Tour description

Iceland Black Sand Beach

Join us for a South Coast & DC-3 Plane Wreck Black Beach ATV Adventure

Get in touch with the raw power of black lava sand on Iceland’s south shore.

From Reykjavík, we drive towards Mýrdalsjökull glacier, where the volcano Katla is. We get our ATVs (all-terrain vehicles/quads) and start the adventure there. We will cross rivers and go to the peninsula Dyrhólaey and Sólheimasandur beach, where the famous DC-3 aircraft wreck is.

We will experience different landscapes and magnificent Icelandic flatlands on this fun, adventurous tour. 

Bollywood & Justin Bieber in Iceland

The abandoned DC-3 plane wreck has been photographed by countless travellers and filmed in a Bollywood movie and several TV commercials. It was also featured in the 2007 Sigur Rós documentary and Justin Bieber’sI’ll Show You music video.
