Our Iceland mountain bike holiday is a wild roller-coaster journey in a land unlike any other. With surprises round every corner, it's a guaranteed sensory overload for mountain bikers. After an exciting drive beneath the active volcano, Mount Hekla into the Domadalur Valley, we set off biking on a mix of jeep track and singletrack through the remote Tolkienesque landscape of the Fjallabak. Venturing into an area that rarely sees bikes, we can expect a real sensory overload, as we cross lava fields and enjoy ever-changing views of Iceland's luminous green, moss-clad landscape. After a relaxing soak in the Landmannalaugar hot springs and an overnight there, we continue this classic ride by way of a series of river crossings and via the stunning Eldgja Gorge to the foot of the Vatnajokull Icecap. Heading southwards, our cross-country bike route leads through a surreal black volcanic desert, with jagged mountains on one side and the Myrdalsjokull Icecap on the other. We end up at Porsmork, close to the southern coast, after 5 unforgettable days of mountain biking. One thing to bear in mind is that we will enjoy near-constant daylight, so it will never be too dark to ride! Not for the faint hearted, this is a memorable journey and a real wilderness adventure.
Is this holiday for you?
FAT TYRE ADVENTURE. This is real wilderness mountain biking, with the landscape changing dramatically each day. With a daily average of a little under 50 kilometres, this is not extreme riding, but the changeable weather and tricky route conditions will make some sections feel tough. Part of the route is on dirt and gravel tracks, but we will try to get away from these as much as possible. Off-road experience and a good level of fitness are essential. This is a trip for regular weekend bikers, looking for an adventure and a chance to ride in a unique environment. The support vehicle will be available for many sections. BIKE HIRE AVAILABLE LOCALLY.
