Into The Dirt: Battling the elements in Iceland

Riding the big mountain lines of Iceland’s hostile moonscape.
By Ric McLaughlin

Country: Iceland
Population: 325,671
Terrain: Plateaus consisting of sand, lava fields, mountains and glaciers
Anthem: Lofsöngur

Iceland is one of the most sparsely-populated countries in Europe and two thirds of that population are huddled in the south west within its capital city, Reykjavík. The surrounding terrain is mountainous and hostile; perfect Moment Pictures territory!

As always with our Into the Dirt series, however, it wasn't all plain sailing and the guys had to face down some serious adversity in order to claim their riding rewards.
