Off the beaten path – hiking & biking

3d/2n – hiking – biking

This is a tour for those looking to decouple themselves from the noise of modern time and connect with nature and themselves. In this multiday tour we bike and hike our way through abandoned coves and deserted fjords in East Iceland. It is a great opportunity to head off the beaten path and explore the side of Iceland few tourist get to experience.

 

Day 1

On day one we bike from the little fishing village of Eskifjörður to the abandoned cove of Vöðlavík with a short hike to get an overview of the area. Once in Vöðlavík, you’ll find a black sand beach between two mountains, beauty and tranquility. At the traveler’s hut at Karlsstaðir dinner will be prepared and we’ll spend the night.

 

Day 2

After breakfast, we bike up the mountainside from Vöðlavík cove and over fjord of Viðfjörður. Viðfjörður, although now deserted, used to be the center of transportation in East Iceland. From there we go over to Neskaupsstaður where we will spend the night at the farm stay at Skorrahestar.

 

Day 3

On the last day, we set off from Neskaupstaður and head over the mountain pass Oddskarð up to700 meters above sea level. From there we bike downhill back to where we set off in Eskifjörður.
