  • Overview & Itinerary


    Rather than follow the beaten path of large tour busses or the footsteps of other hikers, explore the hills and mountains just outside of Reykjavik on the seat of your own ATV/Quad bike! This hour long journey will take you to the top of the Hafrafjall Mountain with impressive views of the surrounding landscape along the way, and a stop at the peak to take pictures.

    Hotel pick-up and drop-off are optional, and this is tour suitable for everyone including groups, individuals, families, stag and hen parties, or even corporate events. You’ll be done in time to spend your afternoon enjoying another part of Iceland.

    The ATV´s base camp is located here.


    Your tour starts with an optional pick-up at your hotel in Reykjavik. From there, your expert guide will drive you to the base located in Mosfellsbær town located about 15 minutes from downtown Reykjavik. If you chose not to be picked up make your way to the Lambhagi base for 9:30am.

    Once everyone has arrived, your guide will give you a short briefing about staying safe on the bikes and show you all you need to know about how they work. You will be provided clothing and riding gear before your departure on the bikes. When everyone is ready, you’ll take off on your bike on an exciting journey up Hafrafjall mountain climbing higher and higher until eventually you reach the top. The vista provides a stunning platform to the Reykjavik capital area and mountain Esja as well as a bird’s eye view on the famed Icelandic landscape.

    Pictures taken, you’ll head back down the mountain back to the base, enjoying the ease of driving these powerful ATVs through the hills and mountains just outside of Reykjavik. You’ll have the unique opportunity, being on an off-road vehicle, to avoid the crowds and visit places the big tour busses and walking trails miss. This hour long journey is well worth your time if you enjoy the rush of off-roading and want to gain a new perspective on Southern Iceland.

    You’ll return to the base after coming down the mountain, and from there you can either be dropped off back at your hotel in Reykjavik or if you arrived independently continue to enjoy the rest of your day as you wish.
