Information about Bláfjöll

 

The Blue Mountains are a beautiful mountain range of the tuff type, located around 20 km from Reykjavik, by the lava plateau of Hellisheidi. The mountains are the most popular skiing venue for the people of Reykjavik and its surroundings.

The mountains offer excellent slopes for downhill skiing, cross-country skiing and snowboards. The area is strong with volcanic activity, with frequent earthquakes and the lava that became Kristnitokuhraun lava field flowed from there in the year 1000. Kristnitokuhraun is located at the outskirts of the Blue Mountains. Also in the area is the fascinating underworld of the lava tube Leidarendi.
