We set out to create the knarliest MTB bike packing expedition without wasted time on transfers and travel, we hope you will agree. A land of fire, ice, and elves, Iceland is a rare and vast wilderness of nature&rsquo;s awesome majesty. It&rsquo;s also quite possibly the strangest place ever. And that&rsquo;s precisely why you should take on this epic journey. Bikepacking during the day you will recover your strength&nbsp; each evening relaxing in natural hot springs. This route is only suitable for fit and experienced cyclists who are proficient at riding off road in remote locations.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><table style="float: right;" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="1"> <tbody> <tr> <td colspan="3" style="text-align: center;"><strong>Schedule</strong></td> <td><strong>Distance<br /> </strong></td> <td><strong>Time<br /> </strong></td> </tr> <tr> <td>Day 1 (Transfer or ride)</td> <td width="200">Arrive <span><span>Keflavik International</span></span></td> <td width="200">Arrive <span>Reykjavik (Campsite/hostel)</span></td> <td>64 km</td> <td>08:45 - 10:30</td> </tr> <tr> <td>Day 2 (Stage 1)</td> <td width="200">Reykjavik</td> <td width="200">Husafell Campsite</td> <td>112 km</td> <td>06:30 - 18:00</td> </tr> <tr> <td>Day 3 (Stage 2)</td> <td width="200">Husafell Campsite</td> <td width="200">Hveravellir Campsite</td> <td>109 km</td> <td>06:30 - 18:00</td> </tr> <tr> <td>Day 4 (Stage 3)</td> <td width="200">Hveravellir Campsite</td> <td width="200">Thingvellir Campsite</td> <td>155 km</td> <td>06:30 - 18:00</td> </tr> <tr> <td>Day 5 (Stage 4)</td> <td width="200">Thingvellir Campsite</td> <td width="200"><span>Reykjavik (Campsite/hostel)</span></td> <td>97 km</td> <td>06:30 - 18:00</td> </tr> <tr> <td>Day 6 (Transfer or ride)</td> <td width="200"><span>Reykjavik (Campsite/hotel)</span></td> <td width="200"><span>Depart Keflavk International</span></td> <td>64 km</td> <td>07:30 - 09:25</td> </tr> </tbody></table>
