Practical tour information

This tour is a combination of our South coast tour and Arcanum’s ATV quad bike ride on the black volcanic sand beach.

You start out with the bus from Reykjavik and head off along the South coast to meet up with the quads.

The quad tour begins at the ARCANUM base where we go over the tour plan and safety instructions. On the tour you cross some small rivers, drive across black lava sand fields which drives from the dormant volcano Katla.

You can enjoy the amazing view up to the Mýrdalsjökull glacier and along the coast to the southernmost point of Iceland, the small peninsula Dyrhólaey. You also make a stop by the famous aircraft wreck.

Back at base the bus picks you up and on the way back to Reykjavík we stop by the magnificent waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss.

Please note that you need a valid drivers licence.
