Mount up on a ‘fat-bike’, and come exploring the lunar landscapes of the otherworldly Reykjanes Peninsula. This exciting, adventurous tour can be tailored to any ability level, from beginner to expert.
To start the tour, you will be picked up from your Reykjavík accommodation from 09:30 in a super jeep, which will allow you to reach destinations normal buses cannot. Super jeeps also have limited seats so that you can be sure of a personal experience.
You will then head to the Reykjanes Peninsula, a region famed for its stretches of barren lava, cone-shaped volcanoes, and beautiful vistas. Once you reach your destination, you’ll hop out of the jeep, onto your fat-bike, and start your adventure.
The thick tyres of your bicycle make it perfectly adapted for the terrain of the peninsula; you will be able to traverse the jagged lava, black sands, and, in winter, endless fields of gleaming snow. You will find yourself far off the beaten track as you ride through various spectacular areas.
Your bike and helmet will be provided; all you need to bring are warm clothes. Even if the weather seems ideal, it can change in a heartbeat, so it’s good to have them on hand should you need to change.
After your thrilling ride, you will return to your Super Jeep, and be driven back to a predetermined place in Reykjavík. No doubt, you will still be in awe of the sights you’ll have seen, and exhilarated from the experience.
This tour is exciting and immersive, but will not eat too much into your day; all in all, it lasts less than four hours, so you are free to make late afternoon and evening plans to make the most of your time in Iceland.
So do not hesitate to book. Mount your fat-bike and start your adventure. Check availability by choosing a date.
Icelandic weather can be pretty unpredictable, do bring the layers you might need, you can leave what you don't use in our superjeep while you ride.
