The first part of your tour is a mountain quad biking adventure. Our ATV basecamp is only around 15 minutes from Reykjavik, so we can pick you up from your hotel* and have you there in no time. No experience is necessary, and our expert guides will make sure you are fully prepared for a safe and exciting experience.
Your quad bike tour takes you on a route along the lovely Lake Hafravatn, and a variety of terrains to have fun on. Then it’s onwards and upwards as you bike to the top of Hafrafell mountain – the high point of your journey. From there you should be able to see the Hengill mountain range, Iceland’s third most active volcanic system, together with Hellisheiði, the geothermal power plant for the capital area. A spectacular view over Faxaflói bay and the whole capital region, Bláfjöll mountain range and Esja, Reykjavik’s house mountain, is waiting for you.
R.I.B. boats (Rigid Inflatable Boats) are quicker and smaller than your usual whale tour boats. That means you cover a wider area in a shorter time – giving you the best chance of catching sight of the marine life off the coast. It also allows you to get much closer to wildlife, including whales, dolphins, puffins and more. And with a maximum of 12 people per boat, it makes for a more personal whale watching experience.
As well as searching for the rich marine life in the waters beyond Reykjavik, you’ll get a unique perspective on the city. We will take a tour of the coastline, including a close encounter with the dramatic Harpa concert hall.
Whales are much more unpredictable than quad bikes. So if you are unlucky and can’t find any, we have a Whale Watching Guarantee: you can try again for free on a classic non-RIB whale watching boat tour.
The Icelandic weather is moody and unpredictable. Unlike the bigger boats, that means RIB tours of the whale habitats occasionally have to be canceled. If we are unlucky with the weather, then our Icelandic Weather Guarantee offers you two options:
*Hotel pick-ups are not included in the price of the tour. You are also very welcome to make your own way to our base camp. Just ask for details.
Cancellations due to weather: We sometimes need to cancel the whale watching part of this tour due to winds in the main whale habitat area. In such an event we will offer you two choices.
Tracks are dependent on weather and trail conditions.
