Travel video of the day - ATV Touring in Iceland

News of Iceland has begun to publish travel videos from people who have traveled to Iceland. If you have a video, a travel story or pictures from your trip, you can share them with us.

This is a video of me, a 34 year old paraplegic and my 3 friends that was shot by master filmmaker Halldór Kolbeins during our 5 day quad biking tour across Iceland.

This tour was done to raise awareness of the importance of improoving accessibility in tourist facilities on the highlands of Iceland. The tour was sponsored by many very good and visionary companies that despite the fact of an economic meltdown in Iceland, went ahead and supported us on our tour. Our main sponsors were Stormur - Polaris ATV dealer in Iceland, Sjálfsbjörg - the association of disabled in Iceland, Olís - Iceland Oil ltd, 66°North - Outdoor Clothing Company, Netto - Grocery Store and Safaris.is - Land Rover Experience Iceland. Many other companies sponsored us on our journey, either with funds or goods and individuals as well. With out them this tour would not have turned into reality. For the summer of 2010 we have now organized similar quadbiking tours for the adventurous disabled traveler.

Please send me a message should you dear reader be interested as we can promise you a fantastic journey where you'll see, feel and hear what Iceland is all about and that from behind steering your quadbike!

You can check out our tour also on www.acrossiceland.is
The members on my team were Ingó, Fúsi and Halldór. I will never be able to thank them enough for the fantastic job they did and for their extremely good company. Thank you guys...!

Thanks and stay safe.
