Itinerary description

Mountain trail trip from Egilsholl hostel to Afangafell mountain hut (closed in winter time). Road in good condition, concrete in the first section but mostly unpaved and quite rocky.

Avoid this trip in winter since the snow pack may be really huge.

    Thanks for your comments! My recumbent is made by Challenge (see www.challenge-recumbents.com) a small manufacturer of those bikes.
    Cheers,

    Iceland, weather permitting, is a great camping destination with breathtaking outdoor spots. Look forward to return there some day! Good luck Norman!
