Hammarbybacken Map

Hammarbybacken is a lift-operated ski slope on the outskirts of Stockholm, which transforms into a mountain bikers playground in the summertime. A T-bar lift takes bikers to the top of the 90-metre mound, where they can choose between a few fun reds and one challenging black line, which was the route for the Swedish World Championships a few years ago.


It doesn’t have the biggest vertical drop in the world, nor the most diverse range of runs, so if you want to extend your adventure, the hill is conveniently located on the edge of Hella, a mountain biking paradise which you can ride to in about 15 minutes.

This adventure takes you down one of the reds on Hammarbybacken. If you want even more of a challenge you can incorporate this adventure into the much much longer HammarbyHill XC racecourse, a 40km marathon featuring Stockholms’s favourite recreational mound.
