Ride to an erupting volcano. Unique opportunity to use a bike to witness an eruption. This is a trip for the technically capable rider.
Bike to the volcano! Lava Trails just got hotter! A unique opportunity to bike to an erupting volcano. We drive 1 hour from Reykjavík and bike one hour to the volcano on dirtroads and technical doubletracks with some challenging steep parts with loose soil.
This certainly is, by far, not the best & most flowy trail in the country. But it definitely takes the win of being a unique experience - using a bike to reach an erupting volcano. We stop at the site for an hour for everyone to take in the absolutely stunning views of lava flowing from the crater.
On March 19th an eruption started on Reykjanes peninsula, not far from Reykjavik capital of Iceland.
A steady flow of lava is coming from 3 craters. There is no way to say how long the eruption will last, it can be hours, days, years or decades. Scientists speculate a long rather than short eruption. We tailor the trip to weather.
The trail is not safe for riding in certain directions of wind because of fumes from the eruption.
This trip is suitable for riders with intermediate skill level. If you just started mountain biking this is not the right trip for you.
This trip can and will be tailored to the moods of the volcano.
