The area is known for its contrasts and diverse landscape. From this short tour you ride through green fields and black, rocky sands, over small creeks and past a big, dark, streamy glacier river and past a small, typical Icelandic forrest. On your one side you have the flat land reaching to the sea far away on the horizon and on the other side you have the mountains with the ice-covered Öræfajökull, the largest active volcano in Iceland (2110 m), towering over them all with its many glacier tongues flowing down the mountain hills.
