Full description

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.

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 +++

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.

For Tour it was really cool, but it all seemed a bit unprofessional and overpriced. The guide looked like he just wanted to get it over with and we felt a bit fed up. The guide also always drove up about 300 meters and rattled down his program at the sights. But if you got into conversation with him, he bloomed and liked to talk a lot and was friendly. But it was nice that the guide kept asking whether everyone felt safe and comfortable.
