After the driver guide whisks you out of Reykjavík, you will travel along a road that features wonderful waterfalls, ocean views, mountains and glaciers. After arriving at the Arcanum base camp, the guide will provide you with the appropriate gear and a safety briefing. While on the quad bikes, you cross small rivers before heading to the magnificent black sand beach and field that have been formed from the nearby Katla volcano. 

On the drive along the black beach, you’ll enjoy views of the ocean,  up  Mýrdalsjökull glacier, and of Dyrhólaey, a small peninsula that is the southernmost part of Iceland.
