Our path runs through various lava fields, our old harbor which is now a recreational area with dramatic shipwrecks, and over hundred-year-old foundations that remain unspoiled and protected for a reminder of the old life. We’ll ride along the coastline through rocky mountain paths taking a left turn for fun up and down the path to a lunarscape-looking valley that reminds you of a Sci-Fi movie scene. If you’ve ever wondered how it’s to drive between 2 mossy volcanic craters then that’s what’s going to happen on the way to the black sandy beach! You’ll feel amazed by the sights on the way where you can literally feel the human-vulnerable force our earth can pull upon us.

Arriving to the black sandy beach of Selatangar (Sealbay) you’re pretty much back in the Viking years. In this area, there are old fishing villages from the middle ages where Vikings settled in for fishing purposes until 1886. You’ll see foundations of their settlements where they only had carved lava rocks to build their huts and sheds from, using driftwood as rooftops. They have been declared inviolate but are unfortunately a portion of them are getting slowly shattered from vicious wave breaks during high tide. The waves are often really high in this area and follow up with great birdlife, sometimes you’ll even see a curious seal pop up from the ocean to say hello.

On the way back you’ll also see sheep and horses. The Icelandic horses stay outside most of the winter and grow extra thick fur looking very prideful in their natural habitat. If time is in our favor, we’ll head to the summit of our ATV-trailed Mt.Hagafell for a breathtaking 360’ panoramic view overlooking the area.

Our very experienced guides have great knowledge about their homeland and will share interesting facts with your group. They are the best in their business and will make sure you’ll feel safe on the tour. The buggies are very user-friendly with an automatic transmission and a heavy-duty suspension offering great stability and each buggy hosts up to four persons.

No prior experience is needed, all you need is a spirit for adventure and a valid driving license for the driver!
