Skaftafell on Wheels biking trip takes you over sands and glacier-rivers, past a glacier tongue, into Iceland's tallest birch forest. This ride will take you from one extreme landscape to another while stopping at some of the locals best kept secrets. Biking through the Morsárdalur valley we will witness first hand the destructive path left by the quickly receding Morsárjökull glacier and the river it feeds. We will aim for a forest, yes - a forest in Iceland, formerly guarded by trolls and outlaws but open for those that join us on this ride. We will then leave our bikes behind for a short hike up to Vestragil where we can soak our weary feet in a hot spring and for the braver of the bunch, a dive into true Icelandic spring water- it is as clear and cold as they say!
Due to the National Park´s restrictions on biking this is a unique opportunity to explore the park in a short amount of time, learning about the natural history of the area with our experienced guides. Rent a bike or bring your own and join us through this wonderland of fire and ice.
