Cyclists from all over Iceland and beyond are coming together for the 16th annual Blue Lagoon Cycling Challenge on the 7th of June this year. Organised by the Reykjavik Cycling Club and Blue Lagoon Spa, this 60km race is open to anyone over the age of 16 and promises to be a real challenge to enthusiasts from around the world. The race starts at Kaldarselsvegur and crosses varied terrains, from paved roads to gravel paths, with the total elevation gain coming to an impressive 600 metres. The finish line is at the Blue Lagoon, where competitors can take advantage of their free entry and relax.
If you’re interested in exploring Iceland yourself, in a less gruelling manner of course, take a lot at the Mighty Fine Company’s range of breaks.
