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.

From Reykjavik: South Coast and Black Beach ATV Ride

2. From Reykjavik: South Coast and Black Beach ATV Ride

Ride a powerful ATV over a large, black, volcanic beach, walk behind the thundering veil of water at Seljalandsfoss waterfall, and take in the incredible view over Iceland's South Coast from the top of the cascade Skógafoss on this fantastic day tour.  After being picked up early in the morning or meeting up with your guide at Reykjavík Terminal, head to Iceland's South Coast, famous for its dramatic coastline and cascading waterfalls. Your first stop is the black desert of Sólheimasandur, in the shadow of Eyjafjallajökull glacier, where you'll swap the bus for a powerful ATV quad-bike.  After traversing the stark, black beaches of Island's South Coast on your ATV bike, make your way to the DC3 plane wreck from 1973, recently seen in Justin Bieber’s music video and photo shoots. Looking northwards and inland, the Mýrdalsjökull glacier rises majestically, while to the south you can sense the raw power of the enormous Atlantic waves crashing on to the shore. Once back on the bus, continue your journey and visit an iconic waterfall duo: Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss. The former falls from the heights of 60-metres, and a staircase next to it will lead you to unbelievable views of the South Coast and Iceland's interior. Seljalandsfoss, however, is a narrower cascade which falls over a concave cliff, making it possible to fully encircle the stream of water.

What people are saying about Vik

This is an amazing tour and for sure the best way to reach the plane crash site. Instead of one hour walking to the site, you spend the time in a thrill adventure that also includes black beach, driving through tunnels, rocks and lavender gardens with a great finish to a visit to a valley with a river of water coming directly from the glacier. The time spent in the plane site crash was more than enough to take all the pictures you need. Our tour guide was amazing and helpful. I definitely recommend this activity.

Our guide was excellent. It’s too bad the other participants did not read the description of the tour. It read ‘ not for beginners, intermediate’. Two people were clearly beginners and slowed the whole group down. The guide had to continually stop to wait for those who were not comfortable driving an ATV which really ruined the entire trip for the others.. despite this the black sand beach was super fun to drive in and made it a unique way of getting to the plane wreck. I loved going through the streams.

This was a great adventure, the guides were so cool, lots fun, a definite must do… the black sand beaches are so vast, it feels unreal. (FYI - When you book your tour, you are apparently paying a price for 2 individuals to share 1 bike… but it’s not indicated when booking… we had to pay extra for a separate bike)

It was well worth it even just for the ATV part alone. Felt like being on another planet. Our guide was very knowledgeable and funny and made the drive go by fast. Fair warning though, you will probably get wet if you want to get close to the waterfalls. Amazing trip, I would highly recommend

Excellent tour with ATVs. Tour guide was amazing...full of interesting stories plus extra stops. A must do!
