Choosing a bike

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.

Are there river crossings?

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

What do I need to wear?

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.

Is this tour suitable for young children?

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.

Are drinks and snacks available?

As this is written on March 22nd we are currently looking into if and what will be available for purchase at the farm prior to departure.

How do I get back from the lagoon

Grayline offers hourly returns to the city with dropoff at/near your residence so all you need to do is be at the return bus 10 minutes prior to departure.

Do I need to bring something with me?

We strongly recommend bringing long underwear, thick socks, suitable clothes for the weather of the day and contact lenses if you wear glasses.  Silfra is quite cold and having something dry and warm to change into never hurts.

 

Who or what is a puffin?

The Atlantic Puffin is one of three Puffin species in the world. It is well known for its bright and colourful beak.  The Puffin is a migratory animal, and only comes to land once a year to nest. Usually between May and August.
It digs a burrow into the ground where it lays the egg. Puffins are extremely good divers, being able to dive down to 60m for food. It is well adapted to life in the water, but is a clumsy flyer.

 

When and where should I arrive?

If you´re not using pickup service for the whale watching (and/or horseback riding) all our tours depart from Reykjavik´s Old Harbour (location)  and the departure time is indicated on your voucher/confirmation. We ask that all our passengers arrive at least 20 minutes prior to departure for check in and boarding (recommended time is 30 minutes to be safe).
