Quads and Caves - ATV Tour
Quad & Caves is our most popular combo activity day tour from Reykjavik and it's great value for money. The lava tunnel exploration is a relatively mild caving experience, suitable for everyone in decent physical shape.
We will enter through narrow cave entrances and find they open out to reveal an extraordinary scenery of lava formations and unexpected colours.You will see natural stalactites and different rock formations making this an experience of majestic and almost indescribable beauty.
The cave becomes wide and high in some places and with an even floor. However, the trip can also be tricky at times, since you need to crawl in a few places.We recommend you wear good walking shoes or hiking boots which are suitable for walking on uneven lava surfaces.After exploring the cave we will devote some time on the way back to Reykjavík to visit wooden racks where fish has been hanged up. This is a traditional method of fish preservation, simply allowing the cold wind and sun to dry it.Dry fish, or stockfish (in Icelandic, "harðfiskur"), has been a popular food in Iceland throughout the centuries. This stop is also a great photo opportunity.
