Iceland Travel Tips

ATV rides

There are various places where you can go for a ride on a ATV (All terrain vehicle) / Quad and experience the Iceland off roads. 

Ride along lava and black sand up between  mountains and then up onto the mountain where you can expect a good view over the Blue Lagoon for instance and the island of Eldey at the southern region. Good views over the sea and driving by the coast gives opportunity to see dramatic shipwrecks also. These are just a few of the tours you can go for when you order a ride on a ATV in Iceland. 

ATV / Quad biking in Iceland is a fun activity that everyone should try. The ATVs are automatic and easy to drive, so no experience is needed.  You do need an valid drivers licence and you can choose the difficulty level of trail that you take.  You have a choice between a 1 and a 2 seater so if you want to take along someone who can not drive there is also this possibility. 

Here are a few rental we recommend.

See the northern lights

If you travel to Iceland in the winter you may be lucky enough to witness the spectacular northern lights, or aurora borealis. Sometimes they may be strong enough so that you can catch a glimpse of them in whatever town you stay in, but for the optimal experience you want to travel as far away as you can from light pollution. If you decide to go aurora-hunting, you should be prepared and follow a few guidelines.
