What you'll experience.

Join the ATV plane wreck and black sand beach tour and cross two things of your bucket list. You’ll ride an ATV on a black sand beach and see the DC plane wreck on Sólheimasandur beach.

ATV/Quad biking is a great way to explore the raw black sandy beaches on the south coast.

The adventure begins at the operators base where you’ll get familiar with the ATV’s/Quad’s and gear up. After your guide has gone through the safety instructions you’ll start the drive! The tour will take you trough small rivers and streams and to the black sand beach so get ready for an exciting adventure.

After a fun ride on the black beach you’ll make a stop at the famous DC plane wreck to adore the amazing view up to Mýrdalsjökull glacier and along the big black coast all the way to Dyrhólaey, the southernmost part of Iceland. When you have soaked up the beautiful sights you’ll continue to the river Jökulsá and up to the foot of Mt. Heiðarhorn. From the mountain your guide will lead you back to the base.

The ATV plane wreck tour offers an unforgettable experience in the beautiful Icelandic nature!

The tour can also be done as a day tour from Reykjavik. The South Coast and ATV/Quad combo tour will take you to the magnificent waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skógarfoss.

Please note: To operate the ATV’s/Quad’s a valid driver’s license is required.
