This is a short film made in Iceland during the adventure called "Tour Iceland in Mountain-Bike" in summer 2012, in which we discovered this beautiful country and its internal desert route of Kjölur.
The adventure is part of a project called "Scopri il Mondo sui Pedali" (Discover the World on Pedals) created by a set of ideas of four friends to rediscover the culture of travel. It is a way to see the world through different eyes and share the desire for knowledge, respect and solidarity with other peoples and cultures. The key issue is the protection of the environment, natural, geological and historical heritage of the places visited. The project aims to make "uncomfortable" travels but that are guaranteed to reach places absolutely unusual, and experience impossible to forget. After the experience of North Cape in 2010, this year raid by cycling, trekking, rafting are going to discover Iceland, covering over 1200 km in mountain-bike without any means of support but relying on their own resources, a journey into the land of extreme contrasts that flows around the Arctic Circle. Volcanoes, glaciers, lava fields, geothermal areas, black sand beaches formed wild landscapes that, according to the weather conditions and the intensity of light, can evoke the beginning or the end of the world.
A great movie of the story will be released soon.
