A bucket list worthy day of helibiking.

Explore lava fields from above and the ground. The trip starts at the airport in the city center. Short briefing about what is to come before we hop on the helicopter. A stunning flyover of the colourful roofs of Reykjavík. Flying out of the city towards lakes and mossy lava fields. Our landing spot is a mountaintop on Reykjanes peninsula with some spectacular views. The descent is short and sweet and we continue to the journey on gravel roads towards a lava fissure. After biking and some time to explore nature we hop on a super jeep for a 4t minutes drive back to town.  A true Icelandic adventure tour, reach remote landscapes with the use of helicopter. Challenge your biking skills and if you like: get some tips from the guide on how to improve your biking.  In summer we use our full suspension mountain bikes for this trip. In winter the OTSO carbon fatbikes with Icelandic LAUF fork are our tool of choice.
