“My name is Thor”, he said. “Are you ready for some action?!”
We nodded enthusiastically, and grabbed jumpsuits and helmets before jumping onto monster ATV’s. We were about to experience the Icelandic Outback.
Quad biking with Safari Quads is the ultimate Icelandic adventure. Riding well off the beaten path, often through lakes, rivers and ravines, we powered our way uphill through extraordinary scenery before reaching the peaks of Hafrafell & Úlfarsfell where we were greeted with spectacular panoramic views over Reykjavik.
Booked onto the Twin Peaks tour, this was not your average quad ride. The safari quads were huge, and, in this instance, size definitely made for a more memorable experience!
Incredibly large and powerful vehicles, fully equipped with 4WD to tackle more difficult terrain, we had an absolute blast zipping through back roads and mountain trails as we made our way through the mountain ranges.
We tackled every type of terrain possible, literally off-roading through river crossings and rocky roads, through mud and grass routes, and climbing steep hills on the side of intimidating mountain tops. We watched the countryside change into wilderness as we took in the beautiful back-country of Reykjavík.
Quad biking in Iceland was an exhilarating experience and a great way to experience the great outdoors. We can’t wait to revisit in winter and take the tour again, this time at night, with the hopes of watching the northern lights dance over our heads.
