Quad Bike Tour on Black Lava Sands

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Your morning or afternoon quad bike tour from Vik starts in Mýrdalshreppur. This tour offers three different departure times to choose from, so you can find one that fits best with your schedule.
    Once you meet your guide, he or she will set you up with the proper equipment for the ride, and go over some important safety instructions with you. Afterward, start up your ATV, and follow your guide from nearby the Mýrdalsjökull glacier, across a few rivers, and down to the black-sand beach.
    At the beach, stop and take in views of the glacier from afar as you reach the small peninsula of Dyrhólaey. Head further down the coast to catch a glimpse of the 40-year-old abandoned US aircraft wreckage. Your adventure ends back at your original departure point at about two hours after your tour began.

    Yes. You can both ride on one. I rode on the back. The person on the back just has to be prepared for a very bumpy ride for parts of the tour.
