Overview

This tour is one of the most popular Mountain Bike tours in northern Iceland. You cycle in the evening on a mountain bike and start sightseeing immediately. On your way, you will stop by the underground bakery where the locals bake their well-known Geysir bread. You then continue past the first steam generator in Iceland and head to the old steam bath, the old bathing caves close to the fissure Cave of Grjtagj, and after visiting the cave we go to the Mvatn Naturebaths for an hour of relaxing in the warm water and natural steam baths. After a nice soak, you get back on your mountain bike and head back.
You can either bring your own swimsuit and towel, or you cna rent some at the Mvatn Nature Baths. The cycling adventure is on a gravel road for a large portion of the way. There are a couple of small hills, but it is generally an easy ride. Multiple stops will be taken, so you will have time for photos and to enjoy the scenery.

    My husband and I had a wonderful evening of cycling around the local area and visiting the Myvatn Nature Baths in September 2022. Ragnar was a wonderful tour guide, with loads of local knowledge and as we were the only people on the tour, was very flexible about timings at the baths. We were treated to a wonderful sunset from the water with incredible views over the lake. Wonderful memories from our honeymoon in Iceland!

    We left for our hike about 4pm with Elizabeth, our lovely guide. She has lived in the area for most of her life and so is full of interesting information about life out here and also about the local environment. The hike was well judged so that we felt like we'd accomplished something but also still felt relaxing enough to take in the stunning views. She also took us off the main paths to see a range of sights we wouldn't have known existed if we were just following the main tourist paths. The nature baths were the perfect end to our evening and to our travels around Iceland. Thank you Elizabeth for such a wonderful experience!

    We loved this tour. Elizabeth was wonderful! She was very knowledgeable and explained the area and traditions to us as well as the baths and process there. She also was patient with us when we were at the baths and bike. We never felt rushed. It was one of the highlights of your trip.

    Well, on the day of our trip, the weather was not cooperative - rainy and freezing temperatures - and members of my family were neither prepared nor excited for the prospect of biking. Ragnar, our guide for the evening, suggested an alternative tour using vehicles. He was an awesome guide and showed us the sights in Reykjahlid - it was an entertaining and informative visit that culminated in some quality time at the nature bath. This was a top-notch experience and a testament to the professionalism, quality, and attitude of the tour company and its leaders. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

    Ragnar was an amazing tour guide. He was deeply knowledgable about the area and was a kind tour guide. He showed me a wonderful lava cave and showed me around the Myvatn Nature Baths. I would recommend to take this tour if they happened to be in the area.

    Great tour, magnificent views and unique terrain. Elizabeth our guide is a native and was very friendly and informative. I Recommend this tour.

    "Raggy" is a good fun bloke and very knowlegeable about all things Iceland. His family have been land owners for 200 years. He took us to many normally inaccessible off beat places including the family steam hole where they bake their bread 3 times a week. Great history story, lava tunnels and for me, a geologist, he knows his stuff. After sore knees and two hours riding (I'm 75 years and my other six friends on the ride similar age) Raggy took us into the hot baths , organised the short cuts and had the beers delivered to our hands in the baths. Top experience thanks Raggy and we'll send some more Aussies David
