Just beyond Reykjavik lies a stunning and dramatic natural playground. Perfect for a half-day adventure, our ATV tours put you in the driving seat. Morning or afternoon, single activity or combined sightseeing tour – it’s up to you.

The tour starts with an adventurous ride in the backlands of Reykjavik through rivers and an old lava field all the way to the Hengill mountain range and Hellisheiðarvirkjun, the power plant for the capital area. You follow the trails into the mountain range to a valley called Instidalur. There we have a little surprise: A secret hot spring is waiting for you. If the temperature is right, you can take a swim in the warm and relaxing river. And if you thought the drive up was amazing, wait ‘til you see the views: In good weather conditions, you can see all the way from the whole Hengill volcanic area to the south coast beach and Eyjafjallajökull glacier.

Most of our tours are perfect for beginners. Volcanic Springs tends to suit riders with a little bit of experience, and/or those who are in good shape. At 3 hours, this ATV adventure takes you on an action-tour of changing landscapes, river crossings, mountain views and see a natural hot spring on this amazing tour.
