BIKE BETWEEN THE TECTONIC PLATES
ELECTRIC-SUPER FAT BIKE TOUR TO EXPERIENCE THE SOLITUDE OF THE HIDDEN TRAILS IN ÞINGVELLIR NATIONAL PARK

Make the most of your Golden Circle experience and bike between continents on the old viking trails in Þingvellir National Park. The rift valley’s awe-inspiring landscape is unique and riding the Electric SuperBike with Fat tires for a smooth ride is the easiest and most fun way to see it all. You will be taken by the silence and scenic landscape and thrilled by the adventure.
The scenery is simply amazing and this is one of the very few places in the world where visitors can overlook the tectonic plates drifting apart, leaving in between them the depressed block of land filled with fissures and planes that we call Thingvellir. The name refers to the legislative general assembly that was held at the site for a two-week period each summer with Icelanders from all parts of the country gathering in the are to discuss important issues, settle disputes, trade goods or just to have fun. This is the very foundation of the Icelandic national culture and it was for that reason that Thingvellir was accepted on the World Heritage list for its cultural values in 2004.
