On your Bike!
This cycling tour is combination of both hiking and biking in very beautiful area of the Fljótshlid Valley. It allows the opportunity to enjoy, and come to know, a small area of South Iceland intimately.
The itinerary on the day is flexible; we adjust the route to take into account the group’s level of fitness, the weather and what participants particularly want to gain from the tour. A typical tour usually includes about 3-4 hours of biking and 1½ -2 hours of hiking (but this ratio can be readily adjusted).
The area in which we cycle is in the area surrounding the majestic Thrihyrningur mountain (667m). The cycling is mainly on gravel roads as well as on earthy/grassy tracks. As well as mountain landscapes (including views towards the famous Hekla volcano and towards Tindfjallajökull icecap), many waterfalls are encountered, including Fossabrekkur.
A popular route is to start from Keldur, visit very beautiful waterfall there and do a bit extreme ride to the Fljótshlid Valley where we will need to cross glacial river, on our bikes and on foot, a very exciting part of the tour!
