Those wanting to add a bit of thrill to their sightseeing day should book this tour now. 

After a morning pickup, the tour starts with a scenic drive through a dark lava field. You'll drive by the volcanic Hengill mountain range on your way to the southern lowlands. The infamous glacier-capped Eyjafjallajökull volcano will start appearing on the horizon the further east you go.

After driving down the South Coast, you will make a stop at the base of Mýrdalsjökull glacier, where you will gear up for the ATV ride that awaits.  There is no better way to explore the black desert of Sólheimasandur than on ATV bikes, and while whizzing through the dark landscape, you can enjoy the views of Mýrdalsjökull glacier and the southern coastline all the way to Dyrhólaey peninsula.

You will drive on the raw sandy beach which originated from the dormant volcano Katla, through small rivers and streams, as you make your way to the DC3 plane wreck which crashed there in 1973. Luckily, there were no casualties, but the wreckage provides visitors with some fantastic photo opportunity. Most recently, it was seen in Justin Bieber’s music video and photo shoots. 

After an adventurous ATV ride, your journey continues to the waterfalls Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss. At Skógarfoss, a short walk up a flight of steps will reveal one of Iceland's most scenic views which include glaciers, volcanoes and the Highlands. 

Then, you'll drive the short distance to the 60-metre high Seljalandsfoss waterfall, famous for the hidden pathway that leads you behind the curtain of water. 

Explore the beautiful contrasting scenery of the South Coast with this fantastic ATV tour. Check availability by choosing a date.
