The Midnight Sun ATV Tour

The Midnight Sun ATV tour offers you the unique opportunity to enjoy the best views of Reykjavík at sundown. On this popular tour, you will explore the nature found just outside of Reykjavík. You’ll ride to the top of a mountain where you can enjoy picture-perfect city views. We recommend this one if you are looking for an evening activity in Reykjavík.

This tour is only available from May till the end of July!

On the outskirts of Reykjavík, you will find nature’s treasure trove, an area perfect for ATV exploration. For 2 hours, you will ride on various terrain in this area. You will drive along Lake Hafravatn and up to the top of Hafrafell mountain. There you can enjoy awe-inspiring views over Reykjavík and feel the magic of the midnight sun.

During this time of year, the skylights are ablaze with a colorful display of gold and orange just before midnight. These colors get more intense as dusk approaches. The sky illuminates for a few magic moments before the sun rises again.

Please note that all drivers on this tour must hold a valid driver’s license. Please see the FAQ for more information.
