QUAD BIKES AND R.I.B. WHALE WATCHING – CLOSER TO NATURE, CLOSER TO THE WHALES

Iceland is full of amazing experiences, so why not double up? ATVs take you closer to nature, while RIB boats are known for getting you up close and personal with our amazing marine life. Where else could you enjoy quad bikes and whales on one tour?

 

PART 1: QUAD BIKING IN ICELAND – MOUNTAIN VIEWS

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.

PART 2: R.I.B. WHALE WATCHING: SMALLER, QUICKER AND MORE PERSONAL

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.

 

Whales, Puffins and Amazing Views of Reykjavik

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.

 

Our Whale Watching Guarantee

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.

 

Our Icelandic Weather Guarantee

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:

  • The fun choice: a RIB puffin and coastline tour + a whale watching tour on one of the bigger boats
  • The boring choice: your money back!

 

*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.

 

Tour Highlights

  • Get as close to nature with the whales, puffins, and wildlife as possible without disturbing them.
  • The RIB boats are fast and can cover a bigger search area than the classic whale watching boats.
  • Only 12 people per boat with expert whale guide for a small group experience
  • Less time than the “Classic Whale Watching tour”, only 2 hours from the harbor to harbor.
