Discover Reykjavík Trails
Mountain bike day tour from Heiðmörk natural reserve through Reykjavík. This tour is a perfect way to explore some nice trails in the "backyard" of Reykjavík and get to know the city through its green areas.
We will start off with a nice ride in the beautiful Heiðmörk natural reserve. Heiðmörk is an area all locals love. It's so close to the busy city of Reykjavík but yet so far. There are endless trails and paths off the beaten track which we will enjoy for the first half of the tour.
After enjoying some snacks outdoors on a short break we will start making our way to the heart of Reykjavík city centre. On the way we will ride through the outskirts of the city all the way to Elliðaárdalur valley through which a salmon fishing river runs (yes, in the middle of the city!). Just after we exit Elliðaárdalur we'll enter Fossvogsdalur valley which is even closer to the city centre.
Before finishing the tour we will have ridden past Nauthólsvík geothermal beach, past two of Reykjavík's University campus sites, Hljómskálagarður park all the way to Made in Mountains headquarters where we'll end our tour.
If preferred we will provide a drop off back at your hotel/accommodation.
