TRAIL I
HENGILL VOLCANO MOUNTAIN RANGE

CHALLENGING RIDES THROUGH ICELAND’S MOST POWERFUL AND IMPRESSIVE GEOTHERMAL REGION

Ride in the area of Hengill, a volcano that last erupted two thousand years ago. The location surrounding the volcano is renowned for its hot springs, natural warm rivers and steaming fumaroles. Awesome and rather challenging single-tracks are waiting for us this day with several short hike-a-bike sections.
Before hitting the road for about an hour, to get to our hostel, we will have an early dinner at Ölverk Restaurant in the village of Hveragerdi. They are known for a premium wood fired pizza´s and their home-brewed craft beer. A stop to taste those local products is something we just can’t pass up.

TRAIL II
SINGLE TRACK TWIST IN THE WESTMAN ISLANDS

UNIQUE PLACE WITH UNIQUE TRAILS, SURROUNDED BY THE ATLANTIC OCEAN

You’ll fall immediately in love with these remote and unspoiled, twisting single tracks, surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of the islands. They takes us to the edge of a sea cliffs, through lava fields and the the top of a volcano.
The Westman Islands are historically and geographically. And also one of Iceland’s most distinctive places and the scenario of many of our precious historical events.
We use a ferry from the harbor of Landeyjarhöfn to take us back and forward from the mainland. The dinner will take place at our charming hostel, Midgard Base Camp.
