Black sands and rivers

This tour begins after you meet your ATV guide at the Base by Mýrdalsjökull glacier. You will receive all the necessary gear and a short safety briefing before venturing to ride on Iceland’s iconic black beaches.

The guide will lead the group to the stunning coastline to witness breathtaking views of the surrounding area. You’ll marvel at the views of Dyrhólaey, a peninsula that is the southernmost tip of the country, and the marvellous Mýrdalsjökull glacier in the distance.

After leaving the beach, the group will head to the famous Sólheimasandur plane wreck. This relic has been resting in the sand since 1973. Following the plane, you will drive to the Jökulsá river and up the foot of the mountain. This action-packed tour ends when you arrive back at the base.

Please note: A valid driver’s license is required to drive a quad bike. Single riders and groups with odd numbers are required to book a single-ride ATV.
