Keep the wind at your back

The birthplace of Björk and Sigur Rós is as popular as it is unique. Outdoor enthusiasts are drawn to the island’s harsh, diverse landscape of volcanoes, black sand beaches, fjords, geysers and steamy lava fields. Biking through this unique country requires a special approach. Given that the wind can blow up to 40 km/h, your route is open. Therefore, each morning before you leave Reykjavik, your guide will suggest a looped route adapted to the daily forecast, so that you can make the most of the weather conditions. The spontaneity of this trip will give you an opportunity to discover a vibrant Scandinavian city, where the cost of living is relatively high and the delicious cuisine centers around fish. Add the glow of a midnight sun on a summer’s night and you have an unforgettable experience!
