After a short 15-minute drive from Reykjavík, we will find our 650 cc CanAm Outlander Max Quad bikes waiting outside our base on the outskirts of the city. There we give you a short safety briefing and show you how the bikes work and then head out on a one hour ATV bike tour to the top of the Hafrafjall mountain. After enjoying the spectacular view over the Reykjavik capital area and mountain Esja, we will return back to the base. Driving these powerful machines is a great way to explore the hills and mountains on the outskirts of the city.
After the ATV trip, we will make a short lunch stop where you can go to a bakery or a supermarket and prepare for the second adventure of the day. After lunch-break, we will take a short drive out to the Bláfjöll (Blue Mountains) area where we will go on our caving adventure. Exploring this magnificent lava cave and discovering the marvels that the volcano created more than 2000 years ago is a trip that everyone will enjoy. The Leiðarendi cave is a perfect example of an Icelandic lava tube and is situated in one of the most active volcanic areas in the world. We will climb, crawl and walk on our travel beneath the surface, learning about the geology of Iceland from your specially trained cave guide.
This is a combo tour so it’s only available with pick-up. Pick up is at 9:00 AM from our available Reykjavik pick-up points. Picking everyone up can take up to 30 minutes but you do have to be ready at 9:00 AM.
Available pick-up points: Arctic Adventures’s pick-up list.
Remember to bring: Warm outdoor clothing, waterproof jacket and pants, headwear and gloves. Good hiking shoes are recommended (note: hiking shoes, waterproof jacket and pants can be rented online beforehand, only available for the caving part).
What if I don’t own all of these clothing necessaries?
Don’t worry, you can always rent the necessary clothing in the booking process.
Driver license is required to drive the ATV and at least 6 years of age to sit behind the bike.
If you book odd numbers of participants you have to pay single rider supplement. If you do not choose it in the booking process you will be charged the extra fee on location.
We recommend bringing gloves to wear inside the cave.
This is a great question. We ask all participants to be ready from the start of the pickup time indicated. This is because you may well be the first pick up of the day. Please be at your assigned location at the start time that you chose when booking the tour.
Here you should wait for your guide.

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 Special Tours, 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 summer time).
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.
