    • Conquer the climbs around the incredible Lake Myvatn

      Master the magnificent hills and volcanic landscapes of the mesmerizing Lake Myvatn area on this thrilling mountain bike tour, including awe-inspiring vistas and adrenaline-pumping climbs.

      This dynamic day tour kicks off by the transfixing Lake Myvatn. The MTB tour will take you over diverse, exciting terrain, including volcanic rock, sand, and dirt - this is the kind of terrain that makes the lake’s surroundings so dramatic. The lake itself - the fourth-largest body of water in Iceland (36.5 square kilometers in area) - is an aesthetic and geological wonder that’ll have you reaching for your camera several times along the captivating route.

      Keen cyclists will relish the challenge of Lake Myvatn’s hills, as well as the sand that provides an extra level of difficulty. But not all of the tour is for the purpose of pumping the adrenaline - you’ll traverse farmers’ trails along the awe-inspiring Atlantic Ridge before arriving in the charming, traditional Icelandic village of Reykjahið.

      N.B. A water bottle and snack is recommended for this tour as you will be heading into the Icelandic backcountry.
