Project Description

– Only 20 min from downtown Reykjavik –

The Two Lakes Tour is a self-guided fatbike ride for all ability levels which takes you on a gorgeous scenic trip through the protected Lake Hafravatn and Lake Langavatn watershed area located by Reykjavik and ends with an excellent home-cooked meal and friendly atmosphere at the House on the Hill (Husid í Holtinu),a hidden gem nestled between the two beautiful lakes with an magnificent hilltop view over they valley below.

The tour begins at Húsið í Holtinu where you will meet your hosts John & Heidi. They will get you all set up on your fat-bikes and provide you with helmets, water and a map detailing the route you will be taking. They will also give you a brief overview of the area you will be covering and point out great spots for taking pictures of the amazing scenery or for taking a break along the way. And, for the more adventurous among you, they will also show you several excellent places where you can take a dip in the lakes or in the beautiful Seljadalsa River.

Upon returning to The House on the Hill, you will be invited to sit back and relax and enjoy a freshly prepared home-cooked meal (including dessert) while soaking up the peaceful ambiance of the surrounding nature. You might even be lucky enough to spot some of the more elusive neighborhood critters, including foxes, mink, owls, falcons and the enormous Icelandic raven or– weather permitting–the paragliding that launch from atop Mount Lali overlooking Lake Hafravatn!
