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.

A unique daytrip for intermediate MTB riders. Technical doubletrack to an erupting volcano

Meet at our base or request pick up in Reykjavik.  We get the bikes ready and hop on the SUV for a 35 minute drive to the trails.  We drive to the dormant volcano “Hengill” and start our ride well away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Steam rises from the geothermal plant that is at the bottom of the mountain. We traverse the tectonic ridges where the earth is ripping apart. The variety of technical singletrack and fast flowy trails make this a superb choice for advanced riders. The area offers diverse landscapes and everchanging trail.  This trip suits experienced riders with good technical skills -Happy riding steep, loose, narrow trails.

Is this trip for me?   Yes, if you are an experienced rider with good fitness and you like technical All-Mountain trails & stunning landscapes.

You can do a lot in one day in Iceland! In summer: Days are long, almost 24hrs of daylight and we recommend using the bright nights well. Find information on what to wear and have a look at Icebike Adventures picture gallery from our trips. Grab the popcorn, sit back and enjoy some of your biking videos from Iceland. Last but not least, get some practical information on your trips and what to expect when riding in Iceland.
