SEE ICELAND LIKE NO OTHER TOUR IN THE COUNTRY CAN PROVIDE. THIS IS THREE DAYS OF ENDLESS BEAUTY CROSSING LAVA FIELDS, ENTERING LAVA CAVES, GEOTHERMAL SPAS AND MOUNTAIN SUMMITS ON MYSTICAL PEAKS

The local best kept secrets will be at your fingertips for unforgettable experiences we’re excited to share with you! 

 

DAY ONE ITINERARY – SUMMIT THE PEAKS AND EXPLORE THE UNDERWORLD

You’ll begin the tour with heart-racing action straight out of our base camp as the first trail your tires hit will be to the summit Úlfarsfell Mountain. A panoramic view over Reykjavík awaits! From there you’ll get an overview of the vast territory you’ll soon conquer into the Reykjanes Peninsula before setting off to the trails that wind through the Blue Mountains. This mountain range painted with vibrant green moss offers views only accessible to ATVs and the bravest Vikings! Prepare to be awestruck as you immerse yourself in the wilderness far from civilization.

 

EXPLORE THE NETWORK OF LAVA CAVES

Your next adventure will bring you well below the Earth’s surface in a network of lava tubes in Leiðarendi Caves for a guided lava caving tour! More beauty awaits as you pass the remote Djúpavatn Lake tucked between the lava crusted peaks. Our final stop of the day will allow you to gain insight on how truly alive the volcanic island of Iceland is!

 

SEE AND FEEL ICELANDS GEOTHERMAL POWER

The Earth cracks and sizzles with mud pools and intensely hot geothermal pools at Krýsuvik Geothermal Area. We’ll make the final push to Hvergerði where a cold beer and a place to put your feet up awaits! We’ll call Hvergerði home for the night! We suggest you rest up as day one was just a warm up!

 

DAY TWO ITINERARY – BIGGER MOUNTAINS, BIGGER REWARDS

Rise and shine in the beautiful town of Hvergerði! We’ll start the day checking out some local hot springs, then head back towards the Blue Mountains region. The trails will wind and twist through the mountains with an storybook like feel that could really convince you that elves and trolls do really exist!

 

WITNESS THE ENERGY OF OUR VOLCANIC ISLAND AT WORK

In the distance, you’ll see steam rising from the Earth in great quantities which means we’re nearing our next stop, Hellisheiðarvirkjun Geothermal Plant. This is one of Iceland’s largest geothermal plants and the main source of energy for Reykjavík city.

 

THE NATURAL PLAYGROUND OF HENGILL AND THINGVELLIR

The trails will lead you Mosfellsbær Valley and through the Hengill Mountain region to arrive at Thingvellir National Park. Icelanders consider this the most beautiful and historically relevant place in Iceland. It is considered the birth place of Iceland with its stunning glacier capped mountains, glacial rivers and lakes. There is plenty to in this UNESCO World Heritage Site and we’ll make sure you delve into all that it offers!

 

A QUEST WELL CONQUERED, PUT YOUR FEET UP VIKINGS!

You’ll end the day and tour in the best way possible at Laugarvatn Fontana Spa for a cozy relax in the geothermal pools surrounded by peaks towering in the distance. Awesome right? We think so too!

 

DAY THREE ITINERARY – MAKING THE MOST OF WHAT LIES AHEAD

Good morning Vikings! Day three departs from the Laugarvatn Fontana Spa area after your evening of relaxation. By now you should be relaxed, rested and fired up for your third full day of off-road trail adventures. It’s your last day – so let’s make it count!

 

THINGVELLIR NATIONAL PARK IS YOUR PLAYGROUND, EPIC VIKING HISTORY SURROUNDS YOU

Thingvellir National Park contains trails that meander all throughout the landscape. We’re off to take full advantage of these trails leading to summits that give way to panoramic sights across this Viking land. No single place epitomizes the history of Iceland and the Icelandic nation better than Þingvellir by the river Öxará. As we have to make our way back towards Reykjavík, we’ve managed to do so in the most adventurous way possible.

 

THE FINAL HOURS MAY VERY WELL BE YOUR FAVOURITE (BEFORE YOU REALIZE IT’S ALMOST OVER…)

It’s up to you and the power of your ATV to conquer the mountains of Hengill that lie ahead! We’ll be taking a more challenging route through Hengill to give a different perspective and thrill of this stunning area. We’ll revisit Mosfellsbær Valley on the way back crossing rivers and mud pools that stand in our way. You’ll feel like Vikings after a successful conquest as you see Reykjavík city arising in the distance. You’ll be wearing the well earned dirt, mud and sweat with pride on the final stretch of this route. As you make your way back to our base camp as the base of Reykjavík’s mountains, your guide will congratulate you for your bravery! You saw Iceland in the best – way – possible.
