Tour Description

Head out in the wilderness

Discover astounding natural beauty as you hit the off road trails located on the local mountains just outside of Reykjavík (only 15 minutes from downtown)! The 1 Hour Mountain Safari ATV Tour will call out your inner Viking as you charge to the top of Hafrafell Mountain. You’ll have to overcome rocky lava terrain as you push towards the summit! Your bravery will be rewarded with a stunning panoramic view over Reykjavík city, the harbour leading out to the North Atlantic Ocean and the iconic Esja Mountain towering in the distance. We'll take a few moments along the way to stop and appreciate the view. Remember to pack your camera! Another highlight will take place at Hafravatn Lake which is tucked between the mountains and a perfect place to witness just how pristine Icelandic nature is.

My 25 year old daughter and I decided to try the 1 Hour Mountain Safari ATV Tour during the limited hours of daylight on 20. December. It turned out to be a perfect choice. Safari Quads made it easy to find their location via Google Maps and signs once one exits the highway (note to Safari Quads - it would be useful to have one more sign at your driveway) The building is warm, airy, full of light, and modern (excellent restrooms!). Patrick welcomed us, made us feel comfortable and we were outfitted in warm jumpsuits, gloves, a balaclava, and a helmet and then it was time to hit the road. Ultimately we made our way up the mountain to a wonderful viewing point after driving on some roads. We never felt rushed and we greatly enjoyed the ride. The experience cost us $250 for two people riding on one ATV, but it was a unique adventure and worth the money. At times during the ride I wished that our guide could have given us a bit of information of the area we were driving through, but then again it was nice to just sit back and enjoy our surroundings and take in the beauty of the mountains and the sky, the cozy cottages, and the fluffy Icelandic horses. We felt safe at all times and the equipment was clean and in good shape. As an added bonus we got to see the sun set from above so the afternoon tour was a treat.
