Our Side by sides off-road buggies are growing more and more popular. They’re the perfect fit for the adventurous family, the group of friends who’d like to have a good laugh together buckled in a Mad Max feel-like cage on four wheels riding through our furious area. This is a great way to explore the nature and a have a thrill whilst doing it.
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 a fun up and down 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 whats 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-voulnerable force our earth can pull up on 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 a extra thick fur looking very prideful in their natural habitat. If time is in our favour, we’ll head to the summit of our ATV trailed Mt.Hagafell for a breathtaking 360’ panoramic view overlooking the area!
Our guides are all highly experienced to outdoors and 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.
