Enjoy the Westfjords on a guided bike tour. Our bike tour is great for those who want a more intimate experience exploring unspoiled nature. Seeing the incredible sights of the Southern Westfjords on a bike will be an unforgettable experience that is fun, active and safe.
We offer a wide variety of exciting trips available from our office in Patreksfjörður. You can also rent a bike and travel on your own.
The Wow tour
Rauðasandur is the Westfjord’s most famous beach with its red tinted sand bordered by black cliffs and the blue sea. Rauðasandur’s tranquility, and the local guides knowledge of the best panoramic views, will make for great memories.
The cycling portion of the tour will begin at our office at Þórsgötu 8a, 450 Patreksfjörður. From there we will cycle to the bottom of the fjord where we´ll make a stop to enjoy the surrounding landscape and birdlife, see the steel ship Garðar and hear some of the ship’s history.
From the bottom of the fjord we’ll head uphill, over Skersfjall mountain, down hairpin curves and be rewarded with an amazing view – definitely a WOW moment!
The French Cafe at Rauðasandur welcomes us with a cup of chocolate or a cup of coffee and a traditional Icelandic waffle. Enjoying the view from the terrace overlooking the sand.
After resting up you can choose to either bike back up the steep hill (and get a good exercise) OR our car can take you back to Patreksfjörður where you can visit our local swimming pool and relax in the hot tub with an amazing view over the fjord.
