Description

Enjoy a thrilling ATV ride and a guided Golden Circle sightseeing tour on this 10-hour excursion. Travelers looking for an active adventure combined with the natural treasures of the country’s top sightseeing route should book this combination tour now.

Your day starts with a pick-up from one of several designated bus stops in Reykjavik. Once everyone is on board, the bus driver will take you to the Hafrafell mountain area, the starting point for your ATV excursion.

Previous experience is not required to drive the ATV. Each vehicle can fit a driver and passenger, or you can pay a single supplement if you prefer to ride solo. Drivers must have a current license, and children as young as six years can enjoy riding as a passenger. 

The ATVs are automatic and easy to handle for an enjoyable ride. Your guide will ensure you have a helmet and know how to operate the vehicle safely. Then it’s time to head off on an adrenaline-pumping ride across the rugged terrain of West Iceland.

You’ll get to test the ATV on different landscapes, enjoying the diverse scenery as you ride. The group will head to Mount Hafrafell’s peak, where you can appreciate sweeping vistas across the capital region.

After an exhilarating ride down, the bus driver will take you to the Golden Circle. Today you’ll visit the country’s top attractions, three stunning natural wonders that every traveler to Iceland must see.

First up is the breathtaking Gullfoss waterfall. This powerful two-tiered waterfall is also known as the “Golden Falls” and often features a rainbow in front on sunny days. Here you can marvel at the water cascading down the Hvita river into a deep canyon, a spectacular sight to behold.

The second attraction is the Geysir geothermal area, named after the Great Geysir, which lies dormant. However, you’ll enjoy plenty of action from the Strokkur geyser, which bursts with a dramatic spray of water every five to ten minutes. Take your time to appreciate the otherworldly landscape at Geysir, with its boiling mud pits and steaming fumaroles.

Your last stop for the day is Thingvellir National Park. It’s full of beautiful nature and is also a geologically and historically significant area. The North American and Eurasian tectonic plates are gradually moving apart here, so Thingvellir is the only place globally you can walk between the continents!

As you marvel at the gorgeous scenery and appreciate the park’s geological features, you’ll also discover Thingvellir’s important place in Icelandic history. The Althingi parliament was established at Thingvellir in 930 and boasts the title of the world’s oldest surviving parliament.

After an unforgettable sightseeing tour, the bus driver will take you back to Reykjavik and drop you at one of the designated bus stops.

Don’t miss the perfect combination of action and nature with this full-day ATV adventure and Golden Circle sightseeing tour. Check availability now by choosing a date.
