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 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.

We booked in for the ATV Quad bike safari but unfortunately due to the weather we were told that it wasn't possible. BUT the amazing people at Icelandic Mountain Guides gladly offered a FREE upgrade to their Vik: Mýrdalsjökull Snowmobile Adventure which was amazing! The ATV Quad bike adventure looked like it would have been great but this was definitely a very welcome upgrade! My partner and I would 100% recommend booking anything with this great company!

This is such an amazing adventure. We are a family of gran, grandad, mum, dad and 2 children aged 10and 8. It was a vey cold day for our trip but once in our suits and helmets we were fine apart from our thumbs (wear gloves). Anthony our English speaking guide explained many interesting things to us and gave us info on the crashed plane. We had such a great time - Thanks for everything Anthony . You must experience this adventure.

Great experience! Passage in rivers, stroll on the black sand beach, stop at the abandoned plane and passage in a canyon, it was great. Super well supervised, explanation at each stop, I recommend this excursion with this organization. Little more, the guide spoke to us in French.

We had a great time. I never drove an ATV before and it was pretty easy. Our guide (Levi) was so kind and very informative. I would highly recommend this trip!

One if the most exciting experiences of my life, the guides were super! Would do again, if I return
