Full description
It’s no more than 15 minutes from your Reykjavik accommodation to the quad biking base camp. After being picked up you will be taken to the base camp to be geared up and given instructions and safety training. No experience is necessary. Your expert guides will make sure you know everything you need for a safe and fun ATV adventure. Then you will be off riding through a variety of terrains as you head for Ulfarsfell Mountain. The ride to the top is a chance to experience the true thrills of quad biking. When you get to the top you’ll be rewarded with fantastic views across the whole city, the ocean, and the surrounding mountains. After your quad bike adventure to Reykjavik Peak Mountian, you will head back to Reykjavik harbor for lunch. The old harbor is one of the coziest parts of town. There’s a nice selection of little restaurants and cafes, and your guide will be happy to make recommendations. While you refuel, you can look out across the bay and imagine the magnificent creatures that swim below the surface. After lunch, you will head out beyond the harbor to go whale watching. The boat is waiting as you head off in search of magnificent Minke whales and the other rich marine life of Faxafloi Bay. A 3-hour guided sea tour provides a fascinating insight into the life of the sea, and great views back to Reykjavik. Whales are a lot harder to predict than quad bikes, so sightings are never guaranteed! Cross your fingers that mother nature is feeling generous!

After being picked up you are driven about 10 minutes away to Safari Quads. Here you are given everything you need to wear for the quad bike. They give you a really good talk through about controls etc before letting you on the quad. The scenery on the way is outstanding, so beautiful! The guides are excellent, so professional and patient and ready to help whenever you need it! The quad biking is so much fun! After this you are dropped off at the harbour to wait for the whale watching trip. The guide we had for this was brilliant! She was sharing lots of knowledge with us on the way out into the bay and letting us know exactly when and where she was spotting things. There's also a cafeteria on the boat so you can get a hot drink to warm up a bit. Overall it was an excellent day! Would definitely recommend!
