The South Coast of Iceland is by far a geological masterpiece of past volcanic activity. South Coast has some of the most beautiful black sand beaches in Iceland and an impressive volcanic and glacial relief. Exploring the South Coast is such an exciting experience and it can become unforgettable if you choose to explore it on an ATV tour.

Our friends from Arcanum are organizing some ATV tours on the South Coast of Iceland during summertime and you can definitely have to try one.


 ATV – Black Beach Safari and the Plane Wreck and ATV-Express

After that, together with your guide, you will start the drive, through small rivers, and streams, to the sandy beach which derives from the dormant volcano Katla. After a fun ride on the black beach, the next stop is at the famous DC3 plane wreck where you will adore the amazing view up to Mýrdalsjökull glacier and then you will ride along the big black coast all the way to Dyrhólaey, the southernmost part of Iceland. After the beautiful stop, the tour continues to the river Jökulsá and up to the foot of Mt. Heiðarhorn. Along the mountains, you will head back to the base.
