Heli drop on the top of a dormant volcano. This is an epic day of biking in a geothermal region. For riders with technical trail experience and strong stamina.

What to expect?

  • The trip starts near the city center. We fly over the colorful roofs of Reykjavík before heading towards the geothermal region passing mossy lavafields on our way to the top. We touch down on the Hengill volcano peak for a nice start of an awesome 5 km descent, now we have to earn our turns, far away from population we ride an ever-changing volcanic singletrack passing rivers, valleys, and do some sandstone ridgeline riding, pausing only to take in the majesty of this remarkable area.

  • As the day wears on, we work our way up to the tectonic lava trail for a final technical fast and flowy traverse down to the geothermal area of Nesjavellir. Trip ends with a well deserved local beer and a burger at Hotel Ion.
