Since this is a private tour, you'll enjoy a personalized experience and can ask your guide as many questions as you like.

Now you'll be ready to venture into the untamed wilderness of South Iceland. Prepare for extra excitement as you cross streams and splash through the water. It's a fantastic, adrenaline-fueled ride.

You'll also ride across an ancient lava field and discover the remnants of the dramatic Eldgja volcano eruption in 934. This eruption was one of the most important volcanic events of the last thousand years. 

Your guide will tell you about the eruption as you see the volcanic structures it left behind.

The tour's highlight is Skaftarosviti, Iceland's oldest steel lighthouse. It towers above the landscapes surrounding it and provides a fantastic photo opportunity. You'll have the chance to step inside the cabin as your guide tells you about the rich history of the lighthouse.

Your guide will tell you fascinating stories about Iceland's folklore whenever you stop to enjoy the view. You'll learn about elves, trolls, and hidden beings. The tour is an excellent opportunity to combine the thrill of an ATV ride with an immersive cultural experience.

You'll also experience some of Iceland's iconic landscapes and natural sights. Race across lava fields, zoom through meadows, and ride across black-sand beaches as you admire the surrounding views. 

You'll be able to enjoy the serene ambiance of Iceland's pristine countryside as you navigate the winding trails.

Iceland's weather can change quickly, so wear warm, waterproof clothing for this tour. You should also wear sturdy shoes. High-quality hiking boots are a good choice.
