Incredible! Congratulations to you both on what must have been a truly epic adventure in some hectic conditions. The photos look awesome!

Hi Guys! What awesome adventure! I'm planning a trip to Iceland this July to attempt a solo, unsupported fastpack of this route, and would love to chat with you about the logistics, nameably glacial run-off crossings & resupply. Please reach out if you have a minute. Thanks!

Did the first unsupported in 2010. Also my route is shorter but harder as I avoided sealed roads as much as possible. Mostly off track.
My point are the most extreme North and South. The lighthouse is not the furthest north.
