Day 4 | Highlands | August 15, 2017
The early superjeep shuttle up to Hekla – Iceland’s most active volcano – is an adventure in itself.

These are truly some of the local's favorite trails and gravel roads in the highlands. After an exhilarating day, retire to the huts with an optional evening ride in the surrounding area.

The rich contrast of black sand and bright glaciers starts the day with breathtaking views. Pedal through the colourful Rhyolite mountains and wind down a steep trail to a green oasis on lush river banks. The wildly-formed canyons along this section of fast singletrack reflect back to an age when our mother earth was still in her infancy. To cap this choice day of riding, our end point provides an unforgettable panorama of distant glaciers and azure lakes. Today breakfast, lunch & dinner are included.
Day 6 | Þórsmörk | August 17, 2017
