Visit this hidden gem, located only 20 min. from downtown Reykjavík! Located right near the main roads leading to the Golden Circle (rts. 36 & 435), the Two Lakes Tour is a self-guided fatbike tour which takes you on a gorgeous scenic trip through the protected Lake Hafravatn and Lake Langavatn watershed area and ends with a home-cooked meal at the House on the Hill (Húsið í Holtinu). The 2-hour tour begins at Húsið í Holtinu where you will meet your hosts John & Heidi. They will get you all set up on your fatbikes and provide you with helmets, water and a detailed overview of the 10km route you will be taking. After setting off from the house, you will have ample opportunities to stop and say hello to the local horses in their pastures, take photos of the beautiful landscape or even dip a toe in the small rivers you will cross over on your way around the lake! Upon returning to The House on the Hill, you will be invited to sit back and relax and enjoy a light lunch while soaking up the peaceful ambiance of the surrounding nature and the spectacular hilltop views.
I am the host/chef at a home-based business called Husid í Holtinu (The House on the Hill) where my wife Heidi and I host local Icelanders for dinners and other special events at our home that sits overlooking the beautiful Lake Hafravatn. Originally from the United States, I have lived in Iceland for over 14 years now and look forward to sharing my experience and local knowledge with visitors to our countryside paradise.

Fatbike, helmet & water bottle
Some of the sights along the way include: Ulfarsfell (Wolf’s Mountain), Seljadalsa river, Lake Hafravatn, Lake Langavatn, Blafell (the Blue Mountains), Mount Esja and more. 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 paragliders that launch from atop Mount Lali. And of course the House on the Hill :-)
