Your excursion begins at the meeting point in Akureyri. Here, you'll greet an expert local guide who will lead the trip and help you choose your e-bike. Your guide has many years of experience and will help you find the bike that is most suitable for you.

The e-bikes available are top quality, with either full suspension or hardtail. Your guide will fit you with a helmet for your safety. You'll also receive a bike lock should you want to leave the e-bike unattended during the tour.

Before you head out for your bike ride, your guide will give you a thorough safety briefing and a tutorial on using an e-bike. You don't need to have ridden an e-bike before but must be a competent cyclist with good fitness.

E-bikes, also known as electric bicycles, are revolutionizing the way people explore. They operate like traditional bikes but are equipped with an electric motor, which offers pedaling assistance.

This electric motor makes cycling more accessible to a broader range of riders, especially for uphill cycling or routes covering long distances. You can turn the assistance function on or off when you need to.

The bike's electric motor makes cycling over Iceland's rough terrain much more manageable than on a traditional bicycle. It is a unique way to discover this breathtaking part of North Iceland.

When you feel comfortable, you'll head out on your e-bike to the Kjarnaskogur forest. This popular recreation area spans about 2,000 acres (about 800 hectares). Known as the "pearl of Akureyri," the forest has excellent cycling routes and mountain biking trails. It also boasts stunning scenery, with views over the Eyjafjordur fjord. It is one of the best cycling destinations in North Iceland.

During the excursion, you can stop at various points to admire the scenery and natural features. Your guide will tell you more about the forest and the plants and trees that grow there.

At the end of the tour, your guide will take you back to the e-bike rental office, where you'll drop off your bike. From here, you can continue your adventures in Akureyri or head home.

Don't miss this adrenaline-fuelled experience, cycling through a forest in North Iceland on an e-bike. Check availability now by choosing a date.
