This is a great to for adventurous and adrenaline-seeking people! A way to experience the Icelandic nature and see the unique landscapes in a fun way.

This tour is available from location and with a pick from your Reykjavík accommodation.

Our Volcanic Springs tour is an exciting adventure  along various trails in Mosfellsdalur, by Esja, Reykjavíks signature mountain. It is recommended to be in a relatively good physical condition and have an endurance for 3 hours of riding in the outdoor terrain. Although it’s suitable for beginners, we recommend this tour for people who have a little experience of driving quads. During the tour, we will make sure you fully enjoy the capabilities of the ATVs!

You can expect to be taken off the beaten tracks on gravel roads, rocky and muddy terrain, crossing rivers and old bridges down in the beautiful back-country of Reykjavík. Just a few minutes from the city, you get the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere. We will end the tour with driving up to Mt. Úlfarsfell where you can enjoy the million dollar view of Reykjavík city, the bay area and surrounding mountain range.

The Volcanic Springs experience is definitely one of the most fun ATV tours we offer. Off-roading, river-crossing, dirty and powerful, this is not a tour for the faint-hearted!

The safety briefing will also cover potentially foreseeable scenarios that may arise and explain how participants should react in such circumstances. Our guides will also outline their expectations of participants during the trip where needed and address any specific questions or concerns that may arise during this time.
Any medical conditions or personal health concerns that may jeopardize your well-being or affect your ability to meet the physical demands of the trip must be clearly communicated to the trip leader before the tour start.
