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.
