Your tour begins when you meet your expert guide at the Budin village store in Borgarfjordur Eystri. Today’s small-group excursion has a maximum of four participants, allowing the tour leader to meet the needs of each person.

The trip is customizable, and the guide will select trails to match the group’s experience. Your guide will give you a mountain bike and helmet at the meeting point, ensuring you’re ready for a safe and enjoyable ride ahead. 

When the group is ready to depart, you’ll head off to explore little-traveled trails around Borgarfjordur Eystri. Your guide will use their local knowledge to take you off the beaten path, traversing routes unknown to most travelers.

The untouched landscapes around Borgarfjordur Eystri are stunning. Today’s tour lets you get close to nature, traversing rugged inland routes and marveling at breathtaking coastal vistas.

Borgarfjordur Eystri is a mountain biker’s paradise, boasting diverse natural wonders to feast your eyes on as you ride the trails. From grassy green meadows and valleys to striking black sand beaches and towering mountains, the scenic landscapes stretch far and wide.

Your guide knows the best trails and will adapt the route to the group’s ability. You should have a good fitness level and recent experience with biking to enjoy up to five hours in the seat to the fullest. Of course, there will be plenty of time for rest stops, where you can capture photos and refuel with a snack or two.

Brunavik bay is one area your guide may decide to take you. The group could follow the rough 4WD track over the Hofstrandarskard pass to a hut near the sea, crossing grassy areas before exploring the colorful beach at Brunavik. 

Another option is to bike from Borgarfjordur Eystri over the Husavikurheidi pass, 1565 feet (477 meters) above sea level, to Husavik. This trail is approximately 12 miles (19 kilometers) long.

Or, a longer track takes riders over the Gagnheidi pass to the Breidavik inlet and then to Husavik. Breidavik and Husavik both have a hut offering shelter, a toilet, and other facilities for intrepid travelers.
