For this tour, you will meet up with your guide and group at the meeting point on the South Coast. There you will gear up in overalls and safety gear. You will also get a quick safety briefing and your guide will show you how to operate the ATV. Afterward, it’s time to hit the road – or better yet, the beach! On your way down to the DC-3 Plane Wreck, you will ride through some shallow rivers. Your overalls will keep you dry so don’t be afraid to get a little bit wet!

Once down at the DC-3 Plane, you will have time to explore the wreck. You’ll also be able to take plenty of photos of this iconic landmark.

It really couldn’t be any easier!

This tour is suitable for beginners. Kids from 7 years and up can ride on the ATV’s with their parents, making this a great tour for families, groups, and individual travelers. Please note that you need to hold a valid drivers license to drive an ATV. Those without a license can ride on in the back with their licensed travel partners. Please see this tour’s FAQ for more information.

This tour pairs perfectly with the Glacier Discovery Sólheimajökull tour. You can do both in one day!

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to have a valid drivers license to drive an ATV?

Yes, you must have a valid driving license and be at least 18 years of age to operate the ATV.

If you do not have a valid license, you can ride in the back of the ATV of your licensed travel partner. Kids also ride on the back of their parents’ ATV’s, who must hold a valid license.

What is the difference between a double ride and a single ride?

The standard price for the tour includes a double ride, which means that two persons ride together on one ATV.

If you would like to ride the ATV by yourself, you can book a single ride at an additional cost.

Note that ATV’s are not shared with other guests on the tour, so if you are traveling by yourself or in a group with odd numbers, such as 3 or 5, you must book a single ride for one person.
