  • South Coast: ATV Quad Bike 2-Hour Safari

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

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

    This tour was the highlight of our trip! Our guide Simeon was great and took us on some amazing trails! You go through rivers, onto the beach, and past some airplane wreckage. The end was my favorite when we went through moss covered canyons. Honestly it is well worth the money and I would absolutely do it again! Just book it. You won’t regret it.

What people are saying about Southern Region, Iceland

This was such an awesome addition to our trip. Victor did a wonderful job leading us along a trail through some short stream crossings, a couple tunnels, out to the black sand beach, to the DC-3 plane crash, and a couple other beautiful stops along the way, both along the beach and in a scenic mountain valley. We were able to have some fun and speed up quite a bit along the smooth sand, while mixing in some gritty terrain, too. I would definitely do this again.

Amazing experience to explore never ending black sand beaches, see the airplane and have fun driving an ATV! Our guide has been super and we definitely believe this is one of the most beautiful excursions we did. In 2H we saw so many landscapes and got a lot of info about Iceland.
