​Have you ever seen the unique nature of East Iceland? 

It's an experience not to be missed!

Take an ATV/quad bike tour into Hallormsstadur national forest. In the woods, you will enjoy varied landscapes, including fully-grown trees, rocks and everything in between. 

Hallormsstadur forest has been protected since 1905. It is, therefore, the oldest and biggest forest in Iceland. 

Before hopping aboard your ATV, you will be provided with overalls, a helmet and gloves.

You'll head on to the base, where your instructor will teach you how to operate the ATV/quad bike and let you know what to expect on this tour.

Start the journey and head off into one of Iceland's most beautiful natural areas. Your guide will drive with you through the forest.

You will drive through streams of water, and sometimes dirt will splash on you. This is all just part of the fun.

The trail can get rugged but don't worry your 4x4 ATV/quad bike is up to the task and can travel quite fast and give you an adrenalin rush.

Along the journey, you will take a few stops for your guide to teach you about the history of Hallormsstadur, and you will have the chance to take plenty of pictures. 

If you are lucky, you will be able to see the wildlife in the forest. In the Spring, it is not uncommon to see the abundant birdlife and other animals have been spotted, too.  

If you are sharing an ATV/quad bike, you and your partner can switch when the tour is at its halfway point.

This tour promises to be an exhilarating ride through one of the only stunning natural forests in Iceland.

Bring your good mood on the day and be ready for a great adventure.
