The overall plan was to conduct the Expedition during the Summer Months of 2017, due to a number of highly practical reasons, including:
- Free Access to Iceland Interior Mountain Roads (some of which are only open few month of the year)
- School Summer Holidays
- Smyril Line Car Ferry operations window from Denmark to Iceland (Via Faeroe Islands)
- Summer Weather Conditions / Very Long Daylight Conditions
