We did a 2 hour quad biking tour on the black sand beaches and it was absolutely awesome. We also opted for a pick up from Reykjavík as we didn’t have a car. This was a nice journey where we also got to see more of the beautiful Iceland - thanks again Grétar! Back to the tour though, it was so fun, the black sand beaches were beautiful and you get the chance to drive pretty fast and don’t have to drive in a line behind the guide. Our guide Einar was nice & made us feel at ease. After that we did some off-roading then a little bit of driving on the roads to the cliffs. It was amazing to see the huge waves there. 100% recommend this tour & this company as they were very professional. Thanks, Faye & Luke

We can't rate this high experience enough! A must do experience if you are visiting Iceland. We added this tour onto another tour earlier that day (Golden Circle) and then met the driver where we were taken to do the ATV tour. Although we took our GoPro out with us he took plenty of photographs during the tour and sent them to us at the end! A brilliant way to see the black sand beach and Icelandic scenic beauty!

This trip was an absolute highlight of the week we spent in Iceland. I went with my 9 year old daughter, and she absolutely loved it. She gives her two highlights of a packed week in Iceland as the Blue Lagoon and the Black Beach ATV. There was great communication before the trip, and we were very lucky to be there on a quiet time, so we had a personal tour. Ossi did a great job of explaining how to use the quad bike, so even as a novice it all felt safe, even with a child. He did a great job of letting us manage the pace, speeding up and having more challenging terrain as I got familiar with it. My daughter felt completely safe the whole time. The beach itself is amazing. We toured at a time when there was snow on the beach, and a memory that will last for a long time will be of driving through the snow leaving dark black tyre marks in the sand. We saw a whale, and large chunks of ice as the river flowed into the sea. Ossi did a great job of explaining the environment to us, and regularly stopped to take great photos (which he had already sent to me before we had even left). A real highlight for my daughter was that she was allowed to drive the ATV briefly, and it's something that she couldn't stop talking about for days. When we returned to the base, he offered us ice cream and drinks. On the way home he very kindly took a more scenic detour and showed us more of Iceland and explained the landscape to us. It's so hard to know what a tour is like when booking on the internet, but this is some of the best money I have spent in years. This business deserves to be on the top ten lists of things to see and do in Iceland. Thank you.

What an awesome time! Ossi, the owner, was great in accomodating my last minute show-up and taking me and my family of 7 (me, my wife, and my 16yo, 13yo, 12yo, 8yo, and 6yo kids) on 3 ATVs + his guide ATV. They are 450cc BRPs which are relatively new and perfect for these types of excursions and very easy to operate, especially for neophytes. You must have a driver's license to drive one of these, but luckily my oldest son just got his AND he had experience with my ATV back in Maine. So, my wife had an ATV, I had one, and my oldest son had one, and the rest of my kids rode shotgun on each of the four ATVs. What an awesome time! Ossie is kind and patient and he even took videos and pictures of all of us on the trip, sending the files to us later. There was even a dead baby Sperm whale which had washed up on the beach a few months ago, but was quite intact and fascinating to check out. Though a baby, it was probably 15 or 20 feet long! Riding through the back trails on the way back was lots of fun, especially fording the full-of-water trails. He gave a great deal and I and my family will certainly be back when we return soon! Thanks Ossi!
