Hellas Loop Map

Hellas (Hellasgarten), located in the lush and sprawling Nacka Nature Reserve, is a mere stone’s throw from Stockholm city centre and a local’s favourite for mountain biking. There are hundreds of kilometres of cross country singletrack to keep all levels of rider ripping up new routes for themselves every visit.


“Flat and technical” are what the majority of Hellas’ tracks are known for, with a lot of rock slabs, roots and north shores to try. According to local pro rider Aaron Gooch, “the terrain in Hellas is one-of-a-kind. The ground has lots of bedrock, which sticks up pretty much everywhere, resembling a high alpine terrain but on the flat.”

When you take a rest from all those technical descents to stop and look around, you’ll see thick woodland, tranquil lakes, and the city skyline in the background. This route is an 18km blue loop taking you past many of Hella’s scenic highlights.
