Slowly, slowly, I’m starting to get the time and bandwidth to actually do something with all the video and photos we brought back from Iceland. This is a short film that I put together last week with footage from the Laugavegur trail, a hiking trail that links the steam-wreathed volcanic hills Landmannalaugar with the southern ice glaciers of Myrdalsjökull and Eyjafjallajökull. We rode it as an out-and-back trip, taking a lot less kit than we had been lugging about, and it was both the toughest and most memorable part of the trip. Those steep scree gulleys that you see us pushing the bikes out of? There were 30 or so of them on the first day, after which our arms were doing their best to just fall off and leave in protest. No, there were no elves hiding in the snow tunnel. Yes,the colours really did look like that. Yes, you should go there.
Thanks for watching,
