Cycling in Iceland is the best way to go.
Reykjavik Bike Tours has offered bicycle tours and bicycle rental since 2009 and Segway tours from 2013. This family business is owned and managed by Stefan Helgi Valsson and Ursula Spitzbart. Together they have nearly 40 years of experience in the travel business.
Ursula first came to Iceland 12 years ago, fell in love with an Icelander and his country, started a family and wrote a book in the German language about her experiences as a German living in Iceland. Ursula worked at the Technical University of Munich in Germany for several years as a professor’s academic assistant in food technology. She then worked for Rotel Tours for four years as a tour manager for German tourists visiting Scotland.
Stefan has been a full-time tourist guide since 1988, a tourist guide educator and trainer and a college and university lecturer in tourism subjects. Once a prize winning bicycle racer, Stefan now enjoys admiring the sights and scenery from the bike saddle and entertaining visitors with local stories.
Reykjavik Bike Tours is the first company in Iceland to offer daily scheduled bike tours of Reykjavik and day tours from the city. Tours are available all year – weather depending in winter, of course. Reykjavik Bike Tours offers private bicycle tours for families and groups as well as five scheduled tours: Classic Reykjavik, Coast of Reykjavik, Golden Circle & Bike, Vestmannaeyjar Isles & Bike, and Lake Challenge.
Classic Reykjavik – 2.5 hrs / 7 km
This tour is a perfect introduction to the capital city of Iceland. Participants can expect to see some of the city’s hidden secrets while learning about its history from a professional and enthusiastic local tourist guide. Participants get to know what the city is all about – in terms of its history, which museums are not to be missed, which restaurants have been getting great reviews, current special events and much, much more. Perhaps the most important aspect of this tour, apart from the light exercise, of course, is the ample opportunity guests have to ask the local guide questions.
Coast of Reykjavik – 2.5 hrs / 18 km
This tour’s main attraction is Reykjavik’s coastline and the often-beautiful evening light along the north, south and west coasts of Reykjavik. Highlights include Oskjuhlid forest, Reykjavik’s geothermal beach, Reykjavik University, Grotta nature reserve and lighthouse.
Golden Circle & Bike – 8 hrs / 25 km
This tour includes the usual stops along the 240 km so-called Golden Circle route, Iceland’s most famous tourist route. Highlights include Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir geothermal area, National Park Thingvellir (Parliament plains) and one or two more places. Participants bicycle about 25 km along some of the most beautiful parts of the Golden Circle, mostly in National Park Thingvellir – the most historical place in Iceland. Since 2004, it’s been on the UNESCO’s list of world heritage sites.
Vestmannaeyjar Isles & Bike – 12 hrs / 12 km
This tour includes a guided mini-bus transfer – a 30 minute mini-cruise with the local ferry and sightseeing by bicycle on Heimaey Island. The island visited is the largest and the only inhabited island in the Vestmannaeyjar Isles archipelago. Tour highlights include the 1973 lava field, Pompeii of the north – a street which was covered with pumice during the eruption and is now being brought to light, and much, much more. There are only few cars on Heimaey Island, and there are many places of interest within a short distance of each other – which makes it an ideal place to bicycle.
Lake Challenge – 6 hrs / 64 km
This tour includes a guided mini-bus transfer to the scenic National park Thingvellir which is within an hour’s drive from Reykjavik. The ride around the lake offers scenic views of the lake as well as the volcanoes and lava fields in the area. The route is on paved and gravel roads with some but fairly small hills.
Segway Tour of Reykjavik – 2 hrs
Segways are new in Reykjavik in 2013. Reykjavik Bike Tours is proud to pioneer this mode of tour transport in the city. Our most popular tour is 2 hours which typically includes passing places such as the Harpa concert hall, south coast of the Reykjavik peninsula, Hofdi House where Reagan and Gorbachev met in October 1986, Reykjavik’s botanical gardens, Hallgrimskirkja memorial church, City lake, University of Iceland and more. Private tours available upon request.
