an awesome dinner and breakfast made in a icelandic style (it is really really tasty).

These are really wonderful people to work with. Our group has been excited about the upcoming 6-day ride for a long, long time. Unfortunately COVID has caused us to cancel at the last minute. Ride With the Locals was very understanding of the situation. They communicated well throughout the entire process and we can't wait to book again for 2021!

That sunny summer night in Fjallabak might be the closest to heaven I’ll ever be. Pulling up to the house to cold beer, Pink Floyd and the smell of roasting lamb was sheer bliss that I will never forget. It was a perfect end to a day full of adventure on Husqvarna Enduro 701’s, an adventure not just because of the riding, but because of the stunning beauty of this country, striking landscapes, volcanoes, blue lakes, wildflowers, stopping for coffee at the mountain hut (Landmannalaugar), rocky river crossings, Skuli’s “secret trail” and a wild ride down the canyon… it was just the right amount of challenge to make that golden trophy of Viking beer taste even better at the end of the day! Thank you, thank you, thank you to Skuli and Olafur for this captivating adventure, and for the serene finish to an unforgettable day. The best part of that moment was knowing it wasn’t over yet. The whole trip was a great balance of riding, sightseeing, action and relaxation. There was time to take in the sights, take photos, relax with coffee in the mornings, and of course, plenty of time on the bike! Details are well thought out, right down to the mobile hot spot Skuli had each night. Because, you know… Instagram or it didn’t happen! Skuli and Olafur make you feel like you are among friends, and not on a guided tour. Their passion for this beautiful country and their love of a good time on motorcycles shines through, making the trip even more enjoyable. Whatever you have to do to get to this place, do it! I had been dreaming of coming to Iceland for 15 years – not just to visit, but to RIDE. And this trip exceeded any expectations I had. I am overwhelmed looking back at at all , and all I can think of is coming back. But there will never be anything quite like the first time.

To experience Iceland’s beauty out of a motorcycle saddle is definitely a privilege. Though, be aware, such trip requires quite some endurance from the rider. Anybody who has ever wondered why these 701 Husqvarna motorcycles are called “enduro” will also understand that the meaning does not only come from the machine itself which easily absorbs just about any rugged terrain. We got to see beautiful nature; in a sense, riding through this environment makes you very much aware as being part of it all. You experience all elements; you see nature’s beauty at its best. The magnificent view on impressive volcano mountains, gracious glaciers and the mighty rivers sourcing out of them. Also, watch out for the sheep, cozily grazing the pastures and along the fjords you might sight whales. Simultaneously to this impressive scenery, you as a rider are constantly working on the microcosm ahead of your bike’s front wheel. Riding upright – your boots solidly on the foot pegs – lets you control the steering much better. In milliseconds you take decisions on how you want to master the grounds -- quite challenging and yet also very much enjoyable. This seven-day motorcycle tour was of great pleasure and it also gave me the feeling of having achieved something. It touched all my senses, and bones! My special thank goes to Skuli and Olafur who had carefully planned our tarmac and gravel roads. They have provided us with a well-balanced mix of magnificent landscape and awesome riding surface. The accommodation was well chosen and their assistance very companionate. Also, I felt very comfortable with my rider colleagues: Duncan, Alex and Yann. While all of my co-bikers clearly were more experienced riding on cliffs, beaches and rocky ground, crossing creeks, etc. they all allowed me to find my own riding rhythm and to become comfortable experiencing and developing my riding skills. Should you decide for the impressive West Fjord motorcycle tour, do not forget to bring some layers of clothing with you. Adequate riding gear is a must! Alexander Wälti, Switzerland (June 2019)

Me, my brother and two if my best friends where searching for something fun to end this summer. By internet I found Ride with locals. We decided fore their 6 day trip to the Higlands. And what a trip it was. They took us to some places we couldn't dream to se. Their ability to adjust the tour and route after our ability to ride the bike's we're the best all 3 of them. Great huts and good food made the evenings joyful. This is a great way to enjoy the Higlands in Iceland. Together with Ride with locals. Thank you guys ! And off course Nile from Canada Pontus Urban Jörgen and Jocke
