THE VENUE – HELLISHEIDI PLATEAU
Located just east of Reykjavik, Hellisheidi is a wild and beautiful volcanic plateau. Backed by mountains, its rugged lava flows are softened by a thick coating of grey-green moss. Just 30 minutes drive from the capital, this is the setting for the ATV excursions.
THE QUAD BIKING
First you'll transfer from Reykjavik to the quad bike base. The guides will introduce you to the powerful Yamaha 700cc machines, lined up waiting for you. After a safety briefing it's time to set off with your guide, full throttle into the wilderness. Quad bikes are easy and fun to drive and you'll soon get the hang of it once you're on the trail. Racing through the lava fields is really exhilarating but we'll also make stops to take in the views. The standard trip is one hour but a two hour version Mountain Cruiser is also available.
