You’ll ride about 10 km (6 miles) along a paved secondary road. You’ll enjoy the view of typical Icelandic countryside and farm animals as well as Langjokull glacier on a clear day.

After watching a spouting spring at the word famous Geysir hot spring area (admission not included),  head for the Parliament plains – Iceland’s most historic place, geological wonder and national park which was added to UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 2004.
