Explore the stunning hills and volcanoes above Lake Myvatn by bike on this three-hour fat bike tour. Travelers looking for an active tour that allows them to see some of the best scenery in North Iceland should book this tour today. 

Lake Myvatn is a beloved volcanic lake in North Iceland, about 45 miles (73 kilometers) from the town of Akureyri. It is one of the stops on the Ring Road driving route that encircles the country, as well as a stop on North Iceland’s Diamond Circle route, which also takes you to Dettifoss waterfall, Asbyrgi canyon, and the town of Husavik.

Lake Myvatn covers 14 square miles (37 square kilometers) and is surrounded by lush wetlands and greenery. The lake was formed around 2300 years ago by volcanic eruptions, and there is still volcanic activity in the area that produces geothermal features like the Myvatn Nature Baths.

A fat bike tour in the hills surrounding Lake Myvatn is a fantastic way to enjoy unbeatable views of this otherworldly area and give you the chance to get your adrenaline pumping. Your guide will take you on an exciting cycling route that lets you experience some of the best that North Iceland has to offer.

Fat bikes are bicycles made for off-roading and get their name from their extra wide, or fat, tires, which are often between 3.5-5 inches (8.8-12.7 centimeters) wide. This bike makes it easier to ride on unstable or soft terrain, such as sand, mud, or boggy areas, which may be encountered on your tour. 

You will start by cycling over the green hills and volcanic rocks near the Krafla volcanic caldera before exploring the lava river Elda, where you can see the path of lava that flowed down the hillside during the 1724 eruption. The group will traverse single tracks, gravel roads, and trails before cycling along the continental rift, a truly memorable experience! 

A bike, helmet, and experienced guide are all included in this tour. Be sure to dress comfortably in warm layers as the weather in Iceland is notoriously unpredictable and can be cold or wet in the hills above Myvatn.

The fat bike tour takes place in the true backcountry of North Iceland. It's a remote area, and there are no amenities. Packing snacks and water is highly recommended since you can’t purchase refreshments until you return to Akureyri.

Mountain biking is an active sport suited for participants aged 15 or older. The cycling route is fun and exhilarating but not too difficult, so even new cyclists will be comfortable on this tour. 

Travelers looking for a thrilling day of exploring North Iceland’s stunning Lake Myvatn area by fat bike will love this three-hour tour with all equipment included. Check availability now by choosing a date.
