Tour description

ATV Tour

A frendly guide from Safari Quads will pick you up and transfer you to the ATV Basecamp. Your quad bike tour takes you on a route along the lovely Lake Hafravatn, and a variety of terrains to have fun on. Then it’s onwards and upwards as you bike to the top of Hafrafell mountain – the high point of your journey. From there you should be able to see the Hengill mountain range, Iceland’s third most active volcanic system, together with Hellisheiði, the geothermal power plant for the capital area. A spectacular view over Faxaflói bay and the whole capital region, Bláfjöll mountain range, and Esja, Reykjavik’s house mountain, is waiting for you. After your tour you'll be dropped off at the pick-up location for your Northern Lights Tour. 

Northern Lights

It's hard to describe the feeling when you watch the Northern Lights dancing in the sky. It is definitely an experience of a lifetime.

With that being said, we created this Northern Light tour to increase the chances for you to witness Iceland's natural phenomenon. Our guides are experts when it comes to Northern Lights and together with them, we are making a decision each day before 18:00 whether the forecast is good enough for the hunt or not.

The group size on this tour is a maximum of 19 people and all our guides are advised to find places where we can avoid big crowds. We want this experience to be as personal as it can be. Once our guide found a good spot, we will jump out of the car and prepare our cameras. Of course, your knowledgeable guide can assist you with the camera setting in case you need help. It is also time to grab a cup of hot chocolate and to try one of the typical Icelandic donuts called "Kleina". They are included in the price as well as cozy wool blankets to keep you warm.

Even with the best of guides, sightings can never be guaranteed. In case we can't find any lights on the tour, you are welcome to book again for another day. Just inform us before 14:00 the next day, so we can guarantee you a seat.

In case we can't operate the tour at all during your stay in Iceland, we will fully refund you the tour price.
