Ferð að eldstöðvunum er algjörlega einstök upplifun. Raf-fjallahjól er frábært tæki til að komast að Geldingadal. Þetta er alls ekki skemmtilegasta hjólaleið á Íslandi, grófir slóðar "doubletrack" - en upplifunin er algjörlega þess virði. Við stoppum í klukkutíma við eldstöðvarnar.

Bike to the volcano! Lava Trails just got hotter! A unique opportunity to bike to an erupting volcano. We drive 1 hour from Reykjavík and bike one hour to the volcano on dirtroads and technical doubletracks with some challenging steep parts with loose soil. This certainly is, by far, not the best & most flowy trail in the country. But it definitely takes the win of being a unique experience - using a bike to reach an erupting volcano. We stop at the site for an hour for everyone to take in the absolutely stunning views of lava flowing from the crater. On March 19th an eruption started on Reykjanes peninsula, not far from Reykjavik capital of Iceland. A steady flow of lava is coming from 3 craters. There is no way to say how long the eruption will last, it can be hours, days, years or decades. Scientists speculate a long rather than short eruption. We tailor the trip to weather. The trail is not safe for riding in certain directions of wind because of fumes from the eruption. This trip is suitable for riders with intermediate skill level. If you just started mountain biking this is not the right trip for you. This trip can and will be tailored to the moods of the volcano.

MTB day to remember. All Mountain style traverse including challenging hikes and technical descents. The trip starts near the city center. We fly over the colorful roofs of Reykjavík before heading towards the geothermal region passing mossy lavafields on our way to the top. We touch down on the Hengill volcano peak for a nice start of awesome 5km descent, now we have to earn our turns, far away from population we ride an ever-changing volcanic singletrack passing rivers valleys and do some sandstone ridgeline riding, pausing only to take in the majesty of this remarkable area. As the day wears on we work our way up to the tectonic lava trail for a final technical fast and flowy traverse down to the geothermal area of Nesjavellir. This is an unforgettable trip suited to experienced AM / Enduro rider with some true grit.
