Come along for a thrilling ATV tour, whizzing across the mountains and beaches that create the unique landscape of Iceland: familiar, yet alien, like something you saw once in a dream. You will be picked up by Reykjavik Excursions at your accommodation and whisked away to the Blue Lagoon geothermal spa to change buses and meet your friendly, experienced ATV guides before being taken to the ATV base 5 minutes away from the lagoon.
The fun starts as you whoosh down mountain roads in the direction of Festarfjall, a small mountain which has been painted in vivid orange, burnt sienna and copper after eons of volcanic activity which carved out the coastline on the Reykjanes peninsula. From there, you will explore the black sand beach Selatangar, where you'll have a chance to get off the bike and search the old ruins there. Selatangar was a fishing village before it was abandoned in the 1880s, and the tumbled stones there are the foundations of outbuildings on the beach. You may feel a shiver down your spine, not only because of the sea breezes, but because of the desolate grandeur of this area; it is said to be haunted by a malevolent spirit named Tanga-Tómas. After this brief pause, we will continue our ride, speeding over the harsh, craggy, yet beautiful and brightly-hued terrain of Iceland. Vroom!
After a two-hour ATV adventure, the guide will return you to the Blue Lagoon, where you can choose to soak away the exertions of the day in the warm, blue waters. If you would like to rest instead, or if you are excited to dive into the nightlife in funky Reykjavik, you can forego the Blue Lagoon and take the next available Reykjavik Excursions bus back to the city.
Admission to the Blue Lagoon is not included in the price of this tour, but a visitor's pass can be purchased when you arrive there.
