We Begin this trip at Íshestar farm where we saddle up and go for a classic horseback riding adventure. We will explore the lava surrounding Mt. Helgafell volcano while riding through vast lava fields. We will also journey across sprawling hillsides to Lake Hvaleyrarvatn.
As we ride through this breath taking scenery, you will have the chance to see all the different formations that occur in the lava. The horses stroll along safe riding paths with the beautiful Bláfjöll Mountains. These tower above the horizon creating a dramatic scene.
After the horse riding part of the day, we will drop you off in Reykjavík downtown where you have time for lunch or to relax before part two of the day.
Please note that this is a combination of two tours. There is a short break in Reykjavík between the tours during lunch time.
We will travel out of the city once again to find some 650 cc CanAm Outlander max Quad bikes. These will be waiting outside our base in the outskirts of Mosfellsbær town, ready to take you on the ride of your life.
We will start on a gravel road along scenic lake Hafravatn getting to see it from a completely diferent angle. After this we will be heading up a mountain trail to the top of Hafrafell. Upon arrival at the top of the mountain you will be greeted by an amazing panoramic view of the entire Reykjavik area. You will also get great views of the surrounding mountain ranges.
These powerful machines are a great way to explore the hills and mountains on the outskirts of the city in ways that you cannot achieve any other way.
