“Glacier 360 is a 290 km ride around Langjökull Glacier in Iceland. You start at Geysir geothermal area and finish off at Gullfoss waterfall. We race in three stages, one stage for each day of the race.
It all comes down to dealing with long distances in the rough but majestic Icelandic highlands. For this challenge you can expect anything and everything to happen, weather and conditions can vary from one minute to the other and unforeseen situations are a part of the challenge.
The terrain is diverse, you’ll find it all, smooth and a bit rugged gravel roads, flowy and fun turns, a few steep climbs, easygoing dirt single tracks and rivers to cross (not on bridges but with support).”

For riders in the exclusive package the first night available is spent only a few kilometers from where we take of by Geysir. The village, Laugarvatn has a nice bathing area with warm geothermal pools and natural steam rooms. It’s perfect to relax for the first stage.
The night at the end of stage one will be spent in one of the most popular vacation areas in Iceland. It also has a very nice pool which participants will have private access to.
The night at the end of stage two will be all about the adventure. We’ll spend it in the Icelandic highland area, Hveravellir. It is magical but basic, with a natural geothermal pool and very basic dressing rooms.
For all packages (basic, advanced and exclusive) transport to and from Reykjavik is included.
