Prepare for an exhilarating day of Mt biking and hiking in the natural beauty of South Iceland.

Our expert guide will take you to one of our favorite off-the-beaten-track locations, where we like to unwind and have fun on our own days off. You’ll experience a truly authentic side of Iceland that few visitors ever see. With the help of our knowledgeable and experienced guide, you’ll discover hidden gems and explore areas that are not on the usual tourist trail. Get ready for a fun and active day tour with Midgard.
From Midgard Base Camp we transport the Mt bikes to Mt Þórólfsfell, located by the start of what we consider our Highlands. There we unload and either Mt bike or hike with the bike up the top of the mountain. The mountain is 574 meters high. Whether we Mt bike or hike, after arriving at the top we enjoy the spectacular views of the surroundings, Mt Eyjafjallajökull, the one that erupted in 2010, Þórsmörk valley and the highlands. From there we head down 1-2 short steep hills to start with, thereafter a kind of a plateau until we reach a wonderful double track that we follow all the way down again, overlooking the highlands the whole time. When down we ride partly on single tracks and old roads until we reach the car again.
