    1. South Coast: ATV Quad Bike 2-Hour Safari

    The adventure starts with a short safety briefing and instruction on how to operate the ATV's. When everyone is ready, it's take off time, when you'll head for the majestic black sand plains of Sólheimasandur. Crossing this desert-like landscape, stop by the famous DC3 plane that crashed on the sands on 1973. The guide will lead the group further over the sands to the spectacular coastline to witness amazing views of the surrounding area. From the beach, you will be able to see Dyrhólaey peninsula, the southernmost tip of Iceland. looking inland, the marvellous Mýrdalsjökull glacier can be seen in the distance. Heading back over the sands and following the Jökulsá river, this amazing adventure will conclude as you cross a river to enter a stunning mountain valley.

    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.
