  • Our guide for the quads, James was very friendly and gave us an awesome tour I wish we could have booked a longer time with him an hour wasn't enough.
    The whale watching tour was equally good we saw several whales and dolphins/ porpoise as well as many birds including Puffins, we also got engaged on the boat.

  • The ATV and Whale watching was a really great time!

    Quad Bike Adventure - Led by a guy named Christian was a whole lot fun! The Quads are really easy to drive and they prepare you with giant jumpsuits and helmets and gloves. The trip starts off on streets and then quickly takes you off road where you will fly past a lake and up into trails with puddles and some fun terrain. You will get to the top of a hill that overlooks the city for some pictures. I really enjoyed this.

    The Whale watching was also a lot of fun, we spotted a few Minke whales, dolphins and some birds doing aerial battle. Again they provide you with warm jumpsuits for all kinds of sizes for adults and children.

    I highly recommend this excursion!

  • What a fun day! 4-wheeling outside, taking in all the views and seeing Reykjavik from the top of a mountain nearby! Our guide, Hinrik, was fun, funny and full of adventure. And the combination of this trip with the whale watching cruise - great day! Hint: the seas are choppy, just take the sea tablet that is offered or your whole trip will be ruined!

  • Hump back and minkey whales, plus dolphins. Just fantastic!! Quad bikes good but a little well controlled. ie. no opportunity to really let rip!! Still, overall, very, very happy..
