About the tour
Your day begins with meeting our team at our Adventure Center in Vik! You’ll jump in the super jeep and head towards the mysterious black sands of Sólheimasandur. There you will witness a remote area where nature keeps changing with every volcanic eruption! Be a part of history!
Following, we will take you to the western side of Dyrhólaey to see the iconic Arch from private point of view. Seeing the arch from this direction is exciting because you’ll skip the crowds and see it from a unique direction not many have.
Along the way, our experienced local guides will share local folklore and knowledge about the area. Maybe even while you’re splashing through rivers and feasting your eyes on the dynamic landscapes!
After we cross the black desert the Douglas DC-3 aeroplane wreck will appear. It has been in that spot, since its crash in November 1973. You’ll see for yourself, how it has withstood the tests of time. There will be plenty of time to capture this photogenic area. Also know, if it’s a clear day, from this spot, you’ll view mighty volcanoes Eyjafjallajökull and Katla in the background!
So the question is… Are you ready for the Adventure?
