Tour description

We start our tour by visiting the Perlan area, which features one of Reykjavik's landmark buildings, the dome-shaped Pearl, set in beautiful surroundings. The route then takes us to the golden sands of Nautholsvik geothermal beach.

The enchanting Seltjarnarnes peninsula is our next destination. The northernmost part of the peninsula is a public park and nature reserve. Nature lovers and bird watchers will relish visiting Grotta, a small island connected to the peninsula by a tidal reef, and home to more than a 100 bird species. Grotta boasts a lighthouse, spectacular views in all directions and simply stunning summertime sunsets. Biking along this coastline is an experience not to be missed!
