Event Description

Intermediate difficulty

The route of our event takes in as many features as possible, including stunning waterfalls, glaciers, hot springs, mud pools, thermal baths, geyser and, quite possibly, the amazing glacier lagoon.

Although intended as a competitive event, the Icelandic Saga is designed to be enjoyed by crews who normally only enter touring events. You decide just how competitive you want to be. Driving tests and regularity sections can be driven at a leisurely pace, or missed out altogether if you would prefer. However, if you are competitive then you will be competing for a number of trophies including class, overall and a selection of special awards. On successful completion of the event, each crew member will receive a finishers’ award.

Iceland is a world of contrasts, the smouldering volcanoes and pristine glaciers combine to form one of the most unique eco-systems on the planet. There is also a chance of seeing one of nature’s most wonderful phoenomenon in Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights, this may be limited as we visit when the nights grow longer and the solar cycle is decreasing slightly. Icelandic hospitality is legendary, the warmth of greeting and standard of food is superb, it is one of the many reasons we have chosen to re-visit the country. A setting for many movie scenes, James Bond, Star Wars, Tomb Raider and Batman all have scenes filmed here, the surreal middle earth topography of the Island lending itself to creativity.

The Icelandic Saga is classified as ‘Intermediate’. This is due to some mixed surface driving, this will include asphalt & gravel, it may include ice and snow, winter tyres have been recommended (none studded) by our friends in Iceland. This event is suitable for all levels of ability, you decide just how competitive you wish to be.
