From the mountains to sea level
Only 45 minutes drive from the city hides Reykjavík’s mountain biker’s “home run”. This great single track lies across an amazing lava field creating a unique scenery for the trip.
We kick off from Bláfjöll road. On the first part of the way we'll follow the single track known as Jaðarinn (e. The Edge). The trail has a lot of diversity. Everything from fast, compressed mud sections to rocky bits where technical manoeuvring on the bike is required.
Please note that some prior experience of mountain biking is required to enjoy this trip to the fullest or some dedication towards challenging yourself in a new adventure! The trail is suitable for anyone from the average rider to the advanced one. If familiar with the single track scale (STS) it's a S1 grade.
The second part of the tour leads us through one of the most popular outdoor areas of the city. From where we leave the Edge we ride through Heiðmörk and towards the city. Reykjavik city has some nice green areas with fun trails which will lead us all the way to the city centre. Along the way we'll learn some about Reykjavik and enjoy the nice and easy cooldown.
We'll finish the trip will end at the city’s only beach resort, Nauthólsvík. As it’s Iceland it’s not a traditional beach, it’s a beach with geothermal heat which makes a hot pool just by the sea. We’ll relax enjoy some snacks and wrap it up.
