My husband and I booked the 3 day Thors Garden trip with Icebikes. We spent the first half day riding the lava trail outside or Reykjavik, which was a great. We then packed up the super jeep and headed to Thorsmork. The super jeep tour on the way was almost worth the cost of the trip. We stopped to see the Seljalandsfoss waterfall on our was, as well as other notable areas of interest and crossed a couple of rivers. All super fun! The stay at the Volcano Huts in Throsmork was great. Good food, nice accommodations and an interesting group of people also staying at the huts. We went for an evening ride the first day with beautiful views of the area. Day 2 we packed a lunch went for a longer ride, again with spectacular views. The trails were challenging, a fair amount of hike a bike, but totally worth it for the descents! In the afternoon we took the super jeep to see another beautiful waterfall. The last day we drove back towards Reykjavik and biked down into the Reykjadalur valley. We soaked in the Reykjadalur Hot Springs before continuing down to end the ride at a cafe for a beer and coffee.
Honestly, this was one of the best trips I have ever been on! Our guide David took such good care of us. He was knowledgable about biking, the surrounding area/trails, as well as Icelandic history. We were definitely challenged by the trails (much steeper than in Vermont), but we always felt like David had our safety and riding ability in mind when choosing what trails to ride. We could not recommend Icebike enough. We would have been completely lost and probably still wandering the Icelandic countryside without David!
