The tour

The fun and exciting Lava Beach ATV tour operates from the town of Grindavík. Grindavík is located on the Reykjanes peninsula geopark. You will meet up with your guide for the day at 4×4 Adventures basecamp. There you will receive a short safety briefing and receive the necessary gear before starting your tour.

The Lava beach ATV tour take you through historic lava fields by the old harbour area Hópsnes. The area now serves as a recreational outdoor area. There you can find abandoned shipwrecks and age old foundations from the beginning of Grindavík’s settlement. These foundations remain unspoiled and protected as a reminder of the old life.

You will then continue your adventure by riding along the coastline. From there you will drive through fun and mildly challenging mountain trails with views from out of this world. The mountain trail leads you to the black sandy beach of Selatangar (Seal bay). In the area you will see old fishing huts from the 11th century where fishermen were stationed when rowing out to sea until 1886. You will see foundations of their settlements and how they carved lava rocks to build their huts and sheds and using driftwood for their roofs. They have been declared inviolate but unfortunately some of them are getting slowly shattered by the vicious wave during high tides.
