Starting point

Join us for a fun half-day trip exploring the fjord in all its glory. Get ready to ride on open forest trails as our guides give you all the assistance you need as well as tell tales of life in Ísafjörður, history of the area, and perhaps some local gossip!

What to expect?

  • The journey begins at our base, Mávagarði C (grey building), where you meet your guide and gear up. We then start biking up the main street of the town, Aðalstræti. We bike up towards the mountains and the first slope that leads us to the avalanche barrier.

  • We sneak behind the towering walls and bike along the backside, popping back out to continue along the base of the mountain. We continue along flowing single track towards the forest in Tungudalur where we find the marvelous Buná river and waterfall.

  • For a great view over the fjord, we bike across the valley towards the final avalanche barrier. The short and slightly steep climb up the barrier is well worth the view. From here on it's an easy ride back into town.

What is included?

  • Mountain bike
  • Helmet
