Thrilling Quad Bike Ride On A Black Sand Beach

After meeting your guide at the Arcanum Base (Mýrdalsjökull Base), your adventure begins. You’ll get geared up and receive a safety briefing before getting on your quad bike. As the guide leads the group down the coastline on the black sand beach, you will have stunning views of the ocean and Dyrhólaey, the southernmost tip of the country, and Mýrdalsjökull glacier. This truly off-roading experience leads you across small rivers to the famous Sólheimasandur plane wreck. After capturing memories that will last a lifetime, the guide will lead you back to the base camp.

Please note: All drivers must be 17 years of age or older and have a full, valid driver's license. A learner´s permit, tractor, or motorcycle license is not sufficient according to Icelandic law. Single riders and groups with odd numbers are required to book a single ride ATV.
