We kick off from Bláfjöll road. From there the route is mainly downhill and flat all the way to town. For the most part of the way the trail is made of compressed mud where you can gain speed and enjoy some fast turns. We will also see some fun technical bits with a few rocky sections. The downhill parts are fast but never too steep.

This trail will suit anyone from the average rider to the advanced one.

The last part of the trail leads us through one of the most popular outdoor areas of the city. We ride through Heiðmörk and into the city. From there we’ll move on into the city centre using almost solely gravel routes through one park to another.

The trip will end in 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 take a bath, enjoy some snacks and wrap it up.
