Overview

Enjoy a fabulous opportunity to experience the adrenaline rush of driving an ATV (Quad bike) through breathtaking landscape and discover Icelandic unique locations such Þingvellir National Park, Gullfoss Waterfall, and Geysir Geothermal area all in one amazing day.

What's the plan:

You will be picked up in a bus from your hotel or guesthouse in Reykjavik for this tour. Meet up with an English-speaking guide who will provide background and texture to the sights along the way.

Golden Circle tour: Set off for Þingvellir National Park, which is one of Iceland’s most significant historical sites. It was here that the country’s first parliament was founded in 930 AD, making it the oldest known Parliament in the world.

Head along mountain tracks toward the world-renowned geothermal area around Geysir hot spring, where a column of water thrusts upward to a height of 180 feet.

Continue to Gullfoss waterfall, where the wide Hvita River plunges furiously over a natural staircase of stones. When one first approaches the falls, the crevice is obscured from view, giving the appearance of a raging river that simply vanishes into the earth. You inch so close to the edge of the falls that you’ll be able to feel the spray of the cataract on your face.

ATV Trail Ride: Experience the rush of driving an ATV through stunning landscape and up to Mt. Hafrafell that boasts awe-inspiring panoramic views over the surrounding areas.

After getting all necessary gear such as helmets, overalls, gloves and other stuff, the guide will give you an informative safety talk. Once prepared, hop-up on your ATV, either solo or with a companion, and embark on your journey out from the outskirts of Reykjavik up to Mt. Hafrafell. Enjoy stops along the way for your guide to explain the road ahead, for you to take photos and videos or just stretch your legs. .

You will be dropped back at your hotel in Reykjavik at tour’s end. However, hotel drop-off would depend on route and traffic restrictions.
