Come and join this electric bike tour around the crater Búrfell and the canyon around it, Búrfellsgjá. This tour is a great chance to experience one of Reykjavíks most popular outdoor area and go for an amazing ride. On the way, you will witness, among others, a real volcanic crater, a canyon, an old sheep round-up, a rift valley and caves. 

The tour starts when you are picked up in Reykjavík. From there, you'll be driven Heiðmörk area, where you'll mount your bike and head towards Búrfellsgjá canyon. 

On the way, you will pass an old sheep round-up station where farmers used to sort their sheep, which had been roaming free around the countryside all summer.

You'll then continue towards the crater alongside a lava field. You'll see the direction the lava flowed thousands of years ago, from the crater and towards the sea.
