They also use low pressure tires that allow for a smoother ride even when going over rough patches. There are a number of great places to ride in the lava fields and mountains around the greater Reykjavik area for those who desire a thrill ride. For those who want a bit more adventure you could also venture out into the black sand beaches of the south coast and beyond!
