THOR/ALL MOUNTAIN - 6 DAY
(3 day mountain biking)

From $3,110 PER PERSON
Includes Flights
(Based on double occupancy)

  • Thor’s garden, or þórsmörk as it is known by the locals, has been carved by the relentless battle between massive glaciers, volcanoes and lava flows.
     

  • This tour features long climbs in the saddle and some extended hike-a-bike treks that are no easy task for mere mortals but rewarded by unique scenery and epic riding.
     

  • The views and play of colors take your breath away and the remoteness makes for a different kind of relaxation as you feel you travel back in time.
     

  • Relaxing by the campfire after a good meal while the midnight sunlight wanes a bit on its rotation around you is the perfect way to end a day on this trip.

    Day 1

  • Flight to Keflavik, Iceland

    Day 2

  • Arrive in Iceland. Our driver will wait for you after you’ve cleared Customs at the Airport and take you to your luxury boutique hotel (Sand Hotel or similar) in the heart of Reykjavik. We already booked you a room from the night before so that you can check right in, enjoy breakfast and rest no matter what time you arrive. Lunch and dinner for day one is not included, unless prearranged, but we highly recommend “Svarta Kaffi” about a block away. Their “Soup-in-a-bread” is an awesome light lunch. For dinner we love a sampling of traditional Icelandic delicacies at “Restaurant Þrír Frakkar” in downtown Reykjavik.

    Day 3

  • You'll begin your adventure in true Icelandic fashion – Our super jeep shuttles you out of Reykjavik along the lush south shore towards the exceptional backcountry of Þórsmörk, and make a brief stop at Seljalandsfoss waterfall before you start crossing unbridged wild glacial rivers that are impassable by regular 4×4’s. On the way you are treated to The Edge trail, a local’s favorite that traces the twists and turns of a lava flow. In the evening you have the option of an easy pedal or a short hike up a mountain to a scenic viewpoint. After a delicious dinner you can indulge yourself with a sauna or a rest by the campfire while the midnight sun briefly hides behind the mountains offering a dusk perfect for a campfire. Accommodation in mountain cabins.

    Day 4

  • Your ride today takes you through ever-changing ecosystems of Thor´s Garden, each with its own unique beauty. Here, birch trees and grassy meadows are a contrast to the volcanic terrain of Day 1. But this is no scenic jaunt, hike-a-bike sections and deep river crossings will keep us honest and work up a mean appetite for a fantastic Icelandic dinner at our backcountry hut accommodations.

    Day 5

  • Today you head to Eyjafjallajökull, the temperamental young glacier topped volcano whose last eruption in 2010 halted all air travel over Europe. A challenging climb up the flanks of this glacier-topped volcano rewards us with stunning views from the top as well as a rigorously fun single-track descent that will leave you wanting more. This is truly a day to remember. After a challenging day biking, you hop on the super jeep for a 2.5 hour drive back to Reykjavík, there in time for dinner.  Dinner this night is on your own, but we highly recommend the downtown restaurants, like Humarhúsið (The Lobster House) for a hearty meal of Langoustine lobsters and other local favorites.

    Day 6

  • Breakfast at Hotel Sand (or similar). Enjoy your free time today to explore Reykjavik. Lunch on your own. We will make arrangements for your driver to be there to pick you up in plenty of time before your flight back to the States.


    SKILL LEVEL:

  • Recommended for strong intermediate to advance. All-Mountain and Enduro riders.

The more challenging the uphill is, the more awesome the views and the ride down.
