Embark on a mountain biking expedition cycling through different terrains in the off-road and remote areas of Mývatn. Enjoy breathtaking views of the landscapes, which include lava fields, green hills, and rocky volcanic terrains. Take advantage of this rare beauty and capture the moments in the most picturesque areas of the trails. Explore the Dalfjall Mountain, Lake Mývatn, Reykjahlíð village, and the volcanic area of Krafla.
We start from our office by Lake Mývatn and drive with the Fat Bikes on a trailer for 15 minutes to our start point. We then cycle through the green hills and volcanic rocks, exploring the Volcanic landscape near Krafla Volcano where it last erupted in 1984. We enjoy amazing views and stop a few times to enjoy the view, take pictures and catch our breath. The tour is challenging and because some hills are very steep, we have to walk the bikes up or down. We ride on a narrow trail through lava, sand, gravel, and dirt from the Krafla area up and down Dalfjall Mountain and end in Reykjahlíð village by Lake Mývatn.
It is recommended that you bring a water bottle and snack with you this tour, since it takes us truly to the backcountry. This tour is for people who are looking for a challenge. On the trail, there are places we have to get off the bikes to lift over obstacles. them over a fence or past an obstacle.
