SINGLE TRACK MADNESS
A 2 DAY ALL-MOUNTAIN ADVENTURE

Single track madness Landmannalaugar MTB
 

BOTH DAYS INCLUDE JAW-DROPPINGLY FANTASTIC SINGLE TRACKS IN WHICH YOU WILL EXPERIENCE ICELAND’S YOUNG VOLCANIC SOUL AND THE LOST-IN-THE-WILD FEELING


Your guide will pick you up in the morning at your hotel in Reykjavik. After a quick trip to our local office for a bike fit and the last practical preparation, we begin the tour with almost one hour drive to the starting point of the first ride.

TRAIL I
THE VOLCANO DESERT OF DÓMADALUR

THERE IS NOTHING THAT MATCH A MTB RIDE IN THIS AREA OF EVER CHANGING MYTHICAL LANDSCAPE

We never get enough of riding the trails in this mythical area of the Icelandic highlands. The landscape keeps changing before your eyes as you bike further: endless moss-covered lava fields surrounded by black volcanic wasteland. The last track of the day will lead straight to our hut, placed in a hidden valley, in the middle of nowhere.
The dinner will be served with the supervision of your guide.

TRAIL II
LANDMANNALAUGAR, THE HIGHLANDS OASIS

FAMOUS FOR ITS PALETTE OF PASTEL COLORED MOUNTAINS AND EPIC SINGLE TRACK TRAILS

The stunning area of Landmannalaugar is the home of the most spectacular single tracks trails in Iceland. The word undulant is probably the best one to explain what characterize the rides in Iceland. We will have multiply 100 – 300m climbs and some shorts hike-a-bike sections during the day, always followed by a rewarding descents.
On our way back to Reykjavik, we will stop by Ölverk Restaurant in the village of Hveragerdi, known for their home-brewed craft beer. A stop to taste those local products is something we just can’t pass up.
