ICELAND OFF LIMITS
Our plan is to travel around the entire country of Iceland uniquely using our bikes. The total trajectory is of 2500km, averaging out to 60 km per day over a period of 42 days. On May 12th we will depart from Montreal airport, shipping the bikes with us, only to return June 22nd. We are taking many detours off the main 1300km road circling the country to stop by waterfalls, the Westmann islands, the Sólheimasandur plane crash, various hot springs, geysers, the highlands, small towns and many more of Iceland's hidden gems. With very few towns on the way, we will mostly rely on camping.
Thomas (right) and Julian (left) have known each other for over 8 years now. We are both adventure seeking individuals driven by the outdoors. Having backpacked across Europe for 2 months last summer, we wanted to take it one step further this year. Thomas is currently studying international business while Julian freelance's in photography and video work. We are both extremely organized, passionate and determined making us the perfect team for this project.
WHAT WE CAN OFFER YOU
A TON OF IMAGES
Stunning series of images featuring your product that you'll be able to use freely on social media, your website or for any other commercial use. If you have any specific picture request, we will make it happen.
Julian has a lot of experience in video production having worked with clients such as Converse and Venque. The journey will be documented with our video equipment. We have invested in a drone in order to capture outstanding aerial footage as well. Again, any specific promotional video requests can be done.
A FEATURE IN OUR VIDEO
On our side, we will be creating a short video about the entire adventure with the hopes of inspiring others. This video will be sent to many travel film festivals. The goal is to collect to largest attainable audience on YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook and Instagram by promoting it as much as possible. Brands that have helped make the trip possible will get their logo and products featured in the final product.
Iceland has been on our to-do list for a while now. The landscapes are absolutely unique and the pictures above really do speak for themselves. Over 70% of the population lives in the region of Reykjavik leaving the rest of the country quite deserted. The mix of isolation and stunning scenery is what attracts us so much. Cycling around Iceland just seems like the perfect way to discover this place.
WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR US
We're looking for any of your products that we could benefit from during the travelling. This means anything you feel we could use to make the journey more comfortable, more efficient or simply for aesthetics. Any product received will be photographed and/or filmed.
SOCIAL MEDIA PROMOTION
Any content that we would create for your brand can also be used as promotion for this project. Giving us credits or simply mentioning the Iceland project on a post can be very helpful when it comes to building an audience.
At the end of the day, what we're really interested in is collaborating with you. We look forward to this trip and hope to bring you along on this journey with us. Let's create!
