Hop aboard a quad-bike and race through the incredible Icelandic environment with this ATV tour from Reykjavík. Those looking for a fun-filled way to fill up their time in the city need to look no further.
You can either choose to be picked up from the capital and driven just to the base camp, where your adventure begins, or meet your experienced guides on location. Once there, you'll be introduced to your vehicle, which could not be easier to operate. In order to drive, you need to have a driver’s license with you, but passengers can be as young as 6 and still enjoy the adventure.
All equipment, which includes overalls, gloves and helmets are provided. It is still recommended to bring warm clothing with you to ensure your journey is comfortable throughout, and all your focus can be on the surrounding nature and excitement of the ride.
After a quick briefing, you will set out along the edges of the lake Hafravatn, which is beautiful feature regardless of season; in summer it is renowned for its birdlife and surrounding flora, while in winter it is coated in gleaming ice.
You will then ascend mount Hafrafell, right to its peak, where, in clear weather, you will attain spectacular views over Faxaflói Bay, the city of Reykjavík, and the surrounding nature. You’ll have an opportunity to pull over and take some photos, before setting off on an exciting adventure back down.
If both you and your passenger are drivers, you can also use this opportunity to switch seats, allowing you to enjoy the thrill of operating an ATV and the joy of marvelling at the surrounding nature.
All in all, the journey will last approximately an hour. Once you return to the base camp, you will be driven back to the capital city if you elected for a pickup during the booking process. The whole length of the tour from pickup to drop off is not likely to last longer than three hours, meaning you’ll have plenty of time to pack other activities into your day.

You need a valid driving license to drive/operate the ATVs - If you do not have a valid driver license, you are more than welcome to be a passenger.
