ReykjadalurLýsing á ensku:

Fantastic route near Hveragerdi (approx 40 min drive from Reykjavik).
Starting from Hveragerdi you ride up the mountain using the old gravel road.
Once you are up on the plateau you follow the road untill it takes you to the main road (ringroad nr. 1) which you need to cross. Continue west for a hundred meters untill you get to the road leading to Ölkelduháls. Follow this gravelroad north for about 8 km up to the top of the mountain (approx 460 m high).
Once at the top, lower the saddle because from there on its pure downhill fun.
Follow the tracks leading you down the Reykjadalur valley untill you end up in Hveragerdi again.

The route leads through a highly thermal area with plenty of steam and hot water coming up through the ground. A warm river flows through the Reykjadalur valley. Its a great opportunity to wash off the sweat from climbing to the top.

Take great care not to fall into any of the hot mud pits that you find along the way!!!
