Full description

Combine two thrilling Icelandic tours without traveling far out of Iceland’s capital, with this exciting combination of an ATV tour and a helicopter flight. The tour begins when you are picked up from the predetermined meeting point on your voucher, either your hotel or the nearest bus stop, and are driven to the ATV base camp on the city’s outskirts. Here, your friendly, experienced guides will provide you with protective gear, before showing you to your quad bike. Once your group is all ready and comfortable, you’ll set off on the rocky trails up to Lake Hafravatn. After riding around its shores, begin a daring ascent up Reykjavik Peak. Stop once you reach the top to take photographs of the colorful rooftops of Reykjavik, the sparkling waters of Faxaflói Bay, and the flat-topped Mount Esjan.

If the weather is notably good, you’ll also see the volcanoes of the Reykjanes Peninsula and the length of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, to its crowning glacier, Snæfellsjökull. Drive back down the mountain to the base camp, where you’ll give back your equipment and be escorted to Reykjavik's Domestic Airport. Once at the airport, meet your pilot, who will brief you on your flight route, before boarding the chopper. Soar through the skies above Reykjavik. The sites of the city are beautiful from street level, even more so from the peak of Hafrafell, but simply without comparison from a helicopter. Your overall journey will take about an hour, but midway through, your pilot will make a mountaintop landing, and allow you twenty minutes to photograph the beautiful surrounding landscapes. The adventure will finish when you land back at the airport, with enough time to fully enjoy the rest of your day.

Fun experience, flexible layout and different way to get out and see other views. We had booked the ATV one-hour tour, could easily have stayed longer. Time flew by. Unfortunately unlucky with the weather so the helicopter ride was canceled but the organizers really did their utmost to try and make it happen. Kudos to them!

This trip is amazing!! The quad tour is a must-do for everyone who wants to explore the nature of the area around Reykjavik away from the main roads, while having fun! Our guide was amazing (and very funny!!). The helicopter tour was about 35min with a landing on a mountain with a view of the area around Reykjavik! The transfer between the Quad-camp and Reykjavik domestic airport (which is very near to the city centre) was very fast and on time. All in all a 10/10 experience!

This trip is done through two different companies. The Safari Quads is amazing! they reached out about our pickup, itinerary, and contacted the helicopter company for us about our flight plan. when the flight had to get canceled for inclement weather, they arranged for the other company to give us a refund and upgraded us to a 2 hour ATV tour. Super amazing
