From Reykjavik: ATV & Helicopter Tour

1. From Reykjavik: ATV & Helicopter Tour

There’s so much to see in Iceland, but only so much time. That’s where this combo tours help you make the most of your time in Reykjavik and birds eye helicopter views from above allow you to see more than you ever could on the ground! And what a combination – adrenaline-filled ATV action in the mountains, followed by a fascinating ride in the skies of Iceland. Plus it’s safe and suitable for everyone. You will be picked up from your Reykjavik hotel and be taken on a short journey to the quad biking base camp. There you will be given all the safety and driving instruction you will need to drive your own ATV. No experience necessary – so all are welcome. From base camp, you will head across the countryside and up to the mountains. The ride itself is an amazing buzz, topped only by stunning views across the Reykjavik area. After you conquer the off-road territory, you will be dropped off to explore the skies while taking in aerial views of Reykjavik and the local mountain ranges. You’ll be captivated by these unforgettable views. The highlight of the tour includes landing your helicopter on top of a mountain for 20 minutes to get out and stop to appreciate the view. This is a once in a lifetime experience. If you’re going to do a helicopter tour anywhere in the world, there’s no better place than Iceland. Please note that the ATVs are 2-seater, so you can either choose to share or choose to drive your own ATV by selecting the 'single rider' option.

What people are saying about Capital Region of Iceland

I have given this a 5 star as the experience was amazing and guide Alex on the ATVs provided excellent guidance and was great fun. However there was a mix up with the booking as the Helicopter Service changed our times without informing the ATV Company. This caused a mix up in our pickup location, our start time and did shorten the time we were on the ATVs. Please be aware that this service is provided by two different companies and if one calls you make sure the other one is informed also. Would highly recommend.

ATVs - Watching the sunrise over the mountains was truly amazing. Guide was great and it was a nice small group (5 quads). Thank you Sir Cactus for the entertainment from the pick up point. Helicopter - definitely a worthwhile experience whilst in Iceland. The views were remarkable and it was such a clear day. 6 people in the helicopter but didn’t feel cramped. Pilot was pleasant and helpful.

Amazing experience. In the air for around 30 minutes in total and 15 on top of the mountain to take pictures and enjoy the scenery. Nothing like flying in a plane, much more comfortable and less scary. The pilot was very calm and even had a joke about on the way back

Wow, what a ride! Super nice crew and an amazing bird’s view of all Reykjavik. We stopped 15 mins at the top of the mountain to see firsthand the geothermal wonders of the island. It’s worth every single minute.

Great experience - super worth it.. The team are great, they were amazing .. extra careful with us, very enthusiastic, they take care of you when gear you up
