The Mountain Cruiser is our two-hour ATV adventure from Reykjavík. We offer a pickup service from your desired destination. Our base is set in Lambhagi in the outskirts of Mosfellsbær town, only a 15 min drive from downtown Reykjavík. We begin by gearing up in warm thermal layers and waterproof clothing. We want you as comfortable as possible to maximize your ATV experience. Next our expert ATV guides will show you how to safely handle our powerful (650 cc engine size) Super-ATV’s. We will begin our journey on a gravel road alongside the beautiful lake, Hafravatn, and continue up the mountain trail to the top of Hafrafell. Once at the top, the entire Reykjavik area and surrounding mountain range are in full view. Next we will head over to the top of Mt Úlfarsfell where Reykjavik, the bay area, and Reykjanes Peninsula stand right before you. These spectacular views make the ride that much more enjoyable. On a clear day, you will be able to see Snæfellsjökull (Snaefellsjokull) glacier hundreds of kilometers away. Make sure you book our most adventurous quad bike adventure. Do not miss out on this one of a kind scenic excursion.
We also offer a one hour ATV adventure tour called Mountain Ride.

Yes, we do. Langjökull Ice Cave is a magical experience, the tour has no minimum age and is a wonderful option for the whole family. Whale Watching with our partner company Elding has been a favourite with families traveling with young children, these guys have a great success rate in seeing whales (upwards of 98% in the summertime).
Another option would be the Landmannalaugar Safari on this tour you get to explore parts of the Icelandic highlands and bathe in natural hot springs. Most of our jeep tours are also suitable for children over the age of 6 years old. If you would like a nice and relaxing experience we would also recommend the Golden Circle & Secret Lagoon tour.

We’ve partnered with the Kolviður Fund in a new carbon offsetting program, which passengers can select to participate in at the time of booking.
The Kolviður Fund is the oldest, most respected carbon offsetting program in Iceland. With your support, one tree will be planted in special Kolviður forests in Iceland to carbon offset your tour with us.
Kolviður forests are strategically planted to absorb the maximum amount of CO2 and the forests are protected for a minimum of 60 years. During their lifetime the trees absorb carbon and store it in their root system, trunk, and branches. Trees also prevent soil erosion and maintain storage of carbon in the soil.
