What You Can Expect

1 Hour 'Mountain Safari' ATV Quad Adventure from Reykjavik

Head off-road on this quad bike tour from Reykjavik

After morning pickup at your Reykjavik hotel, watch signs of civilization recede into the lunar-like landscape on the short drive to base camp. Meet your experienced guide and prepare for the adventure with a protective helmet, gloves and warm overalls. If you opted for a 2-seater quad bike, decide who will take the wheel. No experience is necessary, as all drivers will get an orientation to the bike’s controls and take a practice spin around a safe area to get comfortable. 

Once ready, set off with your guide in a convoy, first along paved roads that wind through the open grasslands surrounding the city outskirts. Turn off onto gravel tracks and make your way to the shores of Hafravatn lake, where you can admire the glassy surface framed by snow-capped peaks in the distance. 

Feel the true power of your bike’s off-road capabilities as you climb the rocky slopes of Mt Hafrafell. From the summit, enjoy magnificent panoramic views of the capital below, surrounded by sweeping stretches of grassland and icy ranges. Get an adrenaline rush as you cruise down the mountain tracks and back to base camp. 

Relax in the transfer vehicle on the drive back to your Reykjavik hotel, where your 1-hour ride concludes.

This tour was awesome! Our guide Indy was very knowledgeable and courteous. 3 out of four of us in my group had never been on an ATV and he made sure we were comfortable before we set off. I would definitely book this again on a future visit.

This was one of the best ATV tours that my husband and I have ever been on. We've done similar tours in the Caribbean and Hawaii. However, this was actually an adventure. We took the ATVs up a steep, muddy, icy hill and when at the top you could see the whole city of Reykjavik and surrounding mountains covered in snow. It was quite breathtaking. The ride down was just as treacherous but in a fun way. If you like riding this vehicles then you will so enjoy this trip.

The trip was about 45 minutes late in starting with some guests who booked failing to turn up. I was kept up to date regarding this and eventually picked up by a nice fellow who took me to the base. I was part of a group of 5 and we were very well looked after. The quads were excellent and easy to use. We did an hour's trip into the mountain with excellent weather and a nice view at the top. Well worth doing.
