Fjord Bikes

Borgarfjörður eystri (in east Iceland) is one of those places where you can always look into the distance and see something incredible that you would love to experience up close. Mountain Biking allows you to get personal with nature, yet also lets you experience the thrill and speed of zooming through the landscape. Combine this with the striking natural landscape of the area surrounding Borgarfjörður eystri and you are in for an unforgettable ride. 

We at Fjord Bikes invite you to experience with us the amazing birdlife, the natural wilderness area and historic fishing village of Borgarfjörður eystri. Close to the town you can find the Puffin Marina, which is by far the best place to see the fabled Atlantic Puffin up close. In the surrounding areas you can get into the wilderness. This is an area in the surrounding viks and fjords, where decades ago there was a vibrant agrarian society, now deserted and reclaimed by nature. There you can find beautiful waterfalls, expansive vistas, valleys, and gulches made of the colourful rock called Rhyolite. Ride the long way around to the black sand beach in Breiðavík, where rhyolite rocks polished by crashing waves give the sand a splash of colour. Brave up the challenging old trading route Sandaskörð to witness the beauty of the highlands surrounding Mt. Dyrfjöll and the unrivalled natural splendour of Stórurð. When biking in Borgarfjörður, you’ll always find something new to do.
