Spice up your trip to Iceland with this small-group tour from Reykjavik, combining ATV adventure and horseback riding. Adventurers keen on immersing themselves in Southwest Iceland's unique geological landscapes through thrilling activities should look no further than here.

This combo tour in Iceland opens with a convenient pick-up from your accommodation in Reykjavik. If your hotel is missing from the list, you'll be picked up at a designated tour bus stop near the area for a hassle-free start to your day.

Accompanying you for the next eight hours are experienced local guides who will keep you safe and entertained. They have extensive experience in ATVs and horse riding and have insider knowledge of the local culture and history. 

From the Icelandic capital, the excitement takes you to a beautiful farm in Hafnarfjordur. Here, you'll meet the gentle and majestic Icelandic horses. These animals are mostly known for their smaller size and five gaits or ways of walking.

After pairing with a horse, wearing the provided safety equipment, and a quick riding demonstration, you're now ready to explore the surrounding wilderness of Hafnarfjordur.

Mount Helgafell and Hvaleyrarvatn lake offer a captivating backdrop for your horseback riding journey. Their surrounding moss-covered and black lava fields, lush valleys, and the Blafjoll mountains on the horizon will make your ride extra thrilling.

While enjoying the panoramic views, you can take some landscape and action photos with the assistance of your guides to commemorate the trip.

After a satisfying first leg of your tour, the guide will take you back to Reykjavik. While in the capital city, you may have your lunch independently and prepare for the incoming ATV drive.

Soon after, the guide will take you eastward of Reykjavik to a basecamp outside Mosfellsbaer township. Modern ATV units await you at the camp for two hours of quad biking in rugged terrain.

Please note that a valid driver's license is required if you plan on driving. If you don't have one, you can still join the fun as a passenger, as every quad bike can seat two people.

The exciting ATV ride starts as you navigate the diverse landscapes on the outskirts of Mosfellsbaer. The guide will lead you through a gravel road tracing the shores of the peaceful Lake Hafravatn. Each twist and turn, including some water crossing, boasts an exhilarating perspective of the region's landscapes.

As you ascend the slopes of Hafrafell mountain, the track becomes more challenging, providing an adrenaline-pumping ride. It's lined with lupines and other vegetation in summer, while winter brings layers of snow.

To cap off an adventurous day, you'll be treated to sweeping vistas of the surrounding areas at the mountaintop. On a clear day, you'll see and photograph Mount Ulfarsfell, Reykjavik cityscape, Reykjanes peninsula, the bay area, and more.

Your eight-hour guided tour ends with a convenient drop-off at your hotel in Reykjavik.
