Quad Biking (ATV Tours) in Reykjavik

A great way to combine Icelandic nature with sightseeing and get a bump of adrenaline

Best time: all year round

Quad Biking (ATV Tours)

It may be fairly called a three-in-one experience, for you are going to explore Icelandic nature, visit its most outstanding landmarks, and get thrills at the same time. You'll ride the vicinity of Reykjavik, around the Arctic wilderness of vast plains and hills, across muds and rivers, or snow and ice, depending on the season. Besides the four-wheeled fun that normally lasts for a few hours, an ATV quad tour program implies more activities such as ascending mountain peaks, or glacier walking, and what not.

Tour operators provide you with a guide and virtually all necessary equipment. You still are required to bring your own comfortable shoes appropriate to the season, and the driver's license.

Most of the tours offered operate all year, whereas some are seasonal (either summer or winter). The best time is every day—it's all up to your preferences, whether you like snowy landscapes, muddy trails, or grassy sceneries. Riding on snow and ice is more challenging than on dry trails and require more skills. Of course, unfavourable weather conditions may introduce certain changes to the tour availability.
