A great daytrip for experienced mountainbikers. Scenic challenging singletracks near Reykjavík.

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. Riders that are fit enough to do a challenging ride. Includes uphill pedalling and fast flowy technical descent.

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.

    Hi Guys, Being a passionate mountain biker I have travelled to many countries for biking. However, nothing ever came close to my positive experience on Iceland: Friendly authentic people (at Icebike and anywhere else), fantastic countryside (even when the sun is not shining), extremely challenging ride (your own choice which level you want) - no race, but smart and cool guide caring for any individual’s pace and skills. Top quality bikes - Very professional team. To cut a long story short: Thank you very much to Ásta, Magne, Runar!!! I will certainly be back one day.

    My husband and I had a fabulous experience with Icebike Adventures! Before we arrived in Iceland, we emailed the company to ask which day trips would be appropriate to book based on our experience and riding skills. Ásta responded promptly with helpful insight, and we ended up choosing "The Edge" and "The Tectonic" tours. The morning of the trips, the Icebike staff offered us coffee and gave us energy bars to take with us. Thortiste (I'm unsure of the spelling of her name!) was our guide for both tours - she was great! She encouraged and challenged us, checked in to make sure we were doing ok, and let us stop to take breaks and photos. The bikes supplied by Icebike were in excellent condition, and they had GoPro attachments available on some helmets. The terrain was diverse, challenging, and fun, and the views and scenery spectacular (especially on The Tectonic ride!). We would definitely recommend choosing Icebike Adventures - they are knowledgeable, professional, fun, and offer a fabulous experience. Thanks to everyone at Icebike for some awesome adventures!
