Video: Iceland Divide

We’ll just put it out there: Iceland is really affordable to fly to from the United States at the moment, especially from the East Coast. Maybe it’s time to abandon the idea of a warm getaway and go headfirst into the wintry wonderland. Though, we gotta say, from the looks of this video, it looks like it’s about as warm there as it is here.

Iceland Divide is the new Montanus film that recounts a self-supported bikepacking expedition from north to south of Iceland, one of the most extreme environments on the planet, following the only visible stretch of the longest mountain range on Earth, the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Lava ash, boundless glaciers, and otherworldly landscapes accompany the Italian duo into a world of immeasurable desolation and enthralling beauty.
