The tour begins at the ARCANUM base nearby the Mýrdalsjökull glacier in South Iceland. We start by going over the tour plan and safety instructions. From the base we cross some small rivers and head down to the black lava sands fields which derives from the dormant volcano Katla.

Down by the black beach we stop and enjoy the amazing view up to the Mýrdalsjökull glacier and along the coast to the southernmost part of Iceland, the small peninsula Dyrhólaey. We then head along the coast to the famous aircraft wreck on Sólheimasandur, from there we continue to the river Jökulsá and up to the foot of the mountain. Upon our return we follow the mountain back to the base.

On this tour you can get in touch with the raw black lava sand landscape by the south coast. Unforgettable experience of conflicting landscapes where the nature envelops the traveller in its warm embrace.

A valid driver's licence is required for driving the ATV.

Reviews from users

Our experience on our ATV tour was excellent!! We were so very happy with our tour guide who made the experience fun while still educating us on interesting facts along our tour and even shared some suggestions for where we should go next. We took MANY pictures along the way and would be happy to share. I would definitely recommend this experience to a friend. We had a lot of fun and definitely got wet wet, but the cold is easily mitigated by the suits and gloves.
