SOUTH COAST AND BLACK BEACH RIDE
The Ultimate Quad Bike Tour
On this extraordinary tour, you will ride a powerful ATV over a vast black volcanic beach, walk behind a thundering veil of water at Seljalandsfoss and absorb the incredible view over Iceland’s South Coast from the top of Skógafoss Waterfall.
ATV biking is a great way to explore the volcanic black sandy beaches and views of the volcanoes and glaciers along the south coast. Drive to the raw sandy beach, through small rivers and streams, which derive from the dormant volcano Katla. Make your way to the DC-3 plane wreck from 1973, which was recently featured in Justin Bieber’s music video.
On our way back to Reykjavík, we stop by the powerful Skógafoss Waterfall where a short walk up a flight of steps will reveal one of Iceland’s most scenic views. We then stop at the 60-meter high Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, famous for the hidden pathway behind and around it.
Join our tour and step aboard one of our new buses, fully equipped with WiFi-connected computer tablets for each guest. The tablets provide you with a continuous stream of relevant information along the journey with a GPS-synced Audio Guide, available in a choice of 10 languages. Along the tour, our local hosts will make your experience comfortable and are happy to answer any questions you might have about our peculiar country. In each seat, you will also find a USB outlet to charge any of your devices.
All in all this tour is an unforgettable experience of conflicting landscapes where nature envelops the traveler in its warm embrace.
