"The first settlers of Iceland arrived in on the south coast (875), not to far away from Bike Farm. Almost since that day, sheep have been roaming the mountains surrounding our farm, forming what we today call our Single Track.
With few modifications, our tracks brings you biking down epic nature of spectacular canyons & waterfalls, far away from everything but birds and sheep."
We start the day by gearing up the Jeep & heading into the mountains, the jeep will bring us through historical terrain of volcanos & glacier rivers.
After we enter our land, we prep our bikes and start the ride by taking in some of the beauty that Fagrifoss (Beauty waterfall) has to offer before we start the epic single track ahead!
The first part is a moderate uphill section following both single track (sheep tracks), and the open wild nature. You know what they say about things going up… must come down eventually and this trail does definitely not break the law of gravity! With a variety of technical but sweet flow of single track, surrounded by this friendly landscape makes this tour perfect for both intermediate and advanced riders.
Being a farmer to us means being a protector of our land and that does also count for the single track we ride, we keep it natural, clean but super rideable. The best and probably most unique thing about our trails is that most of it has been shaped and formed by sheep for many centuries, without any man-made interference.
