Our Iceland mountain bike holiday is a wild roller-coaster journey in a land unlike any other. With surprises round every corner, it's a guaranteed sensory overload for mountain bikers. From the incredible series of waterfalls at Haifoss, the riding follows a mix of jeep track and singletrack through the remote Tolkienesque landscape of the Fjallabak. Venturing into an area that rarely sees bikes, we cross lava fields and enjoy views of the active volcano, Hekla. After a relaxing soak in the Landmannalaugar hot springs and overnight there, we continue this classic ride by way of a series of river crossings and via the stunning Eldgja Gorge to the foot of the Vatnajokull Icecap. Heading southwards, our cross-country bike route leads through a surreal black volcanic desert, with jagged mountains on one side and the Myrdalsjokull Icecap on the other. We end up at Porsmork, close to the southern coast, after 6 full and unforgettable days of mountain biking across the interior of Iceland. One thing to bear in mind is that we will enjoy near-constant daylight, so it will never be too dark to ride! Remember, too, that the weather is notoriously unpredictable and can have a big influence on the difficulty of the ride. Not for the faint hearted, this is a memorable journey and a real wilderness adventure.
