Description

Get up close and personal with the raw beauty of Icelandic nature on this 2.5-hour e-bike tour in North Iceland. Those who want to explore the hidden attractions of the region on a bike, from lush farms to the beautiful Ullarfoss waterfall, should book their tour spots today.

Your e-bike tour in Iceland begins at the tour operator’s base in the municipality of Thingeyjarsveit, 33 miles (53 kilometers) from Akureyri. You’ll meet your friendly guide here, who will lead you through nearly three hours of off-road sightseeing adventure.

Before starting your journey, the guide will provide you with a suspension Ghost bike. The advantage of riding an e-bike over a traditional bike is that you can adjust your pace from easy to more challenging, depending on how you feel and how active you want to get. 

For a more convenient riding experience, they will also teach you how to use it properly, including some safety tips.

For your part in making the small-group tour a smooth experience, dress in warm waterproof clothes and comfortable biking shoes. Consider also bringing a water bottle and a camera to capture the stunning scenery on the trail.

After gearing up, the exciting tour departs to explore the northern region of the land of fire and ice. With its spectacular landscapes, North Iceland is a lovely place to explore. The diverse scenery includes mountains, rivers, and waterfalls, so you can bask in the beauty of nature everywhere you go.

The first stop on your e-bike tour is the forest Fossselsskogur where you can see a thick cover of tree species like birch. The forest part of the tour is also a great time to get used to riding your e-bike, as the area features flat and slope terrain.

From the forest, your biking group will head up to Fljotsheidi, a rural area in North Iceland with many abandoned farms. Here, you will see an expanse of lush vegetation and wetlands surrounded by towering mountains. 

Next, you will take a small stop back in the forest at a traditional farm for some local refreshments. The farm visit is a unique way of experiencing Icelandic culture while admiring grasslands and river streams nearby.

The last stretch of your Icelandic e-biking tour is a visit to the majestic Ullarfoss waterfall in Bardardalur valley. The waterfall is one of the most magnificent attractions in the area that is not frequented by tourist crowds. You’ll have plenty of time to admire its beauty and take some pictures. 

At the end of the tour, you’ll return to the starting point at Thingeyjarsveit and turn in your bike. While still in the area, you may visit other places of interest, such as the Godafoss waterfall and Lake Myvatn.

Experience an unforgettable e-biking in Iceland with this 2.5-hour tour that will take you to some of the best sites in North Iceland, from forests to a waterfall, all while you enjoy the outdoors. Check availability now by choosing a date.
