Beginning close to the Mýrdalsjökull glacier, head down to the black lava sands fields, which derive from the dormant volcano Katla, then continue along the coast to the famed aircraft wreck, onto the Jökulsá river and up to the foot of the mountain.

Highlight of our trip!
, Jul 2022
We had such a great time! The landscape was varied from beautiful lush green canyons, small water crossings to black sand beaches. Even though we had no ATV experience, we felt safe. Very professionally run.
Don’t miss this tour!

This tour was so worth it! It has been the highlight of our trip so far! Lots of sights to see, the terrain changed often which was surprising and so great! The guides were kind, patient and knowledgeable. Highly recommend!

Tour was great, need to do better and clean
, Apr 2022
The tour itself was amazing. However don’t ever use the shoes they give you. The shoes haven’t been cleaned properly and smell disgusting after you take them off. My feet have never smelled before in my life but after this tour I had to throw away my socks and personal shoes which cost $300. They need to do a better job of cleaning the shoes. My wife also threw away her socks and shoes. They stench was so disgusting I tried to wash the shoes to save them but there’s nothing that could be done to remove the smell. The smell actually filled up our entire hotel room and finally I threw them in the trash.
Must give it a go

Views were breath taking guide was lovely. Got to see all we was promised the gear was clean. Lots of time to take pictures. Only thing is was a long drive to just do once with with plan others things next time that way.
Good time

First time driving a quad bike for me. A little scary, but it was fun. 11 year old son rode with dad. Everyone stayed in one line. We kept a good speed. Went through lots of different terrains. Wish we could have stopped for more pics, especially over the water sections. Good fun.

Tour en quad sur la plage de sable noir
, Nov 2021
Un tour en quad sportif, dynamique, très complet, une belle vue du sable noir de la plage de Vik/ de l’épave du DC-3/ des cascades. Mention spéciale pour notre guide français Florian qui a été hyper professionnel. Un tour inoubliable
