Itinerary Details

  1. Day 1The Locals' Favorite

    You will be picked up (ready to ride) at your hotel around 9 AM. After a short stop at the tour operator's office, you will be driven about 2-hours along the south coast into the highlands. This trail used to be one of the local mountain bikers best kept secrets. Even though word about it has spread, it is still rather remote. The tour operator just loves sharing it with their visitors!

    It begins by Iceland’s second-highest waterfall, Háifoss, that plunges 122m/400ft off the edge of a plateau. You will end the ride by passing the ruins of “Stöng Farm” from the time of the settlement.

  2. Day 2The Volcano Desert

    The ride of the day starts from our hut at the foot of Hekla, Iceland’s most active volcano. It passes along the edge of a moss-covered lava field and a black volcanic wasteland evoking the sense of being “lost in the wilderness.” It stretches through black desert sands before entering the amazing Dómadalur region.

    Your second night is spent in a charming hut owned by the farmers of the area.

  3. Day 3The Highlands Oasis

    The stunning area of Landmannalaugar, famous for its palette of pastel colored mountains is the home of the most epic single tracks trails in Iceland. The word “undulating” is probably the best one to explain what characterize the rides here. You will bike multiple 100 – 300m climbs and some shorts hike-a-bike sections during the day. You will end the day with a soak in a warm natural pool.

  4. Day 4Mountain Crossing

    You will start the day with a very steep climb up a double-track called “Pokahryggur”. A name given by the local farmers that used to put a sand-filled bags under the tires of their jeeps to manage to ride up the road. The climb is rewarded by an undulating descent on a remote mountain road through a landscape of impressive hot natural springs.

    You will drop down into valleys and crossing few cold rivers before arriving at your comfortable mountain hut.

  5. Day 5The Big Green Mountain

    You will ride past Torfahlaup Canyon to find your way onto a remote and breathtaking trail that leads to a hidden valley. Shredding around all day under the cone-shaped mountain Stórasúla.

    It is the last night together in the mountains, so it’s a fiesta with a traditionally dressed whole leg of lamb to enjoy tonight.

  6. Day 6Ride through the Forest

    Thorsmork is situated in a mythical place with birch trees and ravines surrounded by steep mountains. Some awesome and rather challenging single-tracks are waiting for you today via deep canyons, through desert sand and lava fields.

    You'll enjoy a two-hour drive back to Reykjavík after the last ride, early enough to enjoy your evening and have a good group dinner in one of the city’s restaurants.
