Mosfellsbær Routes


Walkers, hikers and cyclists will love the extensive network of paths and cycling routes in this stunning part of the city!

The routes are of varying difficulty. You can stroll comfortably along the seafront, cycle along the rivers Varmá or Kaldakvisl or take a more challenging hike up one of the many hills and mountains around Mosfellsbær (Mountain Borough).

The most challenging hike is Mt. Esja, (914 m/2,999 ft) which provides a beautiful panoramic view across the Reykjavík Capital Area, Reykjanes Peninsula, Snæfellsjökull Glacier and beyond. A little less demanding is the hike to the top of Lágafellsklif, which provides an excellent view over the surrounding area.

Here you can find a map with hiking routes in and around Mosfellsbær
