To conquer Reykjavik on a bike

You are invited to take advantage of not quite the usual way of conquering the Icelandic capital – by bike. Taking part in the bike tour around Reykjavik, you’ll be able to see in detail the famous sights the included in the popular tourist route “The Golden Circle” (Southern Iceland): beautiful Þingvellir/Thingvellir National Park with a picturesque lake and waterfall, a delightful “Golden waterfall” Gullfoss, and the valley of geysers Haukadalur (the most famous geysers are Geysir/the Great Geysir and Strokkur).

Do not want to be near the many crowds of tourists? Rent a bike and go on a private bike tour. Thus, you will definitely have a chance to discover interesting corners, not too spoiled by the attention of travelers, and make unique photos.

Also, if you’re a very advanced adventurer, Segway tour is exactly what you need! A leisurely review of the beauty of Iceland will surely bring you to a state of peace.

What else? You can choose one of some private bike tours for all family – together with children (there is no minimum age on such tours). If you order schedule tour, children younger than 10 years old are not allowed.

Just please don’t drive alone on the night roads. Because who knows – maybe, you will meet with Icelandic trolls – renowned pranksters!

I especially recommend a bike ride along the coast of Reykjavik (Coast of Reykjavik bike tour). Unforgettable impressions of the local beauties guaranteed!

  1. Great adventure I’d love to do. I just biked on our rural country graveled lane (street/road). It was hard going up, but the gradual descend or the way down was a breeze of a ride. 😀

    The bikes for hire must cost a fortune, in their thousands! A friend of ours owns a $7k bike (that was in 2005), probably upgrades it every year as the price goes up.
