You’ll never be closer to nature’s raw, untamed forces than you will be at Hekla, one of Iceland’s most active volcanos. The road up to it is not an easy one, but when you get to the top, you’ll get a perfect bird’s-eye view of a landscape like no other.
WHEN ADVENTURE CALLS
You’ll need fitness, skill and a motorcycle that’s a joy to ride.
When you ride with us, you’ll be part of one the greatest motorcycle adventures ever, riding the bike of your dreams – an Africa Twin. The most advanced long-range touring, on and off-road machine we’ve ever built.
Despite the uncertain times, we have had an incredible response to the Honda Adventure Roads 2022 with over 1200 applicants, and if you happen to be one of the chosen few, then you’ll have a challenging adventure to look forward to; an inspiring journey over terrain that will really test you, not only as a rider, but as a person too. Sadly, we had to postpone our tour this year due to COVID, but our participants are in good spirits and keen to keep in touch via the Honda Adventure Roads App and are already having conversations about the trip next year.
Although features like cruise control, touch-screen technology and heated grips make it a great tourer, its ruggedness and pure off-road ability will allow you to really get to grips with the rough and varied terrain you’ll encounter in Iceland.
It takes a tough bike and a tough rider to take on Iceland and here’s why.
Riding over roads and tracks that range from smooth tarmac to loose-gravel, you’ll be climbing steep mountain-passes and negotiating rocky streams over 11 days. We make no secret of the fact that this is no Sunday afternoon ride out. At the end of the day, you’ll have earned your evening meal and a bed for the night after a day’s riding in Iceland – we guarantee it.
Travelling alongside fellow, like-minded adventurers is about sharing experiences on the road and developing new friendships along the way. You’ll not only be learning new riding skills, but you’ll be discovering new landscapes, new roads and cultures. That’s the real achievement on a trip like this and not just about ticking off the kilometres… doing it together as a team always means so much more.
The stages we’ve planned through Iceland’s varied and stunning scenery will take your breath away and demand a lot of your physical and mental strength. You’ll soon find out why the Africa Twin, with all its advanced technologies is the right tool for the job.
Take a look below at some of the beautiful views you can expect to see in Iceland – the Land of Ice and Fire – and keep in touch with us for updates and news.
Lake Myatt in the North of Iceland will probably the most challenging stage of all. You and your Africa Twin will encounter many different surfaces: lava flows, sand, gravel tracks, even rivers and streams, all leading to a well-earned team BBQ in the evening.
Landmannalaugar, known for its natural geothermal hot springs and a sight that will stop you in the packed sand and muddy tracks that lead up to it. A place where you and your Africa Twin will feel perfectly at home.
Just think, while you’re taking in the astounding natural beauty of Iceland, there’s probably some poor soul, on a late running train somewhere, trying to figure out how connect to Wi-Fi… then smile, hit the start button and crack on!
Ride side-by-side with the pros and discover how much more fun you can have riding the Africa Twin. Honda Racing Corporation rally riders will be a part of our team – along for the ride to share their skills and help you experience real exhilaration riding on and off road. What’s more, there’ll be a complete team of Honda technicians close by at various checkpoints – just like a proper rally – with plenty of support for everyone with spares and even a spare bike in the unlikely event that you’ll need one.
CRF1100L Africa Twin
This rugged, rally-inspired motorcycle has more of the things you’ll recognise as a pure off-road machine. A slim, lightweight frame, handfuls of torque and a riding position designed for sitting comfortably as well as standing for perfect off-road control.
