1hr ATV adventure & Northern lights Hunt from Reykjavik


ATV Tour Following hotel pickup in downtown Reykjavik, transfer to the ATV center to meet your adventure guide and get set up with your gear. Listen to a short safety briefing and instruction on how to operate your ATV, then don the provided thermal overalls, rain gear, helmets, balaclavas and gloves. Climb on to your ATV and set off through the frozen tundra. Ride along the shore of Hafravatn Lake at dusk and ascend the impressive Hafrafjall Mountain. Follow off-road trails through deep snow as the darkness falls and enjoy panoramic views over the Icelandic landscape from the top of the mountain.  Return to the ATV center to warm up, sip a cup of coffee and catch your breath before continuing on to the second part of your tour.  Northern Lights Tour Board a comfortable tour coach bound for the mysterious Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis). Reykjavik is located in the 'Auora Oval', which makes it one of the world's best places to catch Mother Nature's spectacular light show. Leave the city's buzz and listen to engaging commentary about this natural phenomenon from an educated guide as you chase the lights around the area, jumping out to see the most impressive displays.

About operator:

Safari Quads is an ATV & Buggy tour operator located in Reykjavik, Iceland. Our company was established in 2003 making us the oldest ATV Quad tour company in Iceland! Our operation had quite a humble beginning; we set our first roots on a farm in the countryside of West Iceland. Our tours were rugged back then – we like to think of them as ‘vintage’, but this was the birthplace of our passion and that is one thing that has not changed. We aim to provide our guests with an authentic experience with intimate exposure to the fascinating spectacle that is Iceland´s natural landscape. We left the farmland behind in 2008 and returned to civilization in Reykjavik to set up our latest and greatest basecamp. We are now located under 15 minutes away from the heart of the city making our tours easily accessible to adventurous travellers. Reykjavik´s backyard has proven to be an alluring natural playground for our ATVs and buggies with pristine mountains and stunning lakes.
