After morning pickup at your Reykjavik hotel, watch signs of civilization recede into the lunar-like landscape on the short drive to base camp. Meet your experienced guide and prepare for the adventure with a protective helmet, gloves and warm overalls. If you opted for a 2-seater quad bike, decide who will take the wheel. No experience is necessary, as all drivers will get an orientation to the bike’s controls and take a practice spin around a safe area to get comfortable.
Once ready, set off with your guide in a convoy, first along paved roads that wind through the open grasslands surrounding the city outskirts. Turn off onto gravel tracks and make your way to the shores of Hafravatn lake, where you can admire the glassy surface framed by snow-capped peaks in the distance.
Feel the true power of your bike’s off-road capabilities as you climb the rocky slopes of Mt Hafrafell. From the summit, enjoy magnificent panoramic views of the capital below, surrounded by sweeping stretches of grassland and icy ranges. Get an adrenaline rush as you cruise down the mountain tracks and back to base camp.
Relax in the transfer vehicle on the drive back to your Reykjavik hotel, where your 1-hour ride concludes.
