Maxim picked us up exactly on time and took us to the base. We were given warm clothes and helmets to wear. He fully explained how to operate the ATV and to stay safe. We had a great time driving, it was challenging but fun and 1 hour was just right! The views were spectacular! Would definitely go again!

Superb excursion. Alexander who was our guide explains the region very well. The road is not long to do the activity. The view is beautiful. If you want extreme sport it is not this outing but for the life and duration of the excursion I give 5 stars without problem.

Adrenaline rush

James was our guide. He was quite personable and very helpful and patient. This was my first time out and it was very easy to learn. The ride was fantastic, fast, bumpy, careful...Whatever you make it. Lasts about an hour. At the top, there were beautiful views, awesome pictures. Will definitely go again!
