Operated:  Weekends June-September

Mt. Esja, the mountain range seen north of the capital, is quite the sight to behold, particularly up close.  This summer we’ll be offering a family friendly mountain bike tour on a fairly easy trail north of Laxnes farm.  The trail circles Mt. Mosfell, taking around 2 hours to complete.  We’ll start the tour by biking down Mosfellsdalur valley along Kaldakvisl river, around Mosfell into Þverárdalur valley, right under Mt. Esja.  After a quick break we´ll continue the circle following an old horse trail back to Laxnes farm.

This tour will only be available on weekends with a limited number of participans.  Private tours are available in a limited capacity, please contact the farm for more inforamation

Three types of bikes are available for this tour.  The hardtail bike is the default bike included in the price.  Additionally a full suspension bike and a fatbike are available at an extra price.

Please Note:  The route above is in a rural area, should weather or route conditions be unfavourable a different route may be selected.

Other tours, both private and group tours are available with more information here.

Before hitting book please select what type of bike you want.  Whether you want the hardtail bike which is included in the price or you want an upgrade you´ll have to select it in order to choose your proper bike size.  This is very important in order for us to have the right bike ready for you on the day of departure.

While the tour has various routes we can use depending on the weather most of them have rivercrossings and/or water.

As this is an outdoor trailbike tour you´ll simply need to dress according to weather although we highly reccommend hard bottom shoes, gloves and a light sport jacket.

Right now we only have adult bikes available.  This tour will definately not be suitable for children under 8 years old but we are currently looking into medium sized bikes hoping they´ll be available this summer.
