It was an amazing new experience, that I personally think every visitor in Iceland should try. The weather was cold but still very nice. We especially liked the panorama and the smoothness of the ride even though we were beginners.

We had originally booked the snow mobile tour but the weather got in the way. They offered to reschedule or send us on the ATV tour of the black sand beaches and the DC-3 plane wreck. We opted to go for the ATV tour since who knows with the weather. We were not disappointed.

My husband and I did the ATV tour with guide Max. He was fantastic! The ride was a lot of fun, despite some crazy weather (to be expected in Iceland). We visited the black sand beach and the site of the US Navy plane crash. Then we made it to the other side of Ring Road and

Hi swift The ATV tour truly is incredible! The changing weather patterns make it even more enjoyable, sometimes you can experience all 4 seasons in just 1 hour :) Maksim is very safety conscious and we are proud to hear that you had a nice experience with him. We are glad to know this trip was a highlight for you and your husband. Warm regards from Iceland, Danielle
