Get ready for a true Icelandic adventure on this thrilling tour of the South Coast of Iceland. On this combination of ATV and RIB Boat tours, you can enjoy the black volcanic beach both from the ocean and on land.

Your guide will inform you about the nature and history of specific stops along the route. You will get to know the area, both via activity, as well as receiving knowledge straight from the locals.

The RIB Boat Tour takes you along the beach, where you will make various stops for photo opportunities. In between, you sail by the beach on the speedboat for a proper adrenaline kick. On the ATV trip, you can ride on your ATV at the black volcanic beach, or be a passenger with a friend. The driver of the ATV will need to have a valid driver’s licence.

Highlights of the trip are the black volcanic beaches and the lighthouse Hafnarnesviti, along with its surroundings; rocky headland Þyrstlingsnef and Selvogur Bay. You will also visit the Lighthouse Selvogsviti and a nearby shipwreck that lies abandoned on the black sands.

You will visit Herdísarvík cove, where the famous Icelandic poet Einar Ben lived, and the mythical Strandakirkja. Legend says if a prayer to the right saint is left there, a wish will be granted. You can always try your luck. 

Of course, there will be seabirds galore, and if you are lucky, maybe whales and seals.

The trip is suitable for children from 6 years of age. The boat ride can be a bumpy one so this is not a trip for people with back problems. 

The minimum participants per trip are five, and if the operator does not reach the minimum passenger requirements they might need to reschedule your trip. Maximum passengers per boat are 12 so if your group is larger you will be divided into two boats.

The trip is about 2.5 hours and combines adrenaline with nature and guidance. You need to arrive 30 minutes prior to departure to get your provided gear and go through the safety issues.

This trip is perfect for those you want to experience the full extent of Icelandic coastal nature, and have a fun day out on the beach. Check availability by choosing a date.
