1. South Coast: ATV Quad Bike 2-Hour Safari

The adventure starts with a short safety briefing on how to operate the ATVs. When everyone is ready, it's take-off time, when you'll head for the majestic black sand plains of Sólheimasandur. Cross this desert-like landscape and stop by the famous DC3 plane that crashed on the sands in 1973. The guide will lead the group further over the sands to the spectacular coastline to witness views of the surrounding area. From the beach, see Dyrhólaey peninsula, the southernmost tip of Iceland. Looking inland, you can see the marvelous Mýrdalsjökull glacier in the distance. Heading back over the sands and following the Jökulsá river, your adventure will conclude as you cross a river to enter a stunning mountain valley.

A very great experience!! ATV riding is so much fun! You can really get what you can out of the companions, but the pace is always adjusted to the whole group so that everyone feels comfortable. We also had a very great guide! The ATV tour was not only action-packed and breathtakingly beautiful, but also very interesting and informative because we learned a lot about the surrounding volcanoes, the formation of Black Sand Beach and much more. This tour is really recommended for everyone, young and old.

An amazing experience. We had never driven an ATV before but instructions were clear and it was easy to use. Absolutely stunning driving along the black sand beaches and to the plane wreck. Plenty of other fun parts to the drive along the way. It rained the whole time but it honestly did not matter as the clothing provided was enough to keep you clean, warm and dry. Recommend +++

Well worth it! Nice accompanist. Two birds with one blow. You don't have to do the boring one hour walk there and an hour back to the plane wreck and you are still very active. I loved it.

This ended up being a last-minute pick but totally worth it. A really fun way to get to experience Iceland’s beauty.

Guide was absolutely amazing, tour was fun and learned a bit!
