Mýrdalsjökull: South Coast ATV Quad Bike Safari

Mýrdalsjökull: South Coast ATV Quad Bike Safari

Discover the southern coast of Iceland on a thrilling quad-bike adventure. Discover the wonderful landscapes near the Mýrdalsjökull Glacier, traversing the black sands of Sólheimasandur. Start with a short safety briefing on how to operate the ATVs. When everyone is ready, set off on your adventure and ride 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. Head to the spectacular coastline to experience fantastic views of the surrounding area. From the beach, admire the sight of the 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 Tour & DC-3 Plane Wreck

From Reykjavik: South Coast Tour & DC-3 Plane Wreck

After being picked up from your selected pickup spot in Reykjavik, you will head towards Iceland's southern coast. Drive past moss-covered lava fields as well as quaint farms and villages going through an area rich in viking history, heritage, and folklore. Go past several major volcanoes - such as Katla, Hekla, and the famous Eyjafjallajökull. With luck, on clear days you will have a view of the Westman Islands just off the coast. The first stop will be Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, a majestic site with a path that leads visitors behind the cascading water. If it is not frozen during the winter time, you will be able to walk behind the 60 metre waterfall. A three minute walk brings you to Gljúfrabui, another spectacular waterfall, hidden inside of a cave. Afterwards, stop at Skógafoss Waterfall, where it is possible to climb 572 steps to the top to view the magnificent vista and rainbows above. After exploring the beautiful waterfalls of the South coast you will spend the rest of the day visiting glaciers and the black sand beaches. At the vast plain of Solheimasandur, you will see where, in 1973, a US Navy DC-3 plane crashed. Nearby is the famous Reynisfjara beach. At the end of this adventurous tour, you will return to Reykjavik.
