5 weeks of skiing in Canada
MIM Glacier Tours
I want to share a bit of our adventure in Canada with you hoping it inspires you to go ‘oot and aboot’ (as they say in Canada) and have your own little adventure.
We are proud to now be able to offer daily departures for Sólheimajökull glacier. It is amazing to be able to explore this natural wonder just a couple of hours' drive from Reykjavik.
Iceland Winter Games
We have found our way! Yes, our way of giving riders up for a good challenge how great XC riding in Iceland can actually be. Each day offers its own unique experience of Icelandic trails, gravel roads, compressed volcanic ash on lava fields, and so much more.
Where are you?
The Made in Mountains crew is always out and about, seeking new adventures. The first weekend of April we'll be travelling to Akureyri, the capital of the North to participate in the Iceland Winter Games. The event's sponsored by Red Bull and is a must-attend.
Racing the gravel
During the last days of summer a part of the MiM team went out exploring the route for The Grand Arctic - Glacier 360 challenge in Iceland August 16th - 19th 2016.
Racing road is all about teamwork, even though this is a sport of individuals. I really enjoy the dynamics of road racing that teamwork creates and I have been lucky enough to have had the experience of working with my brother, Ingvar.
In road races I have been acting as Ingvars lieutenant ever since I was good enough, I’ve always enjoyed being in the position to help my brother take small and big wins for our team.
My day on the peninsula
When the adrenaline finally wore off (yes, I also cried after the race, mainly tears of joy) and I managed to think about the race, the win, the joy I realised to my surprise that the best part of winning was not the victory itself. It was being able to celebrate with all the amazing people who’ve believed in me and supported me. You know who you are and you have made it worth it!
Big rocks' trail
On my continuous search for adventures in Iceland and being constantly trying to make my “necessary” training hours an adventure I discovered this one. Snæfellsnes peninsula has since I was really really young been one of my favorite places in Iceland.
However, 3 hours into the mission we had a reality check, “oh shit, we’re only half way into this mission”. It turned out that the winter before the East had a lot of snow, lot more than previous winters, leaving large parts the hiking path still covered in snow by the end of July.
