Tour description

South Coast and DC-3 ATV Plane Wreck Excursion

ATV/Quad biking is a great way to explore the raw black sandy beaches on the south coast. 

The adventure begins at our main base, where we gear up and get to know the ATV’s/Quad. After we have gone through the safety instructions, we start the drive, through small rivers and streams, to the sandy beach derived from the dormant volcano Katla. After a fun ride on the black beach, we stop at a plane wreck to adore the fantastic view up to Mýrdalsjökull glacier and along the big black coast to Dyrhólaey, the southernmost part of Iceland. When we have synced in these beautiful sights, we continue to the river Jökulsá and up to the foot of Mt. Heiðarhorn. Along the mountains, we head back to the base. 

Unforgettable experience of conflicting landscapes where nature envelops the traveler in its warm embrace.
