Explore Reykjavík on the Run!

Reykjavik Running Tour

Are you an experienced, enthusiastic runner/jogger? Did you bring your running shoes to Iceland, but not sure where to go for a nice run in Reykjavik?
The City Run is a scenic 7-8 kilometer/ca 5 mile run (or jog) that starts at Austurvollur. We run towards the domestic airport and take a look at the geothermal beach in Nautholsvik, where hardy locals like to go for an ocean swim. After that, we will explore the woodland trails of Oskjuhlid and take a look at some old watchtowers built there by the British military during the second world war. We´ll then head up to the Pearl, where you´ll get a nice overview of Reykjavik. On our way back downtown, we will pass the church of Hallgrimur (yeah, the one where everybody goes to take a selfie…) and go through some of the nicest neighborhoods of old Reykjavik, back down to Austurvollur where the run ends.
We will run at a comfortable pace (around 5.30 – 6.00 min/km, or ca 9 – 9.30 min/mile, depending on the group of course) and make various stops along the way. Please keep in mind that you are responsible for your own safety and well-being on this tour. By taking part, you accept that you will not hold CityWalk liable for any eventualities.
