Whether taking a relaxing ride through Reykjavik’s city streets of or rushing over rugged landscapes, biking in Iceland is an invigorating way to explore unspoiled nature while breathing in our fresh clean air.
Like many cities in Europe, Reykjavik is bike-friendly with charming city streets to explore as well as a multitude of amazing mountain bike tracks. With the opening of the new cycling and walking path between Reykjavik and Mosfellsbaer, it is now possible to cycle all the way from Grotta on the tip of Seltjarnarnes to the west of the capital, through Oskjuhlid in central Reykjavik, where the Pearl landmark building is located, and onwards to Mosfellsbaer, around 30 kilometers (18.5 mi).
Iceland is a rewarding but also a demanding locale for a long-distance bike trip. The countryside is ideal for the more adventurous mountain biker, particularly during summer months. A ride along the Ring Road reveals amazing variety of nature from green riverbeds, black desert landscapes and colorful mountains to steamy hot springs, wild horses and highland tracks. To protect Iceland’s vegetation, all off-road riding is forbidden. Helmets are a legal requirement for children under 15 years of age.
